The biggest “disease” in healthcare is caused by medications. Patients get prescribed inappropriately, get too much, too little or no medicines at all. Patients get side effects, end up in hospital, and spend billions on medications when there are lower cost alternatives. This is a $528 Billion issue - and nearly completely preventable.  This is ScalaMed.

Our mission is bold: Stop any medication related hospitalization and rip billions of dollars out if the system. We want to enable a medication and healthcare management experience that is simple to use, yet holistic in depth and breadth of content. 

We are already nearly two years into our journey. Over the next 6 - 12 months, we will be focused on our beta product, building new features and micro-services, working closely with users to build something amazing that we can then scale across the USA and global markets.

ScalaMed launched in the USA in 2019 and is expanding to new sites, locations and to thousands of patients across the USA as the newest way for them to manage their medications seamlessly.  We are well funded, and we are excited for the next stage of our journey!
