Skipta was founded by Dr. Theodore Search, Pharm.D., an infusion pharmacist. While preparing to treat a patient discharged into his care, Ted needed to consult with another infusion pharmacist regarding the appropriate dosage of a new chemotherapy product to administer.
Reluctant to tap into digital channels and social networks, due to the clinical nature of the conversation, an unmet need was identified: a place where like-minded verified healthcare professionals could communicate and collaborate on patient cases across the country.
Skipta’s first community, Pharmacist Society, was established for credentialed practitioners in 2009. Since then, the Skipta network has grown to comprise more than 30 specialized online medical communities, and continues to grow based on healthcare professional demand.
