    We already publish information about our products on the Medicines Agency web site for our country, why shall we also publish on myHealthbox ?

    Medicine agencies are mainly concerned with making available the same information that is already printed in the packaging through their web site, documents are in pdf or word format and not optimized for readability on mobile devices. They lack support for any branding and multimedia types. Our platform combined with the new eLeaflet format on the other hand prioritize fruition of information on any device, branding support, support for multimedia types and digital services (social pages for example or electronic contact forms) and accessibility from search engines. Medicine agencies only provide information on medicines (prescription or otc), there are products falling in the herbal, veterinary, supplements, medical devices categories that are not present and lack a platform distributing quality information on the internet.

    We have implemented your eLeaflet solution for a product, can we now remove the paper leaflet from the packaging ?

    Depends on local regulations and the type of product. In most countries prescription and OTC products still require a paper leaflet to be provided inside the packaging, some types of medical devices can now remove the paper or at least reduce the amount of information provided (see next question), for other herbal, omeopatic or supplements products local regulations would apply. Please contact our Customer Service with your specific needs so that we can advise you on country-specific requirements and regulations.

    Most of our customers also have product information on their websites or available on one or more eCommerce sites that sell their products.

    standardization: we have standardized healthcare products information into a new digital format called eLeaflet (much like the iBook for books and magazines) to make sure we make the most of new multimedia technologies and digital services
    SEO: due to our size and reputation companies that put their product on myHealthbox see an increase in their search engine “visibility” (in most cases between 20 and 40 per cent increase)
    accessibility: over 30% of our accesses come from mobile devices, we make sure that users have the best possible experience on any device ease of update: most updates are carried out through the client reserved area (self-service mode) or by our customer service.
