WhereToMED is a community-powered medicine platform that leverages technology and data to create digital services that improve access to good quality medicine and healthcare services in developing countries.

Primarily we crowd-source prescription drug and public health data from the community through surveys and submission of new prescribed medicine. In return, members earn money back for contributing data which can be transferred as mobile money or used for discounts on future purchases of medicine.

The data crowd-sourced from the community is used to create digital services, of which our main product will be a medicine comparison service to improve how patients find affordable good quality medicine from their local licensed dispensers to a way that is safer, faster and more rewarding. This service will enable users to save time and money, and reduces the risk of encountering counterfeit drugs by allowing them to check the price, availability, as well key information about their me...

The data crowd-sourced from the community is used to create digital services, of which our main product will be a medicine comparison service to improve how patients find affordable good quality medicine from their local licensed dispensers to a way that is safer, faster and more rewarding. This service will enable users to save time and money, and reduces the risk of encountering counterfeit drugs by allowing them to check the price, availability, as well key information about their medicine in advance.

In addition, the platform allows community members to keep track of their medical treatment with a personalised medicine log to improve adherence to treatment and communication of medical history with healthcare services.

Lastly, WhereToMED is about access to information, and a significant part of that is promoting patient education. The platform will provide patient-friendly prescription drug information, as well as local public health insights and information on common diseases.

The value propositions described above are available to community members for free. WhereToMED then leverages its vast community and data generating capability to pharmacies who will create profiles of their store on the platform, and through a paid subscription will benefit from search trend data, wider patient reach, and increased public trust and brand awareness, ultimately leading to increased revenue and better quality of service. Later on, we will be able to leverage big data insights to pharmaceutical companies, NGO’s and government organisations who share our mission.
