While finding some off-the-shelf headache medicine is SO easy, finding a more uncommon kind of medicine by prescription can cause a headache on its own.
For some reason pharmacies in Indonesia are terribly under-stocked. If they don’t have what you’re looking for, then they can’t check if partner pharmacies have that stock and pre-ordering would be ridiculously long and unpredictable. There’s no online system reliable enough to estimate the distribution. For patients who need very specific drugs (maybe regularly), this is a life or death issue.

ProSehat is a local startup with the mission to solve the problem above. It’s basically an online marketplace for pharmaceutical needs. Patients may request their medicine online by including a photo of a doctor’s prescription. The request is matched up with a pharmacy that can provide the right drug. It is then delivered to the patient. Delivery costs are free for now, though ProSehat is thinking about monetizing this segment in the future.
