A brand focused on bringing excellence to the field of point of care diagnostics


With the rise in STDs RKS was tasked with redefining women’s health through a point of care solution that enabled patients to receive their results in 20 minutes rather than a week.  RKS worked with Talis to develop a holistic solution including physical, digital, and brand touchpoints for a system that would provide STD testing results the same day at the patient’s primary care physician instead of from a third party diagnostic company.  The challenge was to develop a system that was easily used by physicians’ assistants and

other employees who don’t have formal training in running diagnostic machines with little or no training required.  In close collaboration with Talis, the team developed a User Experience that passed CLIA Waived compliance standards.  Through the development with RKS, Talis was able to raise $5.6M from the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and $4.4M from CARB-X to support testing and launch.  Together with Talis, we are taking point of care to new heights and transforming medical care.
