Physician-reviewed, actionable test results from CLIA-certified labs are provided within days of sample receipt. The company also provides testing and engagement programs for health plans, healthcare organizations, and employers.

The Austin-based company was founded in 2015 and is advised by a Scientific Advisory Board that includes scientists from Harvard, MIT, Google, and NYU.

Since launching in 2016, more than one million people have used Everlywell’s tests and digital platform to manage their health and wellness, according to the company. The company is also selling FDA-authorized at-home COVID-19 sample collection test kits through its online platform.

“The pandemic has shed light on the challenges of lab testing for Americans, from unknown costs to confusion and inconvenience. We’ve been empowering people with a new way to get tested for five years and will continue to lead the way in a rapidly expanding space,” said Julia Cheek, Everlywell Founder, and CEO. “We believe lab testing will be rapid, simple, and coupled with virtual care in the near future. This partnership with additional world-class investors enables us to build a transformative, multi-generational digital health company that puts people first – where they belong.”
