James Lott: Using pharmacies to revolutionize healthcare

James Lott is the founder and CEO of Script Health — an early-stage health-tech startup empowering pharmacies to revolutionize healthcare in the US.

About This Episode:

James talked to us about multiple ways in which pharmacies can provide access to healthcare in remote areas and communities that don’t have hospitals or proper medical facilities, frequently preventing poor outcomes and even saving lives. A pharmacist himself, James discusses how he got the idea for Script Health, and what made him decide to quit his day job and focus on building a startup in a difficult and tightly regulated space like medicine.



James shares some news regarding innovation happening in the digital health industry, and how the pandemic has accelerated the adoption of virtual care and highlighted the need for a change in healthcare policies and regulations.



James also tells the story of how his company started as an online platform that allowed people to purchase a lifesaving opioid antidote Noloxone without a prescription. Eventually they had to pivot due to unsustainable business model and co-founder disputes, ultimately focusing on empowering pharmacies to provide more services.



James and Greg also discuss startup accelerators, particularly Techstars and Y Combinator, and the specific cases in which they can be helpful to founders. James sums up his advice to other entrepreneurs: being passionate about what you’re working on is a guarantee of longevity.
