Prices continue to rain for PharmaSwap. This week the marketplace for medicines The European Healthcare Procurement Awards 2022 won in the sustainability category. “This international recognition is a huge incentive to continue rolling out our model in other countries,” said PharmaSwap.
Medication waste is an international problem. “Our Dutch initiative is an inspiring best practice for other countries,” PharmaSwap writes on LinkedIn.
Cross the border
The platform is awarded for the third year in a row. For example, the medicinal marketplace won the KNMP Healthcare Innovation Award in 2020 and the Samen Voorop Award from VGZ in June 2022. The latter heralded a new phase for PharmaSwap. “The award is an opening to lobby health insurers for sustainable contracts,” says pharmacist and co-founder Jelmer Faber. In addition, PharmaSwap crosses the border. “We are currently in talks with a German party. Foreign pharmacists can take up the challenge and use the platform.” The latest award to be won, The European Healthcare Procurement Awards 2022, will contribute to that mission.
