The sold-out event was attended by over 300 business leaders and investment groups . Dr. Garrett was among six corporate executives invited to present.
“It was a great opportunity to present our platform to experts that could provide feedback on our product and services from multi-industry perspectives,” said Sandra S. Garrett, CEO MediMergent, LLC. “Our NMSOAP initiative enrolls patients at point of service, and creates a communication loop among patients, physicians and pharmacists that help track early warning signals related to medications. The majority of the audience is/was a patient and recognized how important it is for patients to know potential adverse effects of their medication and to be able to intervene before costly and dangerous events occur.”
