Scruubs, an app that
will provide "Uber-like" on-demand, non-emergency health
and wellness services by doctors, nurses and other professionals, has
opened their startup round to global investors.
Atlanta, GA USA. Over
three hundred licensed medical and non-medical professionals have
signed up to begin taking house calls for Scruubs when it launches in
October. Doctors, nurses, lab technicians and others can be requested
to homes or offices to perform routine care, examinations and
clinical tests. Other available services include cleaning orderlies
and medical transportation drivers. Scruubs began taking applications
for the medical positions in July and surpassed their goal in two
weeks. The healthcare disruptor app has now opened a startup round
for accredited investors and potential business partners.
"We expected a huge
interest from medical professionals, but not as many applicants as we
received," says Lisa Lamb, Scruubs founder and chief operations
officer. "We are limiting the onboarding amount to two hundred
for the launch, and adding more as demand grows. There are several
primary care doctors in the major counties that want to participate
and we are really happy with the early support we've received."
Scruubs does not require
or accept health insurance. The amount per Scruubs visit by a
licensed medical professional is from $50 - $100USD, and medical
rides start at $1.50USD per mile. Users will be able to use a major
credit, debit card, third party payment services or cryptocurrency to pay for their visits and medical rides.
"Our goals are to
reach the unemployed and the uninsured in the midst of the healthcare
crisis," says Lamb. "We also wanted to add multiple, new
era payment options to make us attractive to millennials. Healthcare
shouldn't be limited to monthly premium debits from bank accounts."
Scruubs will provide
additional income to medical professionals who would prefer not to
work in hospitals or clinics. Scruubs professionals are not
employees, but trained, licensed, insured independent contractors.
Scruubs requires proof of license to practice, background checks and
drug screening of all professionals before they will be allowed to
use the application. Scruubs is the brainchild of a private
practicing nurses aide that has programmed the application to operate
similar to the popular ride-sharing model.
"I hated working in
hospitals and nursing homes under strict schedules and administrative
rules. Scruubs will allow doctors and nurses to provide care on their
own terms, and in the patient's best interests."
Scruubs has opened its
startup round to accredited investors and partners directly from its
official website, and the founder will address accredited investors
and potential partners in a pitch webinar on 506er.com later this
"We definitely want
to grow and make health and wellness services accessible without
having insurance," says Lamb. "Getting the right investors
and partners on board early will help us with our mission. We want
Scruubs to be an international brand."
