The Medicine Market
People often fear the cycle of treatment unless their insurance covers it. In fact, many people travel to other countries to get their treatment done because it is relatively cheaper. Medical tourism is catching up quickly all over the world.
In a world where everyone wants to earn more and spend less, medical tourism seems to have opened the gates for it. As people travel so much to get their diseases treated, another very interesting side of the pharmaceutical industry has recently developed.
On demand Pharmacy Delivery Apps
It isn’t a shocker that while every industry is shifting towards the on demand delivery model, the pharmacy industry to has picked up its pace. The potential of the medicine market purely from the financial standpoint is huge.
The fact that now there is an app like Uber medicine delivery opens a gamut of opportunities for pharma front-runners. These apps are shaping the way the influx of money can be regulated in a steady and seamless fashion.
How do such apps work?
These apps facilitate delivery of medicines. So, for the most part, they work like a normal taxi booking app except for the fact that the user can choose the medicines, add them to cart and buy them and someone will pick them up for you and deliver it to your home.
The User first downloads the app and registers on to it. Then just like an online shopping app, he can order the items and add them to cart. Once that is done, the app assigns a delivery driver to the particular order who picks it up from the pharmacy and delivers it to the address given by the user.
Why is it Beneficial?
Such apps make a lot of sense for the market because it is eventually a win-win situation for everyone. The User enjoys the ability to get the required medicine without having to go to the store, while the pharmacy stands to make money because more and more people will prefer to get medicines home delivered. Drivers also enjoy added income. What’s more, the app owner can register multiple pharmacies on the app which will ensure that more and more people use it. As app owner, he stands to make a commission every time an order is placed through the app.
How can one start this as a business?
There are two ways to begin an app-based business. You can either develop an entirely new app for medicine delivery from the ground up to be able to get all the features necessary, or you can buy a readymade app that can be launched immediately.
A quick search on the internet will show you many companies that are there who have developed such apps. You can g through them all and pick the one that makes the most sense to you. Please remember that developing an app just like developing medicines is a long and arduous affair. People may or may not be able to do something that they thought they could. This is why buying pre-made apps are the easiest way to go.
