Who We Are

Datapharm was formed in 1977 to publish medicines information on behalf of the pharmaceutical industry. In 1999 we launched eMC which has become the UK’s most comprehensive, trusted and accessible source of information about medicines. We use the best digital platforms to improve the accessibility and usefulness of medicines information to our rapidly growing audience of over 50 million visitors per year.  Our customers and audiences trust us to deliver up-to-date, accurate and reliable medical information.

We partner with a wide range of professional and voluntary health organisations to improve health literacy and decision making about medicines for patients, carers, healthcare professionals and the pharmaceutical industry. These organisations include the NHS, MHRA, RNIB, PMCPA, EMA & ABPI.
