BusyMed, a South African healthtech start-up has raised funding from LionPride Investment Holdings, via its LionPride Agility Fund.
BusyMed’s platform connects consumers to pharmacies giving them access to online consultations, product and medication purchases with fast home delivery. BusyMed was founded on the belief that quality healthcare should be and can be accessible to everyone.
According to Mphati Jezile, BusyMed founder: “We’re excited about the opportunity this investment provides us. BusyMed aims at improving pharmacies’ engagement with their communities through technology and by doing so brings access to quality healthcare into everyone’s home.”
The investment from LionPride will be used for further platform development and the build out of the customer and revenue base.
The platform allows for pharmacies to provide real-time stock information, access performance data on best-selling items, manage inventory more effectively and leverage off existing pharmacy and 3rd party delivery solutions.
Furthermore, it facilitates and closes a gap where the end consumer may need to secure doctors consultations and provides an online prescription management service.
