Mission: Fullscript is the easiest way for practitioners to recommend professional-grade supplements to their patients. It’s safe, simple, and free.
BREAKING NEWS: Natural Partners Fullscript announces $25M Series B financing. With the funding, Natural Partners Fullscript will focus on scaling its online technology platform, Fullscript™
Fullscript Founder Kyle Braatz named Canada's Top 40 under 40 for 2018.
With the dream of building her own small private practice right out of Naturopathic Medical school, Dr. Alanna Dyment was eager to get started on the logistics and planning involved in getting her business up and running.
When developing her business plan, Alanna discovered the challenges of building her own supplement dispensary – especially the huge investment required to stock inventory, and the on-going costs of replacing expired products. She also factored in the time it would take to set up accounts with suppliers and manage restocking and pricing her inventory. The effort and investment required to manage an in-house dispensary seemed wasteful and inefficient. She was determined to find a better way to dispense.
Alanna shared her problem with her husband, Brad Dyment, and his business partner and close friend, Kyle Braatz. Kyle and Brad had a history of building successful business and non-profit ventures together, and they were eager for a new challenge with a meaty business problem and a worthwhile cause. After an evening of brainstorming at their kitchen table, Alanna, Brad, and Kyle came up with a simple solution: a Direct to Patient Model that would change supplement dispensing forever.
With Alanna as their first medical advisor, Kyle and Brad set out to build a business that would connect suppliers, practitioners, and patients together in one place and platform.
In order to turn their idea into a full scale dispensing platform that could assist practitioners across North America, Brad and Kyle brought in Chris Wise, who would help build the technical foundations of their new business. The three launched NDStorefront as the very first version of the company that would later become Fullscript.
Though our name and look has evolved, since day 1, our team has been obsessed with creating simple software that focuses on the best supplement dispensing experience for our practitioners and their patients.
By designing seamless software in-house, providing the best customer support in the industry, and bridging (but never replacing) supplier to practitioner relationships, we’re able to provide a quality practice tool that is truly changing the way health and wellness is prescribed.
We believe in integrative healthcare, and we admire the practitioners who provide this type of care. We also know that practicing integrative healthcare is not easy. Managing a dispensary and ensuring compliance to supplement recommendations can be a drain on time and resources. Fullscript’s mission is to take the hassle out of integrative healthcare by making supplementation seamless and easy for practitioners and their patients. We’re making strides on this mission every day, with every new practitioner we bring on board.
In the summer of 2018, Natural Partners, a national player in wholesale supplement distribution, merged with Fullscript, the creators of the first online supplement dispensing platform, to create Natural Partners Fullscript. Since then, NPFS has been the preferred partner of over 300+ professional supplement brands, EHRs such as Power2Practice and Jane, and major influencers in integrative health including Dr. Josh Axe and Dr. Aviva Romm.
The allopathic healthcare system is built to treat symptoms swiftly and efficiently. When there’s an emergency or a patient in need of acute care, conventional medicine springs into action and saves lives. But the system’s strong reflexes for acute care give way to its weakness in prevention. Now North Americans are becoming increasingly unwell and many go untreated by a healthcare system bogged down by urgent cases that could have been prevented by simple lifestyle changes or an integrated plan to address the root cause. We believe that the North American healthcare system needs to change to support individuals through their entire wellness journey, instead of just when things get really rough. Integrative and functional medicine are movements that can make this a reality, but evolving healthcare is like pushing a boulder up a mountain. It takes an army of believers all pushing in the same direction to get to the summit. So we’re taking the hassle out of integrative medicine, pushing alongside those individuals who want to see a change in healthcare. We’re pushing for healthcare that puts the patient in the driver’s seat. We’re pushing for wellness that is affordable and achievable and available to all. This is our mission. It drives everything we do. We’ve got a long way to go, but every little push takes us closer to our vision of wellness fulfilled.

I have been working at Fullscript full-time (Less than a year)
I've have never worked in a place like this. The culture is great - dog friendly office, open layout, and a real sense of community. People show up to the all hands, people show up to board games and town halls. There is always a buzz of collaboration going on.
In terms of tech stack, it's so refreshing to be so current. The company size is just right - large enough that I'm not worried about going out of business tomorrow, but small enough that we can get stuff done. Took me by surprise when i went to a meeting and we made a decision in the room - and when I got back to my desk we were doing it! No putting it up for review, and then next quarter discussing it... it just happened!
The company is a great place to work. I'm stoked to work here.
Parking downtown is difficult.
Advice to Management
Keep the magic that you've created going!
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Fullscript (Ottawa, ON) in July 2017.
1. 40 minute conference call with developers.
2. 40 minute conference call with co founders.
3. 5 minute Phone call with the CEO
4. Visiting the office, meeting everyone & going for lunch with a bunch of developers
The interviews were very conversational in nature. A bunch of technical questions but nothing that was designed to trick me. It felt very much like geeking out with some peers at a meet-up.
