A healthcare ecommerce company that sells at-home testing kits and digital services for getting the results and consulting with a healthcare provider has raised $30 million in new funding.
LetsGetChecked.com, an at-home health testing platform founded in 2014 that connects customers to regulated laboratory testing, raised the funding from a group of investors led by LTP, a Boston-based equity investment firm focused on healthcare information technology.
The company, which sells the testing kit on its own ecommerce site and on other web retailing websites such as CVS.com, McKesson.com, Walmart.com and others, will use the money to “continue scaling the company’s consumer brand in diagnostics,” says CEO Peter Foley.
LetsGetChecked’s list of testing procedures currently includes wellness testing for cholesterol and thyroid, cancer screening, and testing for sexual health, fertility, genetic and pharmacogenomic (how genes affect a person’s response to drugs) among others.
After a customer buys a test kit online, the kit is shipped by next-day delivery and individuals can complete and return the samples for rapid processing within as little as two days, says LetsGetChecked.com.
Tests are performed by certified labs. Throughout the process, patients are connected with physicians to discuss any abnormal results and determine the best course of action for treatment and care.
Patients also receive a nurse call to discuss the results live; patients can request on the call to have an online prescription at no additional cost sent to the pharmacy of their choice, says LetsGetChecked.com.
“By combining lab results with real-time wearable data, users can receive risk assessments and scores such as their cardiovascular health and others to determine the probability of developing a heart attack within a given timeframe,” the company says.
To date, about 155,000 tests have been conducted on kits from LetsGetChecked.com, the company says.Favorite
