  • About Us

    Bringing healthcare directly to you


    Too many recently discharged patients quickly end up back in the hospital


    We aim to reduce insurance costs and hospital re-admission rates by providing recently discharged patients with rapid and low-cost biomarker-guided medical diagnostic self-tests that can easily and routinely be performed in the patient’s home to help better manage their immediate and more demanding post-discharge healthcare needs
