King Faisal Specialist Hospital & Research Centre (KFSH&RC) takes a leap into the future with the introduction of Nour R1, a humanoid robot designed to provide innovative information and communication technology (ICT) services to enhance the overall experience for both employees and patients.

Nour R1, with its striking presence, promises to reshape the Healthcare Information Technology Affairs (HITA) services landscape within the hospital.

Deployed initially at the HITA Express Booth, Nour R1 is a friendly assistant, guiding staff members through technical support issues. Equipped with cutting-edge artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning algorithms, Nour R1 possesses the ability to engage in Arabic and English language interactions and identify staff members by their faces. As Nour R1 gradually integrates into the hospital's ecosystem, it is primed to streamline HITA operations and boost productivity within the Operations & Support Department.

As Nour R1 becomes increasingly integrated into the hospital's daily operations, it will take on more responsibilities, including providing wayfinding assistance, responding to patient inquiries, and offering real-time updates on hospital events and activities.
