What is MedAdvisor and Adheris?
MedAdvisor is a software systems developer focused on the medical industry. Its app connects to pharmacy dispensing systems to automatically retrieve medication records. It also drives an information reminder system to ensure correct medication use for its patients.
Just over a week ago, the MedAdvisor announced that it had purchased the United States-based Adheris Health. This acquisition was made to leverage on Adheris’ customer base and bring digital health programs to its network. Adheris’ network extends to 25,000 pharmacies, and potentially gives MedAdvisor access to a massive US market with an addressable network of 180 million patients.
At the time the MedAdvisor chief executive Robert Read says the purchase was a “transformational” deal for the company.
