MediXall Group has appointed John Howard as senior vice president of laboratory services. He will guide the company as it expands into the clinical laboratory testing market. MediXall expects to begin offering such testing before the end of the year, it said.
Howard is negotiating with two "major" lab testing companies that would allow it to develop custom health screening lab test panels and profiles, which will include male- and female-specific panels, organ-specific panels, and cancer marker panels. It will also offer toxicology panels for urine drug testing and confirmation and different hormone panels.
Howard started as a medical technology in clinical labs and later founded and built a clinical laboratory with more than 175 full-time employees. He also invented and founded PocketMD, which provides medical records on credit card-sized CD that can be carried in a wallet or purse.
