Getlabs provides convenient at-home lab appointments. Rather than needing to go to a laboratory and sit in a waiting room, patients pick a time and we send a phlebotomist to draw their samples. Once collected, we deliver to the top national laboratories including LabCorp and Quest Diagnostics.
Across healthcare, the stress and inconvenience of needing to go to medical facilities deters patients from following through with their appointments. That is why our mission is to create the infrastructure and network for at-home care. We believe all patients deserve access to high-quality medical appointments in the convenience of their homes. Join us and lets transform the healthcare experience to be delightful for patients – starting with lab tests.
Our team has extensive domain expertise in technology, operations, and healthcare with team members from Y Combinator, Uber, DoorDash, Sonder, Cisco, CVS, LabCorp, and Quest Diagnostics. Getlabs is backed by prominent venture capital firms including PivotNorth, Liquid 2, Tusk, Rosecliff, and more.
