SIRUM (Supporting Initiatives to Redistribute Unused Medicine) saves lives, time, and money by allowing health facilities, suppliers, and pharmacies to easily donate unused medicine to safety-net clinics rather than destroy it. Its simple online system enables closed, safe, and hassle-free peer-to-peer drug redistribution. Unlike traditional drug redistribution programs, which rely on many inefficient intermediary steps, SIRUM connects donor facilities and recipient clinics directly. Serving as a simple, cost-effective “Match.com” for unused medicine, SIRUM has the potential to significantly reduce the over $700 million worth of unused medicine going to waste in America’s health facilities each year—and help the millions of low-income Americans who cannot afford to fill the prescriptions they need to be healthy.
