Ayub Khattak. Mr. Khattak is Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of Cue Health. Mr. Khattak leads the Cue team of scientists, chemists, statisticians, engineers, and individuals experienced in FDA clearance of diagnostic products. This team is committed to creating a new standard of care in diagnostics, with the ability to bridge the physical to virtual care continuum and benefit everyone by keeping people healthy and productive. Under Mr. Khattak’s leadership, the company developed the Cue Health Monitoring System that enables fast, frequent, lab-quality diagnostics by anyone, anywhere. Cue’s first commercially available product, the Cue COVID-19 Test Kit, provides highly accurate, lab-quality results, directly to connected mobile smart devices in about 20 minutes. The Cue COVID-19 Test was the first FDA-authorized molecular diagnostic test for at-home and over-the-counter use, without physician supervision or a prescription. The idea for Cue was conceived in 2010 when Mr. Khattak and Co-Founder & Chief Product Officer Clint Sever recognized the problems with how the current health structure collects, communicates, and uses health data. They saw the opportunity to create a new model for care and started Cue to create tools that empower healthcare providers and consumers by increasing their access to actionable health data.
