About the project
SwipeRx is a mobile digital platform that unifies pharmacy professionals from various sectors into a global platform. It allows pharmacy professionals to communicate with colleagues, to receive information regarding government policies and news, to learn about public health initiatives, to discover latest research opportunities, and to gain Continuing Professional Development (CPD) units.
Since launching in January 2017, SwipeRx has attracted over 60,000 users in Vietnam, Indonesia, the Philippines, Cambodia, Thailand, and Malaysia. Through partnerships with public sector organizations such as the World Health Organization – Western Pacific Region (WHO WPR), mClinica has been able to disseminate their content to a wider audience and directly target pharmacy professionals. Quickly informing large groups of professionals will accelerate policy implementation and strategies to drive measurable impact. mClinica plans to provide more value to SwipeRx users by increasing the variety of content on the mobile application. SwipeRx quickens the transmission and access of relevant information for academia, public health organizations, and other entities in the pharmacy field, which will educate and elevate their competencies as professionals thus improving patient health.

They want to solve this because they believe that if pharmacists can have a better access to information and education, they can better contribute in the improvement of public health.
They hope to provide value to pharmacy professionals ,in terms of improving their professional competencies, translating it to better delivery of quality patient care, without any cost or fee for these professionals.

About the sponsor
mClinica Health Solutions, Inc.
Across many developing countries, pharmacy professionals are fragmented. Pharmacists are essential to public health, as they interface with patients every day. Public health organizations such as governments, NGOs and academic institutions have difficulty in reaching pharmacy professionals and the patients they serve.
mClinica, through its mobile technology platform, allows for education, communication and information dissemination to pharmacy professionals at scale. Supported by public sector donors and investors, mClinica is a public health social enterprise focused on strengthening pharmacies and public health in Southeast Asia.
