Lagos, Nigeria: Lifestores Healthcare pre-launches OGApharmacy, an online B2B pharmaceutical marketplace dedicated to making quality primary healthcare affordable & accessible to all, regardless of economic status. OGApharmacy currently serves over 70 affiliate pharmacies and approx. 200,000 end patients.
The marketplace, powered by Lifestores’ proprietary PharmIQ digital platform, offers group purchasing savings, loans, point-of-sales software and other digital health services.
“We started Lifestores to make quality healthcare the norm for all. At Lifestores, we see community pharmacies as the first port of call for primary healthcare, and work hand-in-hand with pharmacists to deliver health programs that serve all Nigerians. OGApharmacy is an opportunity to partner with trusted manufacturers and distributors, and pass on their discounts to pharmacies”, said Bryan Mezue, one of Lifestores’ co-founders.
OGApharmacy will be pre-launched in a virtual event on Zoom, 26th November, 2020. The pre-launch will be attended by key leaders from the Pharmaceutical Society of Nigeria (PSN) and the Association of Community Pharmacists of Nigeria (ACPN). ACPN has lent their support to Lifestores Healthcare with the aim of propagating OGApharmacy in community pharmacies in Lagos State.
“OGApharmacy is a pro-community pharmacy digital organization, offering the ‘BIG 4’ to help sustain growth in retail pharmacy space”, says Pharmacist Chinyere Chima, Senior Medical Advisor for OGApharmacy. “The retail business management software PharmIQ, Online Procurement platform, Soft Loan and access to Telemedicine are long over due to help community pharmacists in Nigeria”, she added.
