Access to Medicine Programs

Pharmaceutical companies have a responsibility ensure that their life-saving products are available and affordable everywhere, including low-income countries. These programs come in all shapes and sizes, and so the information technology used to support must be equally versatile. This is where Clientelis can help, by designing and building out a solution specific to your needs, based on its flexible multi-channel platform.

Mix and Match

While there are programs that focus on just one of these objectives, in practice most programs overlap to some extent.

For example a program might address:

  • Pricing by offering one box of medication free after a chronic patient has adhered successfully for four months
  • Treatment adherence by sending SMS reminders a day or two before the next box of medicaiton is due
  • Good governance by using eVouchers to manage validation of free medication entitlements
  • Monitoring & evaluation by using tailored dashboards and data exports
  • Education by including an online e-learning component in the program
