About Tomorrow’s Health

After more than a decade in the making, Tomorrow’s Health is finally here! Located in Kennewick, WA, our laboratory will be providing cutting edge testing capabilities for the local Tri-Cities community and beyond.

In response to the current COVID-19 pandemic that is gripping the entire world in its deadly embrace, we are responding to the call for increased lab capacity by providing COVID-19, Influenza A/B and comprehensive respiratory pathogen testing using state-of-the-art technology.

In company with COVID-19 testing, we offer a wide menu of laboratory tests, including thyroid function, reproductive health, comprehensive metabolic panel, complete blood count, lipid panel, hormone panel, various cancer screenings, and much more!

Leveraging the latest in next generation sequencing (NGS) technology, we will begin with respiratory pathogen testing, and will quickly move to the diagnosis of other infectious diseases, such as those of the urinary tract, bloodstream and gastrointestinal tract. This type of testing is quickly proving its worth, particularly in the areas of severe disease.

We then plan on moving into the human genomics arena where we wish to help catalyze a healthcare revolution. A revolution where healthcare becomes personalized and preventative, a revolution where we unlock the exponentially growing potential of understanding the human genome, a revolution where knowing the entire genome sequence of each individual will significantly improve his or her health and well-being.

Tomorrow's Health Location

Our vision for Tomorrows Health has and will be to save patients money (avoiding unnecessary doctor’s visits), time (waiting for medical appointments and doctor’s orders), and hassle (DTC lab test results come directly to the patient). More importantly, however, DTC testing will allow patients to become much more involved in their own healthcare. A person that has a family history of type II diabetes can regularly order hemoglobin A1c and insulin to detect insulin resistance and pre-diabetes. A person with unexplained weight gain or fatigue can order a thyroid function panel. And individuals can simply monitor their overall health by ordering general health and wellness tests like lipid panels (cardiovascular health), PSA tests (prostate cancer screening), fecal occult blood tests (colon cancer screening), hormone levels (e.g., testosterone, estradiol) and vitamin D. When test results come back abnormal, a doctor’s visit can then be scheduled.

Tomorrow’s Health is an authorized Medical Test Site in the State of Washington. Our CLIA can be found here.

Tomorrow’s Health Provides Cutting Edge Laboratory Testing Capabilities

tomorrows health about our advanced lab testing capabilities

Tomorrow’s Health was started in 2020 to fill the critical need for rapid and accurate COVID-19 PCR testing in the Tri-Cities area. Even during our busiest times, results have always been turned around within the same day or the next day.

Since then, we have expanded our menu to include many of the standard blood tests available. We offer a variety of panels including those that evaluate general health, men’s health, women’s health, cardiovascular health, thyroid function, diabetes, anemia, and more! We offer all of our tests as direct-to-consumer – you can order your own test, you do not need to get a doctor’s order!

Tomorrow’s Health is working on developing a next generation sequencing (NGS) menu of tests as well. We are currently able to sequence the SARS-CoV-2 genome to detect variants, and we are working on a respiratory pathogen panel that can detect hundreds of potential pathogens while evaluating over a thousand antibiotic resistance markers.

Our Vision: We believe that clinical and laboratory medicine must revolutionize the way they do business and vastly improve the care they provide for their patients. To facilitate this, we hope to:

• Continue development of NGS technologies to diagnose infectious diseases, mitigating ongoing pandemics and preventing future pandemics

• Facilitate whole genome sequencing and interpretation for the purposes of preventative and precision medicine.

• Facilitate increased involvement of patients in their healthcare by providing direct-to-consumer testing on all fronts

The revolution is upon us – let’s carry it out together!

Our History

Brent House is the Founder of Tomorrow’s Health. He was a Lieutenant Commander in the U.S. Navy early in 2008, and worked in malaria vaccine and drug development at the Naval Medical Research Center (NMRC) and the Walter Reed Army Institute of Research (WRAIR) in Bethesda, Maryland. Tomorrow’s Health was born out of a conference he attended on the use of human genetic information to help medical professionals make drug treatment information. One of the speakers predicted that within 5 years, the cost to sequence an entire human genome would dip below $1,000.

It was at this point that the vision came to his mind. He imagined a patient going into their clinic, where the clinic not only possessed the patient’s medical history, but also his/her entire genome sequence. The patient’s medical providers would then use the genome sequence to “personalize” the patient’s medical care. As new research became available, it could immediately be applied to each patient’s known genome sequence. This would allow continuous real-time updates of each patient’s “personalized” medical record.

He added to his vision over time the importance of the “personalized” practice of medicine and that it should be focused on preventive (vice reactive) measures. Though the information within the genome certainly can be used in typical reactive medicine, the benefits will more completely be realized in preventive practices.

He knew at the time that it was too early to begin this type of business, but determined that he would start it up when the time was right. That time is now!
