There is an inflection point happening right before our eyes. In 2019, only 8% of patients had tried telehealth. Today, the pandemic brought the future faster than anyone could have imagined. Now, a staggering 80% of patients plan to use telehealth. But there is a massive problem. Over 70% of medical decisions still require collecting diagnostic tests and telehealth has no way to reach these patients.

That's why Getlabs brings healthcare directly to patients. Patients can book a phlebotomist to draw their lab order at home and deliver to Labcorp and Quest Diagnostics. Healthcare companies can use the Getlabs API to send medical professionals to their patients and collect diagnostic tests, including labs, vitals, ultrasounds, imaging, and more.

By creating the infrastructure for healthcare providers to make informed medical decisions remotely, Getlabs bridges the gap between digital and in-person care and unlocks the full potential of telehealth.

The US healthcare system is complex, archaic, and broken yet we are experiencing the perfect storm. We will need the brightest minds of our generation to succeed. If you share our passion for making healthcare more convenient and enjoyable for 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.
