Colin Richman

Company Director, Rx-Info Ltd
While working as a pharmacist in the NHS, Colin Richman tried to find suitable software to help him and his colleagues follow best prescribing practice while also benchmarking prices to ensure they were delivering the most cost-effective use of medicines. No such system was available, so in 2003 Colin set up Rx-info and developed what became the Define software platform, which today is used by all acute and specialist NHS hospitals and Community and Mental Health Trusts in England, Scotland, and Northern Ireland. In 2019, Rx-info launched Exend on the Define platform, to give hospital pharmacists an early warning of shortages or stock depletion, and to provide a strategic view of stock to Regional Procurement and national NHS colleagues.
