SnapRx is a platform that seamlessly generates real-time health data from prescriptions.
SnapRx helps health ministries digitize their national health surveillance and information systems. Pharmacists use the SnapRx mobile app to take a photo of their patients’ prescriptions. The app then uses artificial intelligence to digitize the information, which is sent in real time to a cloud database.
Ministries of Health can create national health information systems in a matter of months using SnapRx. The platform seamlessly generates health data from prescriptions in real time. This data can be used for health surveillance, supply chain monitoring, and even to predict epidemics. Governments can also use the app to send recall notifications and other emergency notifications directly to pharmacists’ phones.

Case Study: the philippines Electronic Drug Safety System (eDSS)
SnapRx has been customized for the Philippines FDA and white-labeled the Electronic Drug Safety System (eDSS). On June 27, 2018, the FDA signed the circular “Guidelines for the Use of the Electronic Drug Safety System (eDSS)” mandating the use of the eDSS every time a prescription is filled at every pharmacy in the country replacing paper logbooks required under 1969 Philippine Pharmacy Act.
The eDSS reduces the time pharmacists spend recording their prescriptions. It also allows the FDA to monitor pharmacies, providing greater levels of supply chain visibility and security while providing national health datasets that have never existed before. The eDSS will generate a real time data set of about 23 million prescriptions per month across the Philippines – a big data project of unprecedented scale set in an emerging market.
