Our story

Medication Intelligence for healthcare professionals

Synapse Medicine was created by Dr. Clement Goehrs, Dr. Louis Létinier, and Bruno Thiao-Layel in 2017 to support healthcare workers in reducing iatrogenic risks and the general public to take medicines safely.

¹ Elliott, R. A., Camacho, E., Jankovic, D., Sculpher, M. J., & Faria, R. (2021). Economic analysis of the prevalence and clinical and economic burden of medication error in England.BMJ quality & safety,30(2), 96–105. https://doi.org/10.1136/bmjqs-2019-010206

In the course of their medical practice, the three founders identified a major problem in the healthcare system related to medication errors. 

In the NHS in England, the number of medication errors is estimated at 200 million per year. Moreover, ADRs could be a contributory factor to between 1,700 and 22,303 deaths a year.¹

In light of all this, Synapse Medicine (a spin-off from the French National Institute of Health and Medical Research [Inserm] and Bordeaux University Hospital) developed its Medication Intelligence platform within two years of R&D, which is dedicated to improving medication use. Synapse Medicine's technology is therefore used by healthcare professionals such as doctors and pharmacists to help them in their daily work, but also by telemedicine companies, pharmacy groups, insurance companies, hospitals, and healthcare clinics.

Pharmacist

"Synapse Medicine’s platform is easy to use and effective, which is extremely helpful for us. Since we are a humanitarian aid organization, all of our prescriptions are written in paper form. We do not use software or have a pharmacist on hand who can check that there will be no drug interactions or other issues. The app acts as an important barrier to prevent iatrogenic effects. Synapse Medicine allows us to make patient care safer and to develop further training for prescribing physicians."

Co-founder and CEO

“We are committed to building a team based on the values with which we have founded Synapse Medicine: excellence and ethics on the one hand, but also solidarity, team spirit, and goodwill on the other.

In our opinion, they are what we need to be able to live up to our project’s ambitions: to make reliable medical information accessible to all.”
