New AI-based platform streamlines drug prescription, minimizes errors
An innovative healthcare platform has been developed and trialed in the UK to enhance the efficiency of drug prescriptions and possibly reduce medical errors.
The Pharmeum platform contains patients’ medical data and allows patients to instantly grant access to their data to any healthcare provider.
Pharmeum can be accessed through a dedicated mobile phone application. An artificial intelligence (AI) software is incorporated into the system to dynamically analyze medical data and minimize medical errors.
“The platform also allows users to send and receive digital prescriptions. Patients are given complete control over their prescriptions because Pharmeum lists all nearby pharmacies and prices of the prescribed medicines. This price transparency will improve the affordability of medicines for patients,” explained Zain Rana, CEO of Pharmeum. “The system is empowered by the Blockchain technology to ensure secure transfer as well as use of prescriptions and medical data.”
“The app will be free for patients. Revenue will be generated by taking a 0.5–1.0 percent commission from pharmacies on each sale through the platform,” he explained.
“We hope that Pharmeum can help patients monetize their medical data securely, help clinicians minimize errors, and help pharmacies improve productivity and revenue,” concluded Rana.
