Pfizer India is leading the race in making state-of-the-art healthcare more accessible, with innovative drugs and treatments at the forefront. In line with this Pfizer has launched the ‘Pfizer PAP India’—a mobile application designed to ease and fast track enrolment to Pfizer's Patient Access Programs (PAP). At present Pfizer runs over 10 programs supporting patients with Pfizer treatments. This mobile application is an extension of Pfizer’s endeavour to amalgamate innovation in healthcare.
The ‘Pfizer PAP India’ mobile application is now available on both iOS and Android platforms. The application has been carefully designed to support patients who would like to be a part of Pfizer's Patient Access Program. This program offers eligible patients therapy assistance, based on a valid prescription by the treating physician and the submission of other required documents by the patient. Once registered on it, the app offers them a one-stop solution to elevate their treatment journey, at the touch of a button.
Using the application is simple, patients can enrol in the program by uploading the required documents on the portal. The app is easy to navigate, enables hassle-free documentation, facilitates easy fast-track enrolment and is safe for all our users.
Commenting on the launch of this app, Satyen Amin, Director- Commercial Channel and Market Access, Pfizer India said “Patients are at the heart of what we do! Improving access to our medicines via PAPs and providing information and support services ecosystem to help patients follow through in their treatment journey is our goal.”
Speaking about the launch, Dr Rahul Bhargava (Director & HOD - Department of Hematology & BMT Fortis hospital Gurgaon) said, "We believe that access to medicines and medication adherence determines treatment effectiveness. These are some of the most useful interventions for improving health outcomes. However, this is possible only through regular patient monitoring and access to innovative medicines. Through PAP app, patients can now seamlessly navigate their health journey on a single platform where they are enrolled. We are certain that this endeavour will benefit the healthcare ecosystem as well as the patients.”
