NEW YORK – Hero has raised $12 million in Series A funding and launched a new medication management platform. The automated in-home medication manager intuitively sorts and dispenses medication, has audible and digital reminders, automates refills and provides real-time and historical adherence data. “I knew there had to be a way to use technology to ease the daily burden of managing multiple medications and to provide reliable support to caregivers, while addressing some of the obstacles in place from our challenged healthcare system,” said Kal Vepuri, founder and CEO of Hero, in a statement. The Hero system includes: the Hero countertop device which automatically stores, dispenses and tracks medications; the Hero mobile app that creates and manages all medication regimens, sends notifications to caregivers regarding dispensed, skipped and additional doses, provides real-time access to drug information and tracks adherence over time; and the Hero fill service option, which prompts and manages the delivery of prescription medication, over-the-counter medication and supplements directly to the home.
