nClouds AWS Case Study | The Pill Club
Note: In March 2022 The Pill Club was rebranded as Favor.
Founded in 2014, The Pill Club is a digital health company that empowers women to lead their healthiest lives. Their mission is to make healthcare more accessible by building digital primary care that closes gender, socioeconomic, and racial gaps in our current health system. As one of the few digital health companies that accepts Medicaid, most major insurance plans, and cash, The Pill Club helps women address their sexual health and overall wellness, regardless of where they live or their financial situation – making them an affordable, accessible telehealth provider.
The Pill Club’s platform fills prescriptions, manages fulfillment, and ships birth control at no charge with a personal touch. Their platform is HIPAA compliant, and powered by pharmacies in California and Texas that are recognized by the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy (NABP) and multiple other pharmacy boards to dispense medication nationwide. Backed by Stanford physicians, The Pill Club’s exemplary healthcare team consists of doctors, nurse practitioners, pharmacists, and registered nurses.

Faster time-to-market for new features
Improved reliability and availability
To achieve its goal of dramatically increasing the customer base, The Pill Club needed an automated CI/CD pipeline to deliver new features and functionality rapidly and enhanced scalability to handle increased demand.
“nClouds has been an integral part of our migration to AWS. Their unique DevOps skill set and AWS migration expertise helped The Pill Club build an automated infrastructure that’s helping our engineers deliver new features and functionality rapidly.”
The Pill Club’s original infrastructure was small with QA, staging, and production environments. Production had three servers, most of the environment was built manually, and there was no CI/CD pipeline. The Pill Club asked nClouds to help them migrate to AWS and build an infrastructure aligned with AWS Well-Architected Framework best practices. Once the modernized infrastructure was built, The Pill Club asked nClouds to provide 24/7 Support Services to help keep things running smoothly.
The roadmap called for nClouds to build out a multi-region application architecture for improved scalability, availability, and fault tolerance with easy failover to a backup region. It also enhances the user experience (UX) and mitigates possible disruptions and latency to boost application performance.
