SIRUM uses an online platform to identify the surplus medications at nursing homes and pharmacies, find a matching need, and then send the medications directly to safety net clinics that serve vulnerable populations. Our program, much like recycling, converts the medicine destruction process into a donation process. SIRUM sends boxes with prepaid shipping to donors. These facilities put their surplus medications into the box. SIRUM then makes sure that the right medicine goes directly to the right people. Our custom, patent-pending, cloud-based technology platform makes it easy to donate unused medicine by handling all donation logistics like supplies, tracking, and shipping and is designed from the ground up to efficiently scale.
