The more I think about my own health and the health of my loved ones I continue to marvel in the fact that what we know today about ourselves pails in comparison to what we had to guess about ourselves just a few years ago.
Our purpose at our company is to take the guess work out of the equation. In fact, when I think back when we started just a few years ago, we were shocked to learn that drug incompatibility was a leading cause of death, and yet until recently there was not an easy way to determine the precise method of personalizing medicine. Our MatchMyMeds test has the capability of empowering people to share this information with their health care practitioners so that better choices in prescribing the best suited drug for patients are made. Our test is continuously and rigorously being updated so that the list of covered classes of medication is current. We are proud of this test and the good it is doing.
We have come a long way, in a very short period of time, and as I have said many times previously, I don’t believe that we can stop pushing the limits, in fact through the past 100 years the frightened and faint hearted have warned us not to push any further, not to learn anymore because it is much too risky. I don’t believe we can stop; I don’t believe we were meant to stop on our journey of building an ecosystem of next generation healthcare. The potential for knowledge and advancement in science and technology is equally great and we are not afraid of the future.
Everyday when we come to work, we look inwards to ourselves, and ask a simple question, what can we do to live better lives and we look to what we have created? A salesman of yesterday once said ‘I loved the product so much I bought the company’. As founders, we feel the same way, and that is why we believe our best of tomorrow is yet to be lived.
