Numan appoints Titan to drive efficiencies
Growing online male health clinic Numan has become the tenth large business this year to deploy cutting-edge software Titan, as the Bristol-based health tech continues its pharmacy revolution.
Numan, which was founded in 2019 and already provides medication for 175,000 patients via its Cardiff-based fulfilment operation, has signed up with Titan Enterprise from Invatech Health. The Titan software is expected to deliver 20 per cent efficiency savings, supporting Numan’s ambitious growth plans with improved safety and scalability in processing medications.
And in a further boost for Titan, the partnership with Numan comes alongside 100 new contracts with community pharmacies around the UK, sealed at the Pharmacy Show in Birmingham last month, for the end-to-end patient medication record (PMR) system called Titan Professional.
Numan launched in February 2019 with the stated aim of helping men take action when it comes to their health and wellbeing. The company provides regulated treatment options for the most common male health concerns, with a team of clinicians who can create personalised treatment plans online.
Andrew Caple, managing director of Numan, said: “Our findings show that three quarters of men will not visit a doctor when they have a health concern, and we therefore recognise that the online market provides a great opportunity to tackle these problems.
“As expected, we are experiencing significant growth and we needed fulfilment software which could support our current operations and future ambitions.
“We’re therefore delighted to have Titan on board and are already impressed by the impact it is having. With the increase in efficiency and safety, it’s the perfect partner for the next stage in our growth.”
Titan is a cutting edge Patient Medication Record (PMR) system created by Invatech Health which in late 2019, became the first PMR to be given NHS accreditation in more than a decade. It is an entirely new, innovative, cloud-based solution that manages end-to-end workflow within pharmacies, releasing valuable pharmacist time and giving control back to the business. Crucially, Titan Enterprise is designed to allow large scale operations to connect their internal systems and processes into the dispensing workflow to create new efficiencies and grow at scale.
The brainchild of former community pharmacist turned tech pioneer Tariq Muhammad, Titan is now making waves among innovative sector start-ups which are using automation, apps and robotics to change the way medication is delivered to patients.
Earlier this year, Invatech Health announced a further £950,000 loan from Innovate UK, under a programme to support game-changing innovations in the UK’s SME community. Mr Muhammad, who is CEO of Invatech Health, said: “We’re delighted with the progress of our business in 2021, as we continue to make waves across our two key sectors – innovative online businesses and community pharmacy.
“Both Numan and ourselves are at the forefront of tech innovation in the pharmacy sector, so this new relationship is a natural partnership.
“We look forward to supporting their growth and playing our part in helping men to receive the medication they need to treat a variety of health conditions.
“Indeed it’s extremely satisfying to see Titan helping change the healthcare sector in a number of ways. Among our community pharmacy customers, efficiency savings are freeing up time to help them refocus their efforts, away from back office tasks and out front with patient care. That can only be a good thing for their businesses and for the wider NHS.
“Meanwhile our Enterprise clients are revolutionising the way that patients can access medications online, with increased safety. So it’s been a good year for everyone at Invatech Health and we look forward to continuing the pharmacy revolution in 2022.”
