The Health Sqyre Vision
Our vision is that buying medical supplies online will be as easy as buying a pair of shoes online.
Over the last decade, we’ve seen an aging population, an increase in online retail sales, and patients increasingly turning to the internet for more convenient and less expensive options. These trends are set to accelerate now that there are healthcare API platforms that make it possible to integrate directly with payers to access patient coverage data.
Imagine if you could know exactly what cost you owe and what your insurance will cover for a particular medical supply with just a click of a button… and then be able to buy it (Online!). We’ll actually be able to deliver this as soon as we finish building our proprietary rules engine that performs various algorithmic calculations and API calls.
Once this is possible, our addressable market suddenly opens up from only serving CPAP therapy users to include users of all durable medical equipment (“DME”).
Eventually, we can eliminate opaque pricing and the inability to purchase medical supplies online using insurance. And that’s a vision we believe is worth fighting for.
