  1. NantHealth is a sham! Another Theranos sadly… Given all the troubles and shady deals the one in Utah it should have been dissolved and under SEC scrutiny. how they are even viable is beyond belief and simply a con job and CMO’s / CIO’S at academic centers falling for this!

    They should never be associated w/ anything as serious as cancer treatment given the amount of fraudulent activity of their founder.

    sampling of press –

    Soon-Shiong touted “clinical breakthroughs,” but as proof, pointed to a lone research poster, documenting that tumors shrank in one patient after experimental therapy.

    Lee is also under fire for accepting a $12 million donation on behalf of the university from biotech mogul Patrick Soon-Shiong. However, the donation allegedly came with strings: The university was required to spend $10 million with NantHealth on genetic sequencing,

    While Soon-Shiong vehemently denies these claims, further investigations from Stat and Politico found otherwise.

    • Wasn’t aware of their reputation so I’ve applied for a position with them.

      While I saw some crazy job application forms in my life – NantHealth is by far the most idiotic, cretin, imbecile of them all: Hundreds and hundreds of stupid childish unbelievably moronic questions (I’ve stopped counting and stopped applying after the first 100 questions which were only 1% according to their progress bar)
      Like ” and now…let’s read your true mind Monsieur Rorschach” kind of alek tricky questions.

      If you are bored, have a low blood pressure, low heart rate situation, just feel drowsy and you don’t like caffeine – apply to one of NantHealth jobs … and you’ll get the idea what I’m talking about.

      Thanks HIStalk, HIStalk readers and all the other journals for letting me realize that it is just another Theranos…
      BTW – I still get reminders from them on a daily basis to complete the application..
      ;-))
