In the US alone, over 4 billion prescriptions are dispensed annually. 👩🏽⚕️
Yet, countless patients are left puzzled over medication instructions, missed dosages, and navigating potential side effects.
To find answers, many are left chasing callbacks from their busy doctors or even taking that trip back to the pharmacy. 🤦🏼
This week's company provides an AI platform that assists patients in managing and understanding their medications.
Pharmesol is an AI-driven software that enables healthcare providers to automate medication management.

🚫 Liability concerns: Any misinformation or drug misuse as a result of information shared by the platform could pose significant liability risks for pharmacies and their clinicians.
🕰️ Training the model: Thoroughly training the AI for the vast array of medications, conditions, and patient types may be both costly and time-intensive.
📚 Learning curve: As healthcare providers and patients adopt Pharmesol, there could be a learning phase — both for how to use the software and recognizing when hands-on intervention is necessary.
