The company is developing an in-home blood testing system that can deliver results in up to 15 minutes
Verv Technologies, founded in 2012 by Jeff Sutton, polled more than a thousand people in Canada and the United States asking their opinion on monitoring and controlling testing aspects of their health and wellness.
The company found that nearly 70 per cent of respondents are more interested in managing their health from home using new services and technologies due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
An additional 66 per cent said they want to test their own blood from home and 81 per cent said they are willing to pay $300 or more for the convenience of home-based health care.
“At Verv Technologies, we’re on the leading edge of what consumers want and expect in this modern era of health care. Our technology is going to allow anyone to monitor and control their health from their home,” said Sutton.
