Born in the Heart of the Minnesota Medical Valley

InstyMeds: Patient Focus + Minnesota Ingenuity

InstyMeds is located in a global epicenter of health innovation and care – Minnesota’s medical valley. The area is home to over 1,000 healthcare companies employing hundreds of thousands of people who impact the lives of billions worldwide.

Our story starts in 1999 with a frustrated caretaker for a patient.  The caretaker was Dr. Ken Rosenblum who worked as an Emergency Room physician in Minneapolis.  After taking his own child to an ER at night, Dr. Rosenblum needed to fill a prescription for amoxicillin, a common antibiotic.

Driving around in the middle of the night looking for a pharmacy, he thought, “Why should patients have to work so hard to get their medications?”

Dr. Rosenblum partnered with engineers, physicians and pharmacists to build what is now known as InstyMeds – the world’s most advanced, most tested, and safest automated dispensing system at the point of care.

We dispensed our first prescription to a patient in Minnesota in 2001. Since then InstyMeds has dispensed millions of prescriptions on three continents as we expand access to medications by eliminating patient jobs and help patients feel better faster!
