SAN DIEGO, September 28, 2021 (Newswire.com) - OmeCare and LifeSite have launched a synergistic partnership that combines COVID-19 testing with a test and vaccination status management solution for events, organizations, and companies of all sizes.
The partnership provides a turnkey approach for workplaces, schools, major conventions, and other group events looking to ensure safety and meet governmental mandates for students, staff, employees, and event participants. The solution encompasses deployment, testing, and test administration, combined with fast turnaround of lab results - all viewable in real-time through a comprehensive management dashboard.
As an initial screening, on-site rapid antigen tests provide patients with results within minutes, while more extensive RT-PCR testing is provided to individuals testing positive. For incoming travelers who require inbound or outbound RT-PCR testing, the joint service will provide worry-free solutions for traveling attendees onsite or at the host hotel.
The partnership offers organizations with a variety of COVID-19 testing options:
- Antigen on-site and monitored nasal swab test: results received in 10 minutes
- PCR at-home saliva test: results received in 24-48 hours
- PCR on-site and monitored saliva test: results received in 24-48 hours
- A comprehensive student, attendee, employee dashboard for test results, vaccination status tracking and compliance reporting
"Many customers are looking for full solutions that combine both onsite rapid antigen testing and PCR tests to ensure the highest level of compliance and safety. We are pleased to be working with the LifeSite team, who has the infrastructure, solutions, experience, and front-line staff to provide A-Z service offerings," said Hartley Miller, Chief Revenue Officer of OmeCare.
"As we service schools, corporations, and events across the country, it is comforting to add OmeCare's California CLIA/CAP-accredited laboratory to our lab network," added Chris Wong, Chairman and CEO of LifeSite.
