Founder & CEO

Leonora has more than 20 years’ experience working in the pharmacy sector, including working as chief pharmacist at Unicare and as a governance and development consultant for the Pharmaceutical Society of Ireland. She is the first Irish woman to be selected for EY’s year-long Entrepreneurial Winning Women leadership programme and has previously won the Cartier Women’s Initiative Award for Europe.

“We have become a go-to place for data. Prior to our platform being developed, a lot of knowledge gained about errors would often stay locked within individual pharmacies. A doctor might learn from a mistake, as might a pharmacist, but it normally wouldn’t go beyond this. Now, though, healthcare professionals have a way to share information and better monitor risks in a way that also greatly improves transparency.

We differ because we are professionally led. Pharmapod is developed by pharmacists for pharmacists."

Pharmapod is developed by pharmacists for healthcare professionals.

The Pharmapod Solution is a smart, intuitive and profession-specific platform designed to facilitate effective compliance with pharmacy legislation and complement the workflow within the pharmacy, reducing the risk of litigation through error prevention.

It enables pharmacists to systematically record medication-related incidents and risks in practice and carry out effective root-cause analysis. The system analyses the collated data and disseminates the learning back to the profession and to key stakeholders internationally, preventing recurrence of patient harm.

All data is collected anonymously and securely and is presented back in an aggregated fashion.

Pharmapod’s in-depth domain knowledge and pharmacy expertise
sets it apart in the provision of software and business solutions for the pharmacy profession.

Having experience of Community, Hospital and International pharmacy practice, our professionally led team brings a level of reassurance and added value to our clients, ensuring that individual needs are met efficiently and to the highest standards.
