Fred IT launches Australia’s first Artificial Intelligence in pharmacy dispensing

Fred IT Group has launched Australia’s first use of artificial intelligence in pharmacy in its new dispensing platform, called Fred Dispense Plus, to provide pharmacy with more intuitive dispensing and faster access to clinical decision-making.

The new tool – called Fred AID, which stands for Artificial Intelligence Directions – uses artificial intelligence to predict medication directions. The tool allows pharmacists to quickly and safely enter directions for dispensing labels, using a shortcut to copy or edit directions rather than typing these from scratch.
