SamaCare helps to eliminate the administrative barriers that limit patient access to life-changing therapies. Insurance-related administrative hassles for prescription drugs result in worse outcomes for patients, delayed therapy, and over $100B of administrative waste for the US healthcare system. Medical providers are forced to manage these workflows on stone-age technology (fax, calls, and snail mail).SamaCare has built a software platform to help practices streamline those administrative workflows and a two-sided business model that already reaches 25% of the prescribers of specialty drugs. As a VC-funded company, we are now building a team to help us scale so that every patient gets access to the right treatment at the right time.
