We are working to put instant point-of-care testing and electronic health records in the palm of your hand.
THE GLOBAL NEED
A billion families across the globe lack access to quality healthcare
Half of the world’s population lacks access to essential health services.1 In the poorest countries, there are 0.23 doctors per 10,000 people, compared to 26.04 doctors per 10,000 people in the USA.2 The loss of life in low- to middle-income countries (LMICs) due to treatable diseases is estimated at 8 million annually.3
Diagnosing the Problem
Diagnostic errors account for the deaths of 7 million children each year4 and have been identified by the WHO as a global safety priority.5
- Limited availability, affordability and quality of diagnostic tests
- Failure to interpret tests correctly
- Little sharing of medical information
- Lost test results and lack of health records
- Low availability of health informatics
- Deficiencies in training of health personnel
- Care is too expensive and compromises basic needs like food and housing

Our goal is to bring affordable, near-instant testing and a full suite of personal health technologies to more than a billion underserved families around the world.
