Promoting Consumer-Driven Health Care
Everlywell was selected as one of Fast Company’s Most Innovative Companies in 2019. It was founded in 2015 on the principle that people deserve better access to affordable, high quality lab tests that provide insightful, digitally-enabled results with actionable, evidence-based next steps. This is a crucial innovation since, currently, lab tests are used in 80% of medical diagnoses, and chronic conditions require frequent testing. Everlywell enables testing to be convenient and on demand, providing easy to understand, personalized data and recommendations. It represents a key part of the movement towards more consumer-driven health care. Tests can be purchased online or at retail consumer outlets and samples are taken at home following easy, guided instructions. Samples are then sent by mail to a CLIA-certified laboratory. Independent physicians review all test orders and results as part of the cost of the kit.
Newly appointed as an independent director in 2019, Dr. Rodin believes there is great value in placing more health information and control in the hands of the consumer. She is committed to helping bring convenient, affordable health care to millions more people over the next few years, including many who are not easily served by the existing healthcare system.
