Johns Hopkins will use software developed by ForHealth Technologies to automatically prepare injectable medications.

Supporters argue that, in theory, the technology will also cut down on medication errors. Robots are becoming increasingly common in the automatic filling of drugs in pill form in hospitals and pharmacies. Article
