👩🏻‍⚕️About Us

Welcome! - Rui, Nick, & Purya

We're building the OS for pharmacies of the future.

As selling drugs becomes automated & less profitable while healthcare costs skyrocket, we believe that pharmacies will transform from stores selling drugs to community health hubs — where anyone can get accessible, quality, and proactive care. And we want to be the technology backbone to accelerate this transformation.

Our web-based platform has already been used by 1.3M+ patients coast-to-coast, and we serve 1400+ pharmacies of all sizes. COVID-19 has sped-up legislations and created immediate demand for our platform, and we are currently helping people get their COVID-19 vaccine — safely and accessibly.

As a team of pharmacists, product designers, & health systems experts, our mission is to create the first, all-in-one cloud-based platform that empowers pharmacists to deliver clinical services***** at scale. If you're passionate about creating impact, building inclusive products that users love, and working with a mission-driven team, let's talk!

*These are services like giving vaccines (flu/covid), prescribing medications, point-of-care testing, and managing chronic diseases. Read more about pharmacists scope of practice here!

Technology

We're looking for a passionate individuals in relentless pursuit of making an impact to join us on our journey in building the best platform for pharmacists as they shift from their dispensing based roles, to one that provides virtual care to chronically ill patients. Without adequate software and new workflows, we may see an entire workforce of 40,000 highly-trained clinicians (in Canada alone) slowly be phased out by robots and automation.

In addition to facilitating the transition for pharmacists to a new healthcare role based on their current education/training, MedMe is also for the first time capturing clinical pharmacy data with plans to integrate with health peripheral data (such as those from Fitbits and Apple Watches). This provides tremendous insights on the treatment journey of patients outside of the hospital, and opens up massive AI opportunities for: preventative medicine, insurance costs/ROI, pharmacological effectiveness, and healthcare consumer behaviours.
