GoMeyra (pronounced GO-MARE-UH) – a software company that automates medical laboratories to enable faster and more accurate sample processing, and provides enterprise-level technology solutions for healthcare providers – launched one year ago amid a global pandemic. The tech firm’s first year in business saw a growing network of clients spread across the United States, Canada and the Caribbean; a workforce increase of 340 percent; and more than 1 million COVID-19 tests processed.
Its revolutionary new tech solution, GoMeyra LIMS (laboratory information management system), is transforming the industry by tripling productivity at a time when the world needs a new level of efficiency in lab testing services more than ever. The innovative, cloud-based solution enables unprecedented processing times for COVID-19 RT-PCR, rapid PCR, antigen, antibody and serology testing.
Bootstrapped – A Self-Financed Company
A Silicon Valley visionary and experienced systems IT developer created GoMeyra during the COVID-19 lockdown to address the pandemic-induced testing crisis that exposed the inadequacies of antiquated lab systems across the country. GoMeyra Founder and Chief Executive Officer Jaswant S. Tony recognized the need for increased laboratory efficiencies. Tony tapped proven expertise and his own wallet to solve the problem, financing 100 percent of the operation himself.
“If I had taken on investors, GoMeyra could not be as flexible as it is today. We are in the unique position to determine what the medical community needs and quickly provide solutions without delays a committee approach can generate,” Tony said. “Self-financing has worked extremely well for us as we have no debt and became profitable within our first year of business.”
More than a LIMS – GoMeyra Network
GoMeyra initially launched with one software product, a LIMS to help labs effectively handle the COVID-19 testing emergency. The software features advanced automation capabilities, allowing for the processing of significantly more tests with fewer resources in record time.
“But GoMeyra’s primary innovation became so much more than a LIMS. We’ve developed a network of labs that have become invaluable for many of our partners, allowing them to expand their services – especially in areas where they did not have a lab testing partner before,” Tony said.
The company’s GoMeyra NETWORK is a unique feature that provides access to test processing through an interconnectivity of lab partners across the country, Canada and the Caribbean. Through the network, labs can efficiently manage high daily sample volumes and maximize processing capacity by coordinating overflow testing. This, in turn, can help guard against potential bottlenecks caused by sudden testing spikes. Additionally, labs can receive new business through the network since GoMeyra clients, who conduct testing throughout the country, are always looking for partner labs who can conduct testing in various locations.
“As our roster of new labs and medical practices grows, GoMeyra continues to expand its network making faster testing accessible to more people. Additionally, GoMeyra is using its ingenuity and technological expertise to challenge other sectors of the healthcare system to create more efficient and comprehensive platforms,” Tony said.
GoMeyra recently launched a next-generation health care management platform, GoMeyra MD, a suite of software modules that give medical professionals the tools they need to comprehensively manage patient care and electronic health care records, including a proprietary telehealth application. The first module available is the Scheduler – a web interface allowing doctors, medical practitioners and healthcare workers to view and schedule tests, procedures or appointments.
GoMeyra also offers GoMeyra PASS and GoMeyra SCAN. GoMeyra PASS is a free app available in the Apple and Android app stores that provides a convenient way to show proof of a vaccination or negative COVID-19 results on demand and in real time. For enterprise-level organizations, GoMeyra SCAN – a customized app and portal administrators use to scan an employee’s, student’s or customer’s QR code for validation – integrates with GoMeyra PASS, allowing officials to identify an individual and verify vaccinations or test results before granting admittance to offices, school campuses, modes of transportation and event venues.
