Why This Theme?
According to the International Pharmaceutical Federation (FIP), “Trust is a central part of all human relationships and a fundamental element of social capital. Trust is also essential to health care: there is a significant association between trust in healthcare professionals and health outcomes for patients.”
Across diverse settings throughout the world, it is observed that when the patients have higher trust in the healthcare professionals, they show a better satisfaction of treatment, fewer symptoms, & experience improved health behaviors.

Where is the Word “Pharmacy” Generated?
Some of the oldest pharmaceutical records throw light on this that were found in Egypt from the year 2900 B.C. The “Papyrus Ebers”, a drug index collection of 800 prescriptions mentioning 700 drugs, that dates back to around 1500 B.C. The “Father of Pharmacy” is Aelius Galenius aka Galen of Pergamon a Greek physician, surgeon and philosopher in the Roman empire. His name is still associated with galenicals.
Being associated with the pharmaceutical industry for the last 29 years, we have been working towards digitizing the business processes of the pharmaceutical industry. Since the inception of Marg ERP, we realized that the pharmacy needs to be digitized so that the health care services could reach the patients before life. Also, computerizing the whole process eases out complex business processes.
To some extent, we have been successful in our journey. In India, we have been able to computerize 50% of pharmacies. Today our 1 Million users are using Marg for their billing, accounting, payments, inventory & delivery needs.
We’re on a mission to computerize 2.5 Lakh, new pharmacists, by 2023.
