There is an inflection point happening right before our eyes in healthcare. In 2019, only 8% of patients had tried telehealth. Today, the pandemic has brought the future faster than anyone could have ever imagined. Now, a staggering 80% of patients plan to use telehealth. But there is a huge problem - over 70% of medical conditions still require going to a laboratory and virtual care has no way to reach these patients in-person.

That's why Getlabs brings healthcare companies to you - starting with laboratories. For patients, they can book convenient at-home lab appointments and we send a phlebotomist to draw their lab order and deliver to Labcorp and Quest Diagnostics. For telehealth, the Getlabs API bridges the gap between virtual and in-person healthcare, connecting physician-led telemedicine with in-person care from medical professionals. This enables healthcare providers to extend care to the home unlocking high-quality healthcare for more patients at a fraction of the cost.

Our mission is to extend the capabilities of telehealth to treat more complex conditions. The US healthcare system is complex, archaic, and broken. We will need the brightest minds of our generation to achieve our mission. There is a seismic shift and we have the opportunity to build a generational company that redefines healthcare like Facebook redefined social, Alphabet redefined search, and Amazon redefined e-commerce. If you think you have what it takes and you're obsessed with delighting patients, we want to talk with you.

Our team brings together deep technology and healthcare experience, from companies including Uber, DoorDash, Labcorp, Quest Diagnostics, and Y Combinator. Getlabs is rapidly expanding nationwide and is backed by prominent investors including PivotNorth Capital, Liquid 2 Ventures, Tusk Ventures, and more.
