THE SEROMATCH STORY
Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STD’s) have been a health problem arguably for as long as humans have existed. In recent years social interaction through online social media and internet dating sites has propagated the more rapid spread of STD’s. Thus, there exists the unique opportunity to use information technology to actually reduce the spread of STD’s.
Seromatch’s founder and CEO, Dr. Derek Farley, greatly values disease prevention and further believes that reduction in overall health costs, morbidity, and mortality can be achieved through the harmonious integration of STD screening lab tests and information technology systems. SeroMatch endeavors to create an IT solution that prevents STD transmission through a confidential, universal matching/screening process. The goal of SeroMatch is to become the trusted, original, recognized brand providing the following important services:
- Highly available, discreet, and reliable web-based STD testing services
- Tele-medical treatment or referral for any positive STD result
- Secure, private matching with potential dating partners based on STD testing, thereby minimizing exposure to STD’s before potential for transmission of disease
- Foster an environment that puts STD testing before emotional investment in a relationship, in a secure and HIPAA compliant manner
