This week, U.S. health inspectors revealed that a number of problems were found during an inspection at a major facility belonging to Theranos, the innovation darling of the healthcare space.
"I believe the individual is the answer to the challenges of healthcare," Theranos Founder Elizabeth Holmes said during a 2014 TEDMED conference.
Holmes is the widely-courted wizard of Theranos. She claims the company will revolutionize medicine by making blood tests faster and cheaper, but questions of accuracy have always competed with a practice of secrecy at the privately held company worth billions.
Reed Abelson is a reporter for our partner The New York Times. She says the Theranos controversy began as a clash between nimble Silicon Valley and the bureaucracy of the federal government.
