BuyMed was founded in 2018 to simplify healthcare distribution in Vietnam and the rest of Southeast Asia, addressing the pharmaceutical market estimated at USD8 billion by 2020 . Doctors, pharmacists and hospitals in Vietnam waste a lot of time researching and sourcing for drugs in an inefficient system that ultimately leads to less time caring for patients. Thuocsi.vn, a business-to-business (B2B) marketplace, connects healthcare practices with a number of verified, licensed distributors, providing automatic matching of orders and end-to-end logistics. With an          
emphasis on transparency, the platform also provides real-time pricing, detailed information on active ingredients in the various products and a communications network used for important updates like product recalls.
