Robots sterilize surgical tools without human intervention, reducing incidences of infections and freeing up hospital staff time. Robotic systems dispense drugs in pharmacies with zero errors while automated kiosks allow patients to enter medical symptoms and receive customized recommendations and information. Automation dramatically reduces errors and helps improve outcomes.
