Optimising carers' time: The impact of AMR robots on hospital logistics
Healthcare professionals are the heroes who look after our well-being. Carers play a vital role in the patient care process, but it is imperative to recognise that for them to be truly present for their patients, they need optimised time and resources. This is where autonomous mobile robots (AMRs) come in, offering innovative solutions to offload logistical tasks and improve the efficiency of day-to-day care.

The importance of carers' time

Carers' time is a precious resource, and every minute spent on logistical or administrative tasks is one less minute they can spend with their patients. 

Maximising the time that healthcare professionals spend directly with their patients is crucial to ensuring quality care.
According to the national survey carried out by the ANAP in 2023, "between 5% and 30% of healthcare workers' time is devoted to managing flows such as restocking medicines, routing sterilisation, linen, catering, etc.". "


Reducing carers' journeys with AMR robots

Frequent and sometimes lengthy journeys between different areas of healthcare establishments can represent a significant loss of time for carers. AMR robots can be deployed to deliver medical equipment or medicines, reducing the need for staff to constantly move from one place to another.

By using robots for these logistical tasks, caregivers can stay closer to patients, responding quickly to their needs and improving the overall care experience.
The KOMPAÏ delivery Top module + and Top module robots are AMR robots equipped with a cabinet (large or medium capacity) that can automatically transport medical equipment such as endoscopes, medicines, chemotherapy bags or laboratory products.

Optimising internal delivery processes for medical equipment and medicines with AMR robots

AMR robots are equipped with advanced sensors and intelligent software that enable them to navigate autonomously in complex environments such as healthcare establishments. By optimising delivery processes, carers can focus on higher value-added activities such as patient interaction, clinical decision-making and care coordination.

Carers can 'order' a robot directly from the care department.  To take charge of an "errand", the robot will automatically come into the department to collect the items and will navigate the corridors to its destination.

The advantages of AMR robots in medical logistics

Increased efficiency: AMR robots can operate 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, ensuring fast and reliable medical logistics.

Reduced human error: By automating logistics tasks, AMR robots minimise the risk of human error, ensuring accurate management of medical supplies.

Optimised travel: The robots can choose the shortest and most efficient routes, reducing the number of kilometres travelled by carers.


Caregivers are the backbone of the healthcare system, and it's our duty to provide them with the tools they need to optimise their time with patients. AMR robots are emerging as innovative solutions for offloading logistical tasks, reducing travel and maximising healthcare efficiency. By investing in these technologies, we are creating an environment conducive to quality care and a greater presence of carers where they are needed most: alongside their patients.
