Over the last three years Health Information has completed over 40 customer projects for 18 of the top 20 UK pharmaceutical companies.

Health Information’s mission is to enhance patients’ lives by enabling point of dispensing intervention. It has already supported millions of patients, and continues to pioneer new and innovative services, via its network of thousands of independent and hospital pharmacies.
