WHAT IT DOES
LetsGetChecked offers over 100 types of home tests, including tests for sexual health, cholesterol, diabetes, thyroid and COVID-19.
Buyers receive their kit by mail, with which they collect and return a personal sample for testing. One of the startup’s laboratory partners analyzes the sample and returns it to the LetsGetChecked clinical team, which can also provide follow-up treatment through telemedicine and pharmacies.
With recently raised capital, LetsGetChecked plans to roll out new ways to help patients with medical conditions and chronic conditions. This will be done through strategic investments in their core offerings.
“We see unprecedented demand for diagnosis and home care as an alternative to traditional in-person doctor visits, and we are expanding our offerings to include telemedicine and treatment services to further help people live longer, happier lives.” founder and CEO of LetsGetChecked, the statement said.
In particular, the company is expanding its telemedicine services to provide asynchronous chat and video calls between patients and doctors. It will also expand its pharmaceutical services to include treatment options for conditions such as high cholesterol and thyroid medication through the acquisition of a pharmacy in Jupiter, Florida. Finally, LetsGetChecked continues to invest in its diagnostic testing and plans to release new test kits this year.
