A Washington company has completed $2.5 million of new investment funding.

SmartScripts will use this funding to commercialize its Regimen Management Pharmacy for people who need to manage daily medications. According to the company, “The Funding was led by the Rural Vitality Funds in partnership with Next Level Ventures, the Iowa Startup Accelerator, and additional Iowa-based investors.” SmartScripts uses a new approach to packaging of medications to help patients appropriately take their prescriptions. Each dose of a person’s medication is placed in a plastic pouch that states when that specific dosage should be taken, instead of one bottle containing all of the medication. The medications are then delivered directly to patients. The investment will be used to expand sales efforts and hire additional staff.
