My Blood Test, a Pretoria-based Digital Health Start-up, has today launched a new service whereby patients can order routine blood and urine tests from their website, www.mybloodtest.co.za . Once a test has been ordered, the patient can visit any of their 33 partner labs in and around Gauteng to provide their blood or urine sample. Results are then shared confidentially via the website, typically within a few hours. The site interprets results in a simple and understandable manner, and keeps a history of all results over time.
My Blood Test CEO, Jaco van den Heever, says “We save patients time and money by allowing them to request tests they already know they need, themselves. Our GP is alerted whenever a patient receives a result back that is flagged as a dangerous condition, to provide patients with more information about the result and propose an appropriate action plan.”
Tests offered include Blood Group, Pregnancy, Sexually Transmitted Infection screenings, Weight Management and General Wellness Screenings. Routine tests such as Cholesterol and Diabetes tests, PSA and many more are also available. The website offers individual tests and bundles and promotional prices from time to time. With no more need for a doctor’s referral for simple tests, My Blood Test is empowering patients to take control of their own health and wellness through the use of digital technology.
