"This has been a quarter of negotiating and concluding key partnerships that we expect to contribute strongly to our growth during the second half of this year," said James Howard-Tripp, Chairman & CEO of StageZero Life Sciences. "A major focus is on self-funded employers where we believe Aristotle and AVRT uniquely position us, the insurance groups that back them, but also to position ourselves for new, exciting initiatives in Preventative Health. Our partners reflect this," he added.
Strategic partnerships with laboratory groups and clinical groups will increase the number of employers, clinics and individual patients who can readily access StageZero's Aristotle test and AVRT/TREAT programs. Individuals and Employers are increasingly looking for better health outcomes and early detection notably contributes to a better outcome.
