“The Australian market continues to grow strongly, and we have increased our network and revenue per pharmacy,” said Robert Read, CEO and Managing Director of MedAdvisor.

“The financial year 2019 also saw us take the decision to invest capital in developing scalable US-ready technology and infrastructure to open the US market. We now have landmark deals in three significant markets being the US, Asia and most recently the UK.

“The revenue opportunity over the medium term is significant and the quality of partners and customers is testament to the fact we have built something that helps solve a global problem in a unique way,” said Mr Read.

“Through these global partnerships we will be able to help tens of millions of patients better manage their medication and therefore have better health outcomes.”
