PillSorted, the personalised delivery pharmacy service, has raised $6m (approx. £4.8m) in seed funding. The company provides a personalised way of delivering medication to patients, while setting forth the blueprint for the future of digital pharmacy care.
The organisation’s unique technology delivers timely medication to the many thousands of patients currently struggling with “inefficient” home delivery services, upgrading the quality of care, cutting pharmacist workloads and creating NHS-wide efficiency improvements.
As predictive health becomes increasingly popular within the healthtech industry, PillSorted’s team of data scientists plan on using smart algorithms to “improve health outcomes and give better advice”, cutting the cost of future medications and prioritising the wellbeing of patients.
Founded in 2019 by pharmacist Zeinab Ardeshir, PillSorted aims to remove the admin burden of manually processing prescriptions and freeing up pharmacists to spend more time listening to their patients, explaining how medication works and delivering a holistic, personalised service.
By tapping into NHS integrations such as NHS Spine, PillSorted’s systematic feedback loop, which goes from pharmacies back to GPs, has potential to offer what the company describes as a better standard of care, while also improving efficiency levels for healthcare professionals.
Zeinab Ardeshir, CEO and co-founder of PillSorted, said: “The typical pharmacy experience has long been in need of an upgrade, and most pharmacists, despite being well trained and highly knowledgeable, are so bogged down by manual, repetitive tasks that they only have time to provide a basic, transactional service.
“Not only does our service make medication deliveries easier for patients, but our pharmacists are also able to review medication regularly and ensure patients are getting the best care possible. I want PillSorted to play a role in providing preventative healthcare for the community, which is so important given the NHS staff shortages we’re currently seeing.”
Pepe Agell, Partner at Pear VC, added: “PillSorted leverages technology to fulfil and deliver pharmacy products while creating personalised and human-focused experiences. It’s the blueprint for a future in which patients are consistently able to get the medicines they need at home before they need them.”
