Sempre Health uses discounts to encourage timely prescription refills | MobiHealthNews

Sempre Health, a San Francisco-based company that uses monetary incentives to encourage timely prescription refills, officially launched last week with $2.5 million in funding from Social Capital Partnership, quietly raised last year.

Using SMS, Sempre works with pharmacy benefit managers to inform patients about discounts on their prescriptions — and then those discounts change to incentivize healthy behaviors.

“What we’ve developed is an end-to-end dynamic pricing solution,” CEO Anurati Mathur told MobiHealthNews. “… For example, a patient might get a text that says ‘if you pick up your prescription this week you pay just $20, if you wait until next week it’ll go back up to $30.’ And then we have a commercial relationship with the pharmacy that allows them to make sure that price is available for that patient so it ends up being very seamless.”
