Julia Cheek says Americans are screwed up with lab tests in an interview with Pomp

May 19, 2020

In a recent interview with Anthony “Pomp” Pompliano, Julia Cheek, CEO of Home Health Testing Company, Everlywell, called for a major overhaul of the US laboratory testing industry.

“I fought this struggle for five years and talked about breaking laboratory tests and kidding Americans,” Cheek said in a podcast on May 19 in an interview with Pompliano, adding:

“Laboratory tests are cheap, they can be affordable. You should know how much your tests will cost. […] There is no excuse, especially since you have to pay more out of your own pocket each time. “

According to a May 16 TechCrunch article, Everlywell recently became the first FDA-approved “stand-alone sampling kit.”

As a co-founder and partner of Morgan Creek Digital hedge fund, Pompliano found in an interview that his company had invested in Everlywell a few years ago.

Everywell facilitates remote medical tests. The team has a network of doctors to evaluate the results, Cheek explained. Customers can visit the company’s website and get the required evidence. The process includes the remote provision of the required data or samples and their later evaluation for evaluation.

Everlywell also offers tests for a group of other diseases, e.g. B. Food sensitivity and sexually transmitted infections.

A big problem in the upcoming presidential election

Cheek said the current situation with COVID-19 has increased people’s concern about the evidence. Sometimes the US has demonstrated a lack of evidence of COVID-19. Cheek said scaling the tests takes time, adding:

“I think people now have a deep interest in understanding why they can’t get a test that should be available, and we can do a lot more in their eyes about why testing in general is important and see that we already. “

Everlywell’s CEO said the tests could become a major issue in the US presidential election. later this year.

At the end of the interview, Pompliano returned to Crypto and jokingly asked if Everlywell accepted Bitcoin as a form of payment. “We should,” said Cheek, adding, “we’re still not doing it, I mean many ecommerce companies are doing it.”

The evidence is just one of the many problems affecting the global condition of COVID-19. A recent Cointelegraph article found that privacy is another important struggle in the midst of the pandemic.

Cointelegraph contacted Everlywell for further details, but received no response until the date of publication. This article will be updated accordingly if a response is received.
