EP 1: Checkable Medical: How It Started

In this episode, founder and CEO Patty Post shares her background and passion as an entrepreneur in multiple industries and the path that led her to form Checkable Medical.

In her experiences working as a medical device executive and as a consultant in a Clinical Research Organization (CRO), she found opportunities to reduce healthcare burdens (for the system, the consumer, and the payers).

Patty discusses the difficulty of being a nurturing mother and a career woman at the same time. In caring for her children's illnesses, she experienced the frustration of taking time away from work, spending hours at clinics waiting for a diagnosis. Patty knew there had to be a better way; at-home diagnostic tests could reduce friction for patients/caregivers and lower the burden on the healthcare system. With this vision, Checkable Medical was born.

Checkable Medical offers simple, rapid at-home diagnostic tests and a state-of-the-art digital platform to connect patients with healthcare (telehealth) providers and pharmacists. The platform also provides treatment management to help patients complete treatment regimens so that re-infection is less likely.

Patty discusses the many phases of getting a medical product to market: fund-raising, clinical validation, analytical validation, FDA approval, engineering, consumer surveys, human-factor validation, marketing, and white-labeling.

Listen in to learn more about the Checkable Medical story and the heartbeat of the company.
