Health QR, a Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada-based digital medication management startup, raised $250k in funding.
Early stage venture capital firm Innovacorp made the investment.
The company will use the funds to bring its product to market.
Led by Patricia Ryan, president and CEO, Health QR is developing a technology platform that gives prescription customers secure access to their pharmacy information, letting them manage their medications. The solution provides an interactive mobile app that allows users to view active prescriptions, order refills online, receive reminders when refills are due and be alerted when a prescription is about to expire.
The company is also developing new features that will allow prescription customers to be reminded when to take their medication and track their medication adherence on a dashboard. While the system currently interfaces with Kroll Computer Systems’ pharmacy software platform, which supports about half of Canadian pharmacies and houses all of the sensitive customer prescription information, Health QR is developing the agnostic solution to integrate with other pharmacy software programs including McKesson’s PharmaClik Rx.
The company also has operations in Hamilton, Ontario.
