Intro to TestCard
TestCard.com is a UK domiciled startup revolutionizing the direct to consumer healthcare diagnostics market. The company has innovated a delivery mechanism that allows conditions to be diagnosed immediately in the comfort and convenience of home. TestCard enables an individual to take ownership of their health, making laboratory level information accessible and painless and thus enfranchizing the individual and ultimately democratizing healthcare.
The company’s innovation is a diagnostic urinalysis (urine test) kit embedded into a postcard. The ‘TestCard’ and the accompanying TestCard app, are not only a reliable and non-invasive alternative to costly and time-consuming doctor visits; but crucially, serve as an early diagnosis tool that prompts earlier medical intervention and treatment.
What is TestCard?
TestCard enables an individual to take ownership of their health, making laboratory level information accessible and painless and thus enfranchising the individual and ultimately democratising healthcare.
What is the TestCard solution ?
TestCard is a revolutionary urinalysis system, which combines the accuracy of medical lab tests with the latest in mobile technology.
The user simply applies urine to the pull-out strip (applicator) imbedded in the postcard and, using the TestCard app, holds their mobile device above the TestCard enabling the app to deliver an immediate result. Simple for the end user, effective and instantaneous.
Medical jargon is confusing and can cause further patient anxiety, therefore TestCard delivers a clear interpretation of results in language that is easily understood.
Given the natural tendency of the patient/consumer to delay health monitoring and screening through conventional doctor visits, TestCard fills a growing gap in the healthcare market.
