US group seals partnership with Wael Pharma

MANAMA, July 9, 2016

US-based pharmacy automation and workflow solutions developer ARxIUM said it has signed an agreement with Bahrain-based Wael Pharmacy Company for the distribution of its Riva automated IV compounding system in the kingdom.

Riva, the only fully automated compounding system on the market today, prepares syringes and IV bags in an aseptic ISO Class 5 environment, which significantly enhances patient safety and increases efficiency.

“Partnering with an industry-leader such as Wael Pharmacy will increase our presence in Bahrain and help meet growing interest in Riva’s ability to produce accurate, safe medications,” explained Dr Niels Erik Hansen, the president and CEO of ARxIUM.

“Widely-known for its strong market presence and industry knowledge, the company’s expertise helps create several immediate opportunities for Riva to display its unmatched IV compounding capabilities and ability to produce a consistently strong return on investment,” he added.

Founded in 1966, Manama-based Wael Pharmacy is the country’s leading supplier of specialised healthcare equipment and services.

It is engaged in importing, warehousing, distributing and marketing several types of medical products (pharmaceutical, laboratory, healthcare consumer, surgical and more) to Bahrain’s government and private hospitals.

Working with many of the world’s leading healthcare equipment manufacturers, Wael Pharmacy provides high-quality customer service and support to ensure hospitals achieve maximum product integration and utilization, said its top official.

“This new partnership reaffirms our dedication to bringing the world’s most innovative medical and pharmaceutical products to our country’s healthcare providers,” remarked Dr Abdulrahman Almahmeed, chairman and managing director of Wael Pharmacy.

“In collaboration with our partners, we remain committed to improving the quality of life in Bahrain, and the introduction of Riva is another example of how we plan to achieve that goal,” noted Dr Almahmeed.

In the Middle East, Riva systems are safely and successfully preparing IV medications at King Faisal Specialist Hospital & Research Centre in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

By installing and utilising Riva systems, hospitals have the opportunity to experience substantial cost savings due to improved workflow and reduced pharmacy waste, among several other benefits, he added.-TradeArabia News Service
