Hi, I’m Rui and I’m the Co-Founder and Chief Clinical Officer of MedMe. I’m a pharmacist, and despite a $200k Doctor of Pharmacy degree, I still spend most of my time writing notes by hand and fielding phone calls for refills. When in fact, pharmacists can directly prescribe meds (like birth control), adjust diabetes/heart medications, give over 20 different vaccines/injections, and much more!
I was almost ready to leave my profession when I met my co-founders Purya & Nick. Purya was a health data scientist for the government and Nick a product engineer for the Tesla Roadster. They’d watched their own parents struggle with managing 10+ medications and were equally passionate about using pharmacists to provide more services for patients in the community.
Together, we identified the biggest problem to be existing pharmacy software built 20 years ago with the primary purpose to sell drugs. So, we built MedMe.
We are building software for an industry that has relied on paper and pen for a long time. This is why crafting, building, and constantly improving the end-to-end customer experience is an essential part of our company. It’s crucial that we listen deeply to the diverse needs of our pharmacies - located anywhere from dense urban jungles to northern remote communities - to design and build for their needs to ultimately provide more proactive and sustainable care for the patients in their communities.
Our Mission & Vision
Having raised $3.7M USD from M12 (Microsoft’s Venture Fund) and leading Canadian VCs, we're building the operating system for the pharmacies of the future, providing the technology infrastructure powering their transformation from traditional drug dispensaries into integrated healthcare hubs. Our platform provides the operations, integrations, and insights for pharmacies to offer clinical services, diagnostics, therapeutics, and digital health at scale to their communities. We serve a diverse range of community pharmacies, from large chains to independent pharmacies, and have almost 4,000 pharmacies and 30,000 pharmacists using our platform across Canada to serve millions of patients.
We are on a mission to revolutionize the healthcare industry through the pharmacy healthcare hub. We are now expanding our use cases to reach new types of pharmacy customers such as specialty and online pharmacies, as well as broadening the breadth of services and products available to pharmacies and their patients, and growing our network to new community pharmacies including in international markets such as the United States and Europe.
We're hiring an Engineering Manager to drive forward our technical vision and engineering principles as we scale across North America and into Europe.
