Applications of Computers in Pharma and Medical Sciences

R.N. Indhe, P.V. Gulaskar


The purpose of the present research was to study the applications of computers in pharmacy. The researches will be long-lasting and costly without using the computers. Using computers is useful for the patient profile monitoring, drug interactions, medication, database management such as different softwares (PubMed, RasMol, NCBI etc.), material management, drug information services, patient counseling, billing and purchasing. The 21st century is a century for robotics. Robots have long borne the potential to bridge the gap between the cybernetic world (the internet of things) and the physical world. As the most promising candidate to theme the next major industrial revolution succeeding the present third (digital) industrial revolution, robotics is set to play an ever increasingly important role in the society for its influence in every aspect of life in Hong Kong, including medicine and healthcare, building service, manufacturing, food production, logistics and transportation.
