Nowadays, online pharmacy is synonymous with convenience.
Imagine you’re a stay-at-home mother having to juggle the needs of 3 kids, all of whom require regular medication for chronic conditions such as eczema (very common in kids!). On top of doing the daily household chores, making sure that meals are prepped, and watching over the kids’ homework schedules, it would be virtually impossible to make a supply run to the pharmacy while leaving the children at home.
Thank God for telehealth — the new frontier in healthcare. But there are still obvious limitations: telehealth may be convenient, but it is not cheap. And what if you just wanted a monthly stock-up of your child’s regular eczema cream? Wouldn’t you have to pay exorbitant fees to consult the doctor every month just so you can get your prescription delivered to your doorstep?
The answer is an online pharmacy
By hitting the current pain points of today’s healthcare consumers, GainHealth, a Singapore-based online pharmacy and telehealth startup, endeavours to make healthcare more accessible and affordable through its direct-to-consumer platform that operates on a unique vertical integration business model. What this means is that GainHealth not only allows consumers to purchase OTC products online, it also displaces the middlemen in product distribution, resulting in products that are 10-15% cheaper than those sold in physical retail pharmacies.
More than that, GainHealth offers exclusive access to partner teleconsultations as a member-only benefit. Essentially, you’d just have to spend $58 on your regular products (which is money you’d be spending anyway) to unlock access to GainHealth’s slew of GP services — virtual consultations, specialised prescriptions and healthcare advice. This end-to-end healthcare approach streamlines the entire process, such that mothers and caretakers, who require a constant supply of effective child-friendly (for eczema and allergies) and women’s health (to combat weight gain, iron deficiency, menstrual issues) products, technically never need to step out of the house again.
GainHealth ensures the best scientifically-tested products for its customers by partnering with reputable healthcare brands like Ceradan, National Eczema Association and Sambucol. Additionally, its e-commerce-driven capabilities make it an online pharmacy with an amplified omnichannel presence on Lazada, Shopee, Foodpanda and Shopify. Besides products and services, GainHealth is built on the idea of empowering women — the common key decision-makers in households — through the platform’s free educational resources and curated content that help mothers make well-informed decisions regarding wellness and healthcare.
GainHealth is a Singapore-based direct-to-consumer healthcare startup with an aim to empower women as the primary decision-makers for health management within their families. As an online pharmacy, its products and services primarily focus on chronic clinical conditions involving children and women, including children’s sensitive skin issues such as eczema and allergies, and women’s health such as weight gain, thyroid disease, iron deficiency, menstrual issues, diabetes and other regular issues.
As parents, we only want products with good and natural ingredients for our kids. GainHealth partners with reputable brands in the healthcare industry to offer the best quality products to a burgeoning USD 10 million dollar market consisting of 30 million middle class working mothers in Southeast Asia.
