Cardinal Health acquired Mscripts, a Bengaluru-based provider of patient adherence and engagement solutions, in 2019. It has used this acquisition to expand its tech workforce in India.

Mscripts was founded in 2008 to provide a digital communication platform to help patients stay on track with their healthcare by delivering targeted messages via mobile and web applications that are directly linked to the pharmacy dispensing system.

The personalized support provided by mobile pharmacy reminders encourages patient adherence to prescription medications while also saving patients money. Involving patients in this experience benefits overall health management.

The NYSE-traded company serves nearly 90% of US hospitals, over 60,000 US pharmacies, and over 10,000 specialty physician offices and clinics.

It provides over 46,000 home healthcare products to over 3.4 million patients.
