PillPack

The World's Most Innovative Companies 2016Online pharmacy PillPack wants to change the way 32 million Americans who rely on five or more medications each day take their drugs. The Somerville, Massachusetts-based company eschews the traditional pharmacy model for a web-based service that aims to eliminate the dram--dropping off prescriptions, picking them up, sorting pills into boxes, calling for refills--that comes with treating chronic diseases. And the startup does it without charging more than the copay you would owe at the drugstore down your street. Users sign up for the free service, then PillPack transfers their prescriptions and sends them two-week's worth of meds, with daily doses placed in individual packs sorted by time of day and labeled with dosage info. Packages ship automatically, and refills are managed directly with physicians and insurance companies so patients never run out of the medications they need. The service is currently available across the United States, with the exception of Georgia, Hawaii, and Oklahoma. For those who don't have a slew of regular medications, PillPack can also package supplements, vitamins, and OTC drugs. And anyone can use its app to manage medication, which includes time- and location-based triggers to remind you to pop your pills.
