Ease and Convenience of At-Home Health Tests
Dec 30, 2019 09:01AM
The public can check many health aspects at home in an easy and highly convenient way without going to a doctor’s office. LetsGetChecked, based in Dublin, Ireland, and New York City, provides comprehensive, at-home health testing along with complementary clinical services and connections with a global network of regulated laboratories, enabling users to take more active roles in their health and decision making.
After obtaining a testing kit online or from a selected pharmacy, customers self-collect a blood, saliva or urine sample with a kit-provided lancet and send it to an affiliated lab—all Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments-approved and College of American Pathologists-accredited—using a pre-paid label. Most will receive a call from the company’s nursing team with results a few days later, which are also posted in their LetsGetChecked account.
Thirty separate kits—grouped in men’s, women’s and sexual health plus wellness—can check for sexually transmitted diseases; some cancers; thyroid function; vitamin, cholesterol and hormonal levels; and more.
Since its founding in 2014, the company has performed more than 250,000 tests. CB Insights, a leading private company research and analysis firm, named LetsGetChecked to its inaugural Digital Health 150 list in October.
