Medpharma is a mobile and web application which digitizes healthcare through an aggregation of Providers (Hospitals, Pharmacies and Laboratories), drugs (Over the Counter drugs, prescriptions and medical devices), Specialists (Doctors and Pharmacists) and the patient.
Medpharma delivers your product and service at your convenience, allows patients to rate
Medical practitioners and the service provider based on how well they perform and digitizes an encrypted version of your medical records for easier and convenient use when needed.
Medpharma’s key objectives are:
- To gradually close the patient-doctor ratio.
- Provide patients with relatively competitive pricing of drugs.
- Deploy telemedicine as a way of serving the patient.
- Deliver drugs and healthcare at the point of need of the patient.
PATIENT - DOCTOR RATIO
The World Health Organization recommend that, the Doctor-Patient Ratio should be at 1: 600. However, in Africa is believed to have as high as 1:50,000 patients. Due to this, hospitals and clinics get unusually clogged on a daily basis, limiting emergency patient’s quality access to medical practitioners. Medpharma seeks to bridge that gap.
MEDPHARMA SOLVES THE PROBLEM OF DRUGS
We offer high quality drugs which are provided by distributors who comply with regulatory
standards and provide safe products. Partner pharmacies will have their stocks managed at the back office so that, patients request through the MEDPHARMA app or web protocol can be served either by directing them to buy or delivering it to them. Our mark-up price is lower, thereby providing real cost savings to the patient.
MEDPHARMA SOLVES THE PROBLEM OF CONSULTATION

Patients who have subscribed to Medpharma enjoy low cost of medical consultation and get access to medical practitioners through tele – medicine and specialized services.
EASY ACCESS TO MEDICAL RECORDS
