Pillpack is known to be the modern pharmacy that follows old-fashion ethics and standards. They are also known as the full packed pharmacy that provides simple yet great service to consumers. Their pharmacists have been through 6 years of training. They have the ability to answer all customers’ queries about medications, drug interactions, side effects and symptoms.
The pharmacy was co-founded by TJ Parker and Elliott Cohen. The two co-founders, Parker and Cohen met over MIT’s Hacking Medicine four years ago. Parker said that they have decided to start a company that would make it more accessible to customers.
They believe that robots can help them in spending more time with their clients. Their vision is to make managing medicines simple. They want to make sure that everybody is on the finest and traditional set of medications and it is easy to take those medicines appropriately.
PillPack is situated in Somerville, Massachusetts, a lively start-up community also near Formlabs, GreentownLabs, Grove, Echo Nest, TapJoy, Theravid and Brooklyn Boulders.
