“At KKH, we recently implemented the Pharmacy Automation System at our emergency pharmacy to improve patient safety and experience.   We are exploring the possibility of extending this project and working with the SingHealth cluster to materialise the Central Pharmacy concept.   This entails consolidating prescription refills across SingHealth institutions, automating medication packing at a central location and providing patients with various preferred delivery options.   Other than providing greater convenience to patients, we also expect to reap manpower efficiencies.”
