A health tech company has officially set up on-site to serve as a digital pharmacy platform. The company’s goal is to simplify the process for customers.
capsule was launched in Houston to resolve pharmacy access issues and enable the discreet delivery of often stigmatized drugs. The company also prioritizes better communication than the usual pharmacy service.
“Capsule’s mission has always been to build a pharmacy that works for everyone,” said Eric Kinariwala, Capsule’s founder and CEO, in a press release. “We believe the core pharmacy experience has been fundamentally broken for the hundreds of millions of Americans who take medication on a regular basis.
Capsule’s customer-specific software prevents common problems with out-of-stock medicines, long waiting times and a lack of price transparency, and improves communication. Customers can sign up for the service – which includes same-day delivery across Harris County and parts of Chambers, Fort Bend, Galveston, and Montgomery Counties – and have their doctor send their prescriptions to Capsule. The company accepts all major insurance plans including Medicare and Medicaid.
