No health facility wants to see resources go to waste. Yet, every year, California facilities spend valuable time and money destroying $100 million worth of unused prescription medicine.
As truckloads of unused medication head for incineration, one in four working-age Americans is skipping the prescription medication he or she needs to be healthy simply because it’s too expensive. Now, for the first time, health facilities can donate medication rather than destroy it. SIRUM’s simple technology platform quickly and easily redistributes donors’ surplus medication to the clinics serving those who need it most.
SIRUM saves lives by saving unused medicine and delivering it to where it can do the greatest good. Since its founding at Stanford University in 2009, SIRUM has helped redistribute more than $1.5 million worth of prescription medicine to Californians in need.
SIRUM reduces pharmaceutical waste, helps health facilities save money, and enables low-income patients to get access to the medicines they need.
