WHAT’S THE BACK STORY?
TJ Parker is the pharmacist who came up with a solution to simplify the life of 30 million older American adults managing their medications at home. Growing up around his family’s pharmacy, TJ saw the struggles of patients who juggled complicated medication schedules and multiple trips to the pharmacy every week. As many family owned businesses do, the Parker pharmacy identified and catered to the needs of their long-term customers. The Parkers, with the help of TJ, created intuitive and stylish packaging technology and a seamless system for filling and delivering prescriptions that allows patients and their caregivers to feel in control. TJ saw the need to throw the antiquated pharmacy model out the window and create a better, more user-friendly experience. But what he didn’t throw out was personal service. He knew too, that customers wanted a system that could work seamlessly with their insurance providers. This reinvention led him to open a company named PillPack with a mission to re-invent the pharmacy.

WHAT I SAY:
My Mom uses a daily pill dispenser, but she has multiple tablets each day. She still has to remember which pill is which and what time she needs to take each medication. PillPack is a simple and easy way for my Mom (and anyone who is on multiple medications) to simplify their home health. I love this product.
