WHAT IT DOES

Foundation Health focuses on redefining consumer healthcare experiences by empowering clients to develop and launch digital-first pharmacy and telemedicine solutions at scale.

With this funding, we are equipped to accelerate product development, onboard customers currently on our waitlist and continue engaging with new customers to ensure we’re delivering precisely what the market needs. We are thrilled by the initial demand for our products and anticipate reaching profitability in approximately 18 months,” Umar Afridi, Foundation Health founder and CEO, said in a statement.
