NEW YORK (360Dx) – At-home testing firm LetsGetChecked today announced it has closed a $12 million Series A funding round.
The financing was led by Optum Ventures, the independent venture fund of health services firm Optum, and Qiming Venture Partners. The funding will be used to scale LetsGetChecked, further develop its technology platform that links customers to laboratories, and grow the clinical support team, the firm said.
Founded in 2014, LetsGetChecked's technology menu includes lifestyle, cancer screening, sexual health, and fertility and hormone tests. Its platform connects patients with medical professionals, a global network of laboratory partners, and logistical support.
A user can order a physician-approved lab test, which is dispatched from LetsGetChecked's ISO-accredited facility. The patient then self-collects a sample and sends it back. If the test is positive or has an out-of-range result, a member of the nursing team contacts the patient. Afterward, the results will be released to the patient's personal health account.
LetsGetChecked in based in Dublin and New York and has more than 30 tests available in the US, Canada, and 14 countries in Europe.
"Our goal is to provide individuals with greater control of their health through accessible technology and to continue partnering with more labs and health systems to bring more specialized testing direct to consumers," LetsGetChecked Founder Peter Foley said in a statement.
