AUSTIN, Texas — DocStation, a software company that works with health plans to mobilize pharmacists as front-line care providers, has raised a $3.1 million seed round.
The financing was led by 8VC, a prominent Silicon Valley venture capital firm now based in Austin, Texas. Additional participants include UnityPoint Health Ventures, Cartmell Ventures, Free Solo Ventures, Wanxiang Healthcare, Omega Pharmacy Group and Techstars.
DocStation was founded by Samm Anderegg, PharmD, and former InVision engineer Josh Matz. After completing residency training, Anderegg moved into healthcare administration and became frustrated with the underutilization of pharmacists as a clinical resource. He and Matz met in Austin and mapped out a plan to build a platform that empowers pharmacists as healthcare providers.
