Galen Medicines: Live Since 2011
15/03/2019: We celebrate 8 years online!
The most popular, comprehensive, up-to-date online reference for all matters regarding human pharmacology in Greece has been designed and developed since early 2010 and went live on 16th of March 2011.
Physicians, pharmacists, researchers, scientists and pharmaceutical industry executives find more than 70.000 entries of original content in Galinos.gr, including:
- Prescription and over-the-counter medicines, food supplements
- Indications, contraindications, adverse reactions per active substance
- Pricing, packaging, marketing authorisations, classifications
Galen Medicine's novelty lies into its underlying data representation: international coding standards (ICD-10, ATC, SNOMED-CT, etc) are being leveraged to represent knowledge in a terse, deeply linked structure. The knowledge base is exploited for offering state-of-the-art medication decision support such as medication recommendation and drug-to-drug and drug-to-disease interaction checking.
More than 680.000 unique users visit Galinos.gr every month. In 2011, when the portal went online, the average monthly pageviews were 440.000. Today, the website traffic is 7-8 times greater, reaching 3,3 millions pageviews per month. Below, a Google Analytics report provides an overview of the audience statistics for January 2019.
Trust and encouraging feedback from physicians, pharmacists, researchers and patients visiting Galinos.gr daily, boost us to work even harder and improve our offerings. New services are about to come.
