A robotic pharmacy in Saudi Arabia is changing the medical game making lines shorter and trips to the pharmacy faster.

This all-new “smart pharmacy” uses robots to scan prescriptions to prepare and dispense medicine, monitor drug safety and expiration dates as well as manage stocks and ensure proper drug storage standards.

These robots will save employees time they would otherwise spend on filling prescriptions, allowing pharmacists to further educate patients about their prescriptions.

Self-service machines are also available to help customers buy pharmaceutical products that do not require doctor prescriptions.

The company says this technology is the first of its kind to be used in Saudi Arabia and fits perfectly with the country’s 2030 development plan to diversify the kingdom’s economy away from oil revenue.
