“Hoy product offerings are highly meaningful and well-timed, built on a commitment to answering the unmet health care needs of underserved populations, particularly for Hispanics, and in a way that overcomes both cultural and language barriers to accessing affordable healthcare,”says Roberto Dávila Ríos, president, 3Rios. “We are impressed by Hoy’s innovative approach to offering affordable care, Rx drugs, chronic condition management programs and telehealth/virtual care that will result in improved access to care, coupled with real savings for those who need it most.We are confident that Hoy will continue to expand its customer base, given its track record for engaging consumers from 14 states and four countries, as well as hospital/clinic and retail clients, in a relatively short timeframe.”
Following financing, Hoy will increase marketing support for HoyRx where, for the first time, consumers can purchase medications either online, or at any of Hoy’s growing list of physical retail points, and have them delivered to their family in Latin America within 24 hours.
