NeoHealth is focused on reducing the number of counterfeit drugs in the supply chain by utilizing our innovative pharmacy management software to keep track of inventory, to make sure the medications are coming from legitimate sources, and collecting patient health data to quickly determine the efficacy of medication
After conducting extensive research, we determined that the reason for the prevalence of counterfeit drugs in developing countries was due to an organizational issue with the health infrastructure. Through countless customer discovery interviews, we identified a need for pharmacy management software that was customized for locations that do not have large established pharmacy chains or a well developed health infrastructure.
