Hyphens Pharma International, Singapore’s leading specialty pharmaceutical and consumer healthcare group, announced in January 2021 that its subsidiary, Pan-Malayan Pharmaceuticals, has been awarded with an e-pharmacy licence for its WellAway Pharmacy by the Health Sciences Authority (HSA).
Using Pan-Malayan Pharmaceuticals’ medical and logistical expertise, the e-pharmacy expects to work closely with medical clinics in Singapore to provide medication delivery services to residential homes.
Partly affected by the Covid-19 pandemic, telemedicine – the distribution of health-related services and information via telecommunication – has expanded globally. In support of this, an e-pharmacy would be able to deliver medication to residential homes, allowing patients to receive essential medication on time.
