HealthPlus Limited, a pharmacy chain across West Africa, has launched an e-Pharmacy to give Nigerians instant access to a doctor or pharmacist.
Through the digitization of the Pharmacy and retail services, HealthPlus will now be transformed into a fully automated one-stop shop for pharmacy services, telemedicine services, laboratory services and, beauty consultation services.
From the website, Nigerians can now access all the pharmacy services and consult a doctor right from the comfort of their homes or a click from their mobile phones.
It will also include telemedicine and laboratory services in partnership with healthcare providers such as MeCure.
According to Chidi Okoro, Chief Transformation Officer of HealthPlus Nigeria Limited, “We noticed a significant surge in online Pharmacy orders, and many customers organically resort to purchasing medicines online and getting them delivered at home. It is now considered not just the more convenient option, but the safer option as well.”
Hence, the ePharmacy is in response to this shift and give Nigerians quicker access to the country’s best pharmaceutical care.
In explaining the specialist nature of the ePharmacy platform, Okoro remarked that “our intention is to become the leading point of care for medicine use review, prescriptions management and pharmacist consultation services, by providing seamless end to end user experience. We will also be constantly updating our content with helpful information, articles, blogs, newsletters and company announcements.”
Afsane Jetha, CEO of Alta Semper Capital LLP, HealthPlus’s private equity investment partner, believes that this is another great stride in improving healthcare delivery in Nigeria by providing access to high-quality yet affordable medical and beauty supplies through a new and innovative platform.
“We remain strongly committed to supporting the company strategically and financially in the years to come,” he assured.
