Current situation

The current process of requesting medical supplies (medicines or materials) is very long and inefficient. An industry that needs to focus most of their time on helping their patients and as soon as possible, this is a problem that needs to be solved.

There are many parties and people involved in requesting a medical supply, such as a GP, a hospital, a pharmacy, an insurance company, a supplies company and sometimes even a transport company. These parties often need to request information from each other, which means there are high delays during the transmission of Information. Also there is a lack of global visibility of this data. It is also difficult to see who is the owner of the information, and track the changes that have been made over time.
