Our partnership with AP-HP (Paris Public Hospitals) and Sorbonne Université

« Synapse Medicine has a dynamic, and reliable team with whom we have been able to develop a digital, user-oriented medicines reconciliation tool.

When doing medicines reconciliation, the whole process of entering and interpreting the patient’s treatments often takes a long time. This is usually done on paper or in Excel spreadsheets, which can lead to errors. Our partnership with Synapse Medicine has allowed us to change the way we think about medicines reconciliation: it is reassuring, it makes routine clinical pharmacy activities much easier and faster. »
