Our mission

 

The current U.S. system for prescription medication is fundamentally broken. But it doesn’t have to be. We believe the “quadruple aim” of delivering better health, great experiences for patients and providers, while significantly reducing costs is well within reach. But it’s not going to happen by optimizing the existing system.  

Prescryptive Health is bringing together the best in technology and healthcare leadership to fundamentally redefine the prescription benefit model to help employers, health plans, providers, pharmacies and pharmaceutical companies realize this vision.
