Our lives have been undoubtedly turned upside down in the past year. Between terrifying outbreaks around the world, harsh lockdowns and all-around chaos, we’ve almost forgotten how life was before the virus came centre-stage.

One thing that has kept flourishing during the pandemic, however, is the human spirit to innovate at all cost. Building a HealthTech startup in the middle of a global health crisis might seem like a tall order, yet Covid Home Test, CHT, has done just that.

CHT evolved from a need to simplify Covid testing directly at home. We offer a comprehensive portfolio of tests, all ready to be purchased online, with a dedicated delivery driver coming over to your house within hours to pick up the sample.

After the sample is collected, it is quickly sent to a world-class lab testing facility, delivering your results in less than a day, or in even as little as three hours, by email. All of this is managed by a sophisticated set of digital tools with a modern Micro Service design.

We take care of all the complex requirements involved with international travel, from bespoke arrival test packages (Green and Amber countries) to Fit-to-Fly certificates required to enter new destinations.

Today, a bit over six months since launch, CHT is one of London’s premier private Covid test providers. The technology required to achieve success at such a scale is what sets CHT apart from other providers.

We’ve invested heavily in best-in-class secure eCommerce experience, fast deliveries and accurate testing, all delivered to you straight at home.

Results speak for themselves: we’ve helped over 15,000 customers with an Excellent rating on TrustPilot.

We will talk about the approach we are taking to reach even more people while designing a safe, modern HealthTech business in a fast-evolving space
