For middle age and elderly patients, ‘mail order service’ for chronic medicines has been a boon in developed countries. Patients, payers and providers – they all prefer home delivery of chronic medicines because it is convenient, economical and, most of all, helps ensure compliance with the prescribed drug regimen by making authentic medicines available at the right time. mChemist Global Private Limited is modelled on the successful mail order services witnessed in the United States and seeks to replicate home delivery of chronic medicines in India via its Online Pharmacy, mChemist.com. It offers a complete range of pharmaceutical products and health supplements online, several of them on an exclusive basis. mChemist makes available health care products, that are authentic, affordable and convenient to purchase, to patients all over India. mChemist is a web portal, as well as an Android App, which is available for download at Google Play Store.
Prescription medicines can be ordered from mChemist.com after loading a valid prescription. Once the prescription is loaded, medicines can be ordered through the web portal or the mobile app conveniently and regularly, as long as the prescription remains valid. In addition, there is a vast range of OTC medicines, Herbal products, Orthopaedic aids, Vitamin supplements, Alternative medicines, Devices and other Health Care products that is available at mChemist.com. This unique online delivery process is designed and conceptualized by four Indian and International Pharma industry veterans and seasoned executives.
Rajiv Gulati, Former President of Global Pharmaceutical Business of Ranbaxy, Rajiv Ranjan, previously a Corporate Advisor with Apollo Hospitals and ex Director CVS-Caremark, USA, Gurvinder Pal Singh Baxi, well known Pharma supply chain entrepreneur and Navinder Singh Sethi, ex-Associate Director of Eli Lilly and Company. These four executive shave combined forces to lay the foundation of mChemist.com.
In addition to supplying both prescription medicines and non-prescription health care products in the same consignment, mChemist.com provides several useful services to the patients. These include dosage reminders, refill reminders, free diet counselling and a novel system to archive and retrieve patient’s prescription history. As a first in the Indian online Industry, mChemist.com has a team of dedicated pharmacists who read, transcribe and parse the uploaded prescriptions in real time and make medicines available for purchase by the patients and caregivers at any point of time thereafter. The store offers minimum discount of 15% on each purchase, and may introduce several promotional discounts in future for selected products.
Explaining this unique venture, Mr. Rajiv Gulati said, “This is a much needed solution for all the senior citizens and other consumers. Patients can now order medicines online, instead of hopping from one store to another in search of prescribed medicine and health products to overcome issues of non-availability, lack of authenticity, and high prices. With our cutting-edge technology catalysed solution, mchemist.com will enable patients to take care of their long-term medicine requirements and their overall healthcare better.”
The mChemist IT Team has also rolled out an innovative mobile app for the Google Android platform which has never-seen-before features. The Android app is available in the Google Play Store at http://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.smartech.app
“I think this is an effective platform to get your medications organized. The online store keeps user’s prescriptions and medical data secure, and provides refill alerts to notify the user of the patient’s next purchase of the medicines in keeping with the prescribed drug regimen. With mChemist, no one should ever have to miss a medicine dose! The payment gateway is safe and secured, and users can also avail of the convenient cash payment option. mChemist is a companion and empathises with the needs of the Indian consumers, especially the senior citizens, in their long-term health management needs”, commented Mr. Rajiv Ranjan.
mChemist.com is indeed a must needed solution in the fast changing world where one hardly gets time with their loved ones, so one less chore is quite welcome!
