About us

We know how hard health is, and we are dedicated to make it easy and intuitive.

We at ScalaMed are aligned in our belief that the future of healthcare, requires us to engage and bring patients into the center of their journey. If we want to influence and support our patients or members, it just makes sense that we empower them with the right information at their fingertips to make health personalized for them.

We use our experience as patients (let’s face it we have all experienced how scary, lonely and painful bad health can be), care-givers (we have ageing parents, we look after our children, and we care for our friends – and we know how important it is to have the right information at our fingertips), doctors (our CEO is a trained physician and his in-depth understanding of the medical world means that every day, we apply the latest in medical knowledge, and the most important scientific breakthroughs, to keep patients healthy and safe), pharmacists (we make sure that we bring together professionals across the health landscape that understand medicines so patients feel so supported – like having a pharmacist in their pocket), and geeks (let’s be honest, building technology requires a certain amount of nerdiness – but hey we are proud to be making an impact on healthcare using code to change the future of medicine), to bring healthcare into the 21st century.

Life should be more about the important things in life – family, friends, community, love and nature. Yet when we get sick and need support, we believe healthcare can be friendly, personal, intuitive, and caring. We at ScalaMed are determined to support, help, educate, empower and care for those that need help.

We love feedback, and really want to hear from you. We want to know how we can help you make healthcare just that little more caring, and a whole lot easier

Our team:

Meet Dr Tal. A father of two crazy young boys – who make him laugh (and occasionally yell – sorry kids) every day. He has always believed that as a doctor he would help people every day. Yet the system in which he worked, which was created to serve patients, ended up becoming enslaved to administration, billing, and people turned into bed numbers. So wanting to do something different, he was determined to build a new way for medicines – a new future for prescriptions. ScalaMed.

Say Namaste to Piyush, our lead engineer.
