About the project
Connect Pharmacy is a medicine affordability program that allows patients to receive sponsored discounts by providing their mobile number. In return, they receive health education messages and refill reminders to help them maintain their condition, while also building customer loyalty with their local pharmacies. In addition, the program provides insight on market research data that was previously not available to pharmaceutical companies and health organizations.
In many emerging markets the key problems that healthcare usually faces are affordability, accessibility and adherence.
Connect Pharmacy helps address the key healthcare problems through sponsored discounts, ease of enrollment, and automated health education messages.
