Theranos was chosen to be honored as one of our GLM Highlights in Health.
Theranos is a revolutionary blood analytics company. They perform blood tests using a non-traditional method without the use of any syringes. Using a painless, patented method of pricking a finger instead, it can perform as many as 70 tests at a time from just a few drops of blood—about 100th to 1000th the amount drawn by venipuncture. Theranos’ founder, Elizabeth Holmes, shared that she had this world changing vision to start this company ‘Because systems like this could completely revolutionize how effective health care is delivered. And this is what I want to do. I don’t want to make an incremental change in some technology in my life. I want to create a whole new technology, and one that is aimed at helping humanity at all levels regardless of geography or ethnicity or age or gender.’ Our GLM team salutes this company and its founder for their honorable service in Healthcare innovation.
