Strong Room

Health Technology

Powering a secure digital gateway to quickly and safely access specialised treatment plans for patients.

Founded by Max Mito, Christopher Durre, and Kieran Start, Strong Room offers a secure digital gateway to quickly and safely access specialised treatment plans for patients, with the aim of reducing adverse drug events.

Adverse drug outcomes currently cost Australia’s healthcare system 1.2 billion a year, with causes including misidentification of patients, incorrect drug treatment, as well as complex administration requirements resulting in 10% of hospital admissions.

The Strong Room team have developed a medication management platform that instantly and securely matches patients with their complex drug treatments, optimising workflow and increasing patient quality of care.

Since launching their pilot last year, 50 pharmacies have come onboard. To support their growth the team has raised a pre-seed round of $350K from angel investors including key players within the pharmacy sector.
