The Dubai Health Authority (DHA) inaugurated on January 2017 a smart pharmacy with the first robot in the Middle East for dispensing and prescribing medication in Rashid Hospital. The robot, which can store up to 35,000 medicines and dispenses around 12 prescriptions in less than one-minute reducing customer’s waiting time. Robot dispensing process will be paper free as the robot will store the prescription as soon as the doctor documents it electronically. The robot dispenses the prescribed medication with a click of a bottom based on a barcode, minimizing any human error.
