Aditxt, Inc., (NASDAQ: ADTX) (“Aditxt” or the “Company”), a global innovation activation company focused on the discovery, development, and deployment of technologies that monitor and modulate the immune system, announced today that it has appointed Ernie Lee to serve as the Chief Executive Officer of the Company’s wholly-owned subsidiary Pearsanta, Inc. (“Pearsanta”). Ernie’s appointment is intended to accelerate the commercial launch of Test2Treat.me. Test2Treat.me is an end-to-end, business-to-business (“B2B”) and direct-to-consumer (“DTC”) clinical diagnostic testing services platform for retail pharmacies, physician practices, employee benefit programs, and consumers.
“Naming Ernie as CEO of Pearsanta, is a crucial initial step in our plan to scale the company and capitalize on global opportunities. With Ernie at the helm, we believe that Test2Treat.me has the potential to quickly fill a void in the healthcare market for DTC point-of-care testing and treatment,” says Amro Albanna, co-founder, chairman, and CEO of Aditxt.
Mr. Lee brings over two decades of experience in the development and distribution of innovative products and services to healthcare providers. Previously, Mr. Lee was the CEO and Chief Marketing Officer of FirstVitals Health and Wellness Inc., where he received the 2012 Health Care Innovation Award from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services for the implementation of early diabetes remote patient monitoring and care management services for Medicaid’s underserved beneficiaries using a proprietary remote patient monitoring platform. Mr. Lee holds a patent for an innovative electronic healthcare payment system connecting insurance payers and healthcare providers.
“I am excited to lead a company focused on the power of health by the numbers. Episodic care will never be the same again with the advent of our Test2Treat.me platform,” says Lee. “With physician shortages and limited access to immediate care, Test2Treat.me meets patient demand for personalized medicine that makes a real difference in how efficiently patients are tested and treated. Additionally, with increasing out-of-pocket costs for healthcare services, we believe consumers will seek best-in-class clinical diagnostic laboratory and professional services as direct purchasers of healthcare services. Lessons learned from the COVID experience: consumers are expecting rapid turnaround time for lab tests with the convenience of online consultations with healthcare providers, and Test2Treat.me was designed to meet this new demand.”
