Curatio, a Vancouver-based healthcare-focused social networking app, has merged with Sydney, Australia-based RxMx. Pemba Capital Partners, an Australian private equity firm, is backing the merger. No financial terms were disclosed.

The newly combined companies will operate as RxPx and provide patient management software for life sciences companies.

RxPx is used in over 100 countries, available in 15 languages and has been designed specifically for the privacy, security and compliance needs of healthcare. RxMx was started by doctors for doctors to support physician workflows through automated processes that increase speed and access to therapy. Curatio was started by patients for patients as a social health prescription, enabling any healthcare organization to easily deliver private, personalized social support, education, daily coaching and adherence tracking.

“The need for a social health prescription is increasingly urgent and the level of physician burnout is a serious concern for the entire ecosystem.,” said RxPx CEO Lynda Brown-Ganzert, in a statement. “Any healthcare organization can use the RxPx solution, and brand it for their program, therapy, clinic or membership.”

Curatio’s Canadian venture capital investors included Rhino Ventures and Conexus Venture Capital Fund. In June 2020, the company raised an undisclosed Series A financing.
