We’re delighted to support aware® as it launches its app in private beta, giving people control over their health by making check-ups more personalised, digitised, fast, and easily accessible. By digitising checkups from the ground up and leveraging blood tests and biomarkers, they are providing people with a full picture of their health based on their own unique data.
With one simple click customers can book a blood draw appointment in the aware® lab, get tested, and receive a personalised health report in the aware® app within 24h and then retest in 3 to 6 months with a subscription to track their progress over time. For businesses in Germany, aware® offers company-wide aware® health days to provide employees with easy access to premium care.
Regular blood tests are the first step for the startup. Within the next few years, aware® aims to build Europe’s largest health database for personalised medicine. This data-driven approach will contribute to medical research. Plus, it has the potential to discover new insights and untap new treatment options for millions of people.
