We believe that helping them is more than just a good idea: it’s how we honor our common humanity.
A single medication mistake can cause a patient to suffer needlessly. In some cases, it can kill.
Every day, thousands of patients across the country and around the world take their medications at the wrong time, in the wrong amounts, in doubled doses, or not at all. These human oversights have a cost. In the US alone, 125,000 people die every year due to preventable medication mistakes. They cause a health emergency every forty-five seconds. The US healthcare system spends $300 billion per year addressing the crisis. We’re here to solve this problem. Our technology fosters patient well-being and saves lives—it helps patients manage their medications and provides visibility into their daily behavior. We use this data, gathered from the actions of millions of patients, to generate insights that promote collaboration and smart decision making at every level of the healthcare industry. This leads to better outcomes for all.
In 2012, brothers Omri and Rotem Shor faced a family health emergency. Due to a miscommunication about his medication schedule, their father, a diabetic, accidentally took an extra dose of insulin. It was a mistake which put his life in grave danger. The brothers soon discovered that his experience was far from uncommon. Omri and Rotem realized that such mistakes in medication management have created a global health crisis in need of a solution. They decided to build that solution. Combining their entrepreneurial skills, the brothers created Medisafe to help patients like their father manage complex prescription schedules, and to provide information and promote collaboration throughout the healthcare industry.
In just a few short years, Medisafe has grown from a small startup to a large insights company with 5 million registered users worldwide, 250,000 app store reviews with an average 4.7/5 star rating, and over 2 billion doses managed through our platform.
We continue to grow and evolve as we strive to make healthcare safer and more effective for all.
