SAN DIEGO, CA, September 10, 2021Cue Health Inc. (“Cue Health” or “Cue”), a healthcare technology company, today announced the appointment of David Arida to its executive management team as Chief Operating Officer.

Arida joins Cue from Dexcom, Inc., a leader of diabetes care technology, where he served in multiple senior operational roles since October 2011, serving most recently as Senior Vice President – Global Manufacturing Operations. While at Dexcom, Arida was responsible for managing a worldwide operations organization, launched several generations of state-of-the-art continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) technology, and set up multiple manufacturing sites across the globe to significantly scale the business. Prior to his time at Dexcom, Arida held a number of management, consulting or engineering positions at Alere (now Abbott), Amylin Pharmaceuticals (now AstraZeneca) and PRTM (now PWC).

“David brings deep operational experience, a proven track record of scaling healthcare technology products globally, and a keen focus on operational excellence across all areas of a business,” said Clint Sever, co-founder and Chief Product Officer of Cue. “David’s leadership will be instrumental as Cue continues to bring innovative diagnostic products to market and helps pioneer the digital transformation of healthcare.”

In the United States, the Cue Health Monitoring System, together with the Cue COVID-19 Test Kit, has been authorized both for point-of-care use by healthcare providers as well as for use at home by consumers. Cue was the first-ever U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Emergency Use Authorized molecular-based diagnostic test for over-the-counter sale without a prescription. Cue is already in use by the National Basketball Association (NBA) and the Mayo Clinic, in addition to a range of other clinical and enterprise settings around the country, including schools, essential businesses, nursing homes, hospitals, physicians’ offices, dental clinics, sports and other live event venues, and other settings around the country.

Cue's easy-to-use, portable COVID-19 test provides highly accurate, lab-quality results – including detection of emerging variants – directly to connected mobile smart devices in about 20 minutes, and Cue's natively digital platform allows for end-to-end integrated reporting of test results.
