PATIENT-CENTRED

PHARMACY APP

Distributed IT system for a pharmacy chain in Poland that helps to facilitate communication between pharmacists and patients.

CHALLENGES THE PHARMACISTS FACE

What often happens in the pharmacy is that pharmacists do not have enough time to serve the patients. On the other hand patients are sometimes reluctant or simply forget to share all important information to provide quality pharmaceutical advice. The solution is a system composed of a patient mobile app and a pharmacist web app connected via cloud and integrated into the technical ecosystem of Polish pharmacies.

Let us walk you through the whole design process and the final result.

DR. MAX

In the Dr. Max franchise network there are about 550 Polish pharmacies. This makes Dr. Max one of the biggest pharmacy franchise networks in Poland. The whole international Dr. Max network operates in 2 000 pharmacies, employs 12 000 employees and serves 3,5M patients on a monthly basis.
