Anyone who has watched his GP thumb through an outdated reference manual of medicines will see the point of the Virtual Health Network. The company was set up by Steve Mott and Vaughan Tompkins in 1998 to give online information on prescription medicines. Customers such as GlaxoSmithKline and AstraZeneca have helped drive up sales 110% a year, from £250,000 in 1998 to £1.1m in 2000.
