SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 23, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- ScriptDash Pharmacy, a health-tech startup focused on building the modern pharmacy, today announced a partnership with Watsi, a nonprofit crowdfunding platform for healthcare, to fund life-saving medical procedures around the world.
"There's so much good Silicon Valley startups can do for the world. I love seeing ScriptDash and Watsi working together to save lives." - Justin Kan, Partner, Y Combinator
ScriptDash will give $20 to fund healthcare for a Watsi patient across the world each time a patient here in the US transfers their prescriptions to ScriptDash. Participants will be able to choose the individual Watsi patient to support thanks to an integration between the ScriptDash and Watsi platforms.
"We're thrilled to team up with Watsi to fund healthcare for in-need patients around the world. Here at ScriptDash, we work hard to create a pharmacy that allows patients to get world class medical care in the US, but it's important to remember that there are still millions of patients around the world that can't get access to any medical care. With the help of US patients, this holiday season we intend to impact the lives of patients around the world." - Vlad Blumen, COO and Co-Founder, ScriptDash
To transfer a prescription to ScriptDash, a patient simply signs up at ScriptDash.com/Watsi and answers a few simple questions. ScriptDash then contacts your old pharmacy and handles the transfer completely. Once these prescriptions are delivered, the patient receives a digital Watsi gift card with $20.
"Watsi and ScriptDash were both founded on the belief that everyone should have access to high-quality healthcare. It felt incredibly natural for us to partner with a company that shares in this passion and leverages technology to ensure patients get the care they deserve." - Grace Garey, CEO and Co-Founder, Watsi
Patients should visit ScriptDash.com/Watsi, transfer their prescription to ScriptDash, and choose which medical procedures to fund worldwide via Watsi.
