Fullscript acts as a virtual dispensary for alternative medical professionals such as doctors and other healthcare practitioners who provide patients with supplements.

Medical professionals can sign up for a free account and use marketplace software provided by Fullscript to link directly to their healthcare institution or office electronic health record (EHR) system. With an account, alternative healthcare professionals can order supplements online for patients and use various digital tools to prescribe supplements directly from their health records software, create patient treatment plans, track how and when patients are using the prescribed supplements (a process in healthcare known as patient adherence) and order and track refills, among other tasks.

Fullscript currently has about 17,000 healthcare practitioners using its platform, the company says.
