ARxIUM, developer of pharmacy automation and workflow products, has signed an agreement with Wael Pharmacy Company (W.L.L.) to serve as the distributor of its RIVA automated IV compounding system in Bahrain.
RIVA is a fully automated compounding system that prepares syringes and IV bags in an aseptic ISO Class 5 environment, which 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,” says Dr. Niels Erik Hansen, President and CEO of ARxIUM.
Founded in 1966, Manama-based Wael Pharmacy is the country’s leading supplier of specialized healthcare equipment and services. The company 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.
“This new partnership reaffirms our dedication to bringing the world’s most innovative medical and pharmaceutical products to our country’s healthcare providers,” says 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.”
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 utilizing RIVA systems, hospitals have the opportunity to experience substantial cost savings due to improved workflow and reduced pharmacy waste, among several other benefits.
