In November, Theranos and Walgreens (NYSE: WAG) opened Theranos Wellness Centers in Walgreens’ stores in our metropolitan area. It was Theranos’ first venture outside California.
Theranos is revolutionizing the medical testing process and the industry, for that matter.
Their testing process is done using 1/1000 the size of a typical blood sample. The micro-samples are typically taken from one tiny finger stick (eliminating big needles and multiple vials). Results are available to doctors in a matter of hours.
Theranos’ business model is to publish its prices for services and charge everyone the same price.
Elizabeth Holmes, CEO of Theranos said, “…Our goal is to bring high quality, affordable lab testing within 5-miles of every home in Phoenix….. I started this company to be able to provide access — and access means both affordable as well as timely diagnostic information — for everyone.”
The company’s technology is proprietary and offers a painless way for patients to get blood tested.
