PharmaSecure

2013

Overview

PharmaSecure is a social enterprise founded in 2007 to address the problem of global drug counterfeiting. The enterprise features unique identification codes that can be printed or affixed onto every single unit of a medicine and verified by a consumer at the point of purchase via a text message or website confirmation. PharmaSecure also has communication modules that can be used by manufacturers to reach out to consumers who have purchased their medicines for the purpose of prescription refill notifications, information about new products, and reminders to take their medicines. Student intern Andrew Murphy conducted market research in India for a possible expansion of PharmaSecure mobile health services. He also worked on their online platform, psConnect, that will serve as an online space where product users, pharmaceutical manufacturers, and mHealth service providers come to exchange information and where users come to find mHealth services.
