Company Summary

PillJogger delivers retailers a turnkey mobile health solution, boosting pharmaceutical refills, clinic service volume (including vaccinations, screenings, etc) and front end sales. Unlike prosaic gamification models (typically points for performance redeemable for low value prizes), elements of both sweepstakes and lottery are incorporated with a critical difference – ongoing user participation is mandatory in order to win high value prizes.
