Virtue Technologies

Virtue Technologies became an SCRA Member Company in 2022 and an SC Launch Inc. Portfolio Company in December when it received this $250,000 investment.

Virtue Technologies is a cloud-based, mobile-friendly software provider committed to solving the logistical challenges of the highly fragmented durable medical equipment and pharmacy industries. The solutions strive to reduce cost and improve the revenue cycle by improving staff efficiency, removing waste, increasing patient satisfaction, and providing unparalleled visibility to provider operations.

“In an environment of shrinking reimbursements, growing audit risks, and persistent demand for information, our technology streamlines and removes friction in provider operations and patient experience,” said Virtue Technologies CEO Gibran Ameer, PharmD. “Having SCRA and SC Launch Inc. as partners allows us to further execute our vision of taking an agnostic, interoperable approach to healthcare technology solutions.”

“Growing companies that are using technology to streamline tedious processes is one of our core goals. But, when technology can simultaneously improve patient care, it’s an even more beneficial endeavor,” said SCRA Executive Director Bob Quinn. “We’re proud to support Virtue Technologies and look forward to their continued growth.”

Virtue technologies recently presented its solutions at the National Association of Health-System Pharmacists Clinical Meeting and Exhibition in Las Vegas.
