Capsule

Capsule is a new kind of pharmacy. Or maybe a new kind of pharmacy mixed with an old type of pharmacy. Anything but a chain type of pharmacy, where you wait in line to talk to people who would rather be anywhere else.

They are the type of pharmacy made up of friendly, caring pharmacists who carry prescriptions straight to your door, at the tap of your phone. We are also people who take pleasure in looking after people and hope to take care of you for years to come.

What they do:

  • Send a new prescription:
    • Any doctor can prescribe to Capsule, and you don’t need an account before they prescribe. We’ll text you as soon as we receive your prescriptions at the phone number your doctor sent us.
  • Transfer your refills:
    • It only takes a minute to transfer refills from your old pharmacy to Capsule. We’ll contact your old pharmacy and transfer your prescriptions to Capsule within one day so we can hand-deliver your next refill wherever and whenever you need it.
  • Deliver your prescription:
    • Once we have your prescription, we’ll text you to schedule your free delivery whenever and wherever you need it. There just needs to be someone – a friend, a doorman, a colleague – to receive your medication when it arrives. All our deliveries are contactless.

While Santa Monica-UCLA Medical Center and OIC may be the most visible component of the alliance with UCLA, this partnership has provided enhanced opportunities for research and education. Scientists and clinicians work together in close proximity, stimulating the cross-fertilization of theories, knowledge and experience that generates valuable new ideas and therapies, moving breakthroughs from bench to bedside quickly and safely.

The alliance between UCLA and OIC creates a platform for unparalleled contributions to patient care and scientific discovery in orthopaedic surgery and musculoskeletal medicine. 

The new Santa Monica-UCLA Medical Center and Orthopaedic Hospital, the OIC on the downtown campus, the Orthopaedic Medical Center on the UCLA Westwood campus, and the Orthopaedic Hospital/UCLA Residency Program combined have the capacity to lead advancements in musculoskeletal patient care, research and education world-wide.
