mPharma launches data-driven insights platform to empower African pharmacies in decision making

Facility Insights is now launched in more than 300 pharmacies across Ghana , Nigeria , Zambia , Kenya , Malawi , and Rwanda , and is expected to be fully operational in all mPharma-partner pharmacies in nine African countries in the coming three months .

mPharma , a pan-African healthcare technology company , has launched a new customer-centric product , ‘ Facility Insights ’, on its proprietary data management and pharmacy transformation tool , Bloom .

The product empowers pharmacy owners with tailored data-driven pharmacy insights to solve operational problems and make more informed pharmacy management decisions .
Dan Shoukimas , Chief Product Officer , mPharma , who helped in the engineering of the new feature , said : “ Pharmacies today suffer from two problems at opposite ends of a spectrum . Either they lack the data and analytics tools they need , are hungry to get it , but don ’ t have the tools or training necessary to get it , or they have a glut of data but cannot leverage it to make better decisions . Facility insights is a key step forward in solving these and many other gaps in the pharmacist ’ s data toolbelt . With key reporting in place , there will be plenty of opportunities for us to uncover actionable insights that help our pharmacists provide the best care possible .”
