1health Helps Organizations Bridge the Testing Supply Gap

1health, a nationwide network of clinical laboratories and kit providers, is helping employers overcome testing supply issues with consistent, timely, and competitively priced COVID-19 testing solutions.

The spread of the Omicron virus has put a strain on the US COVID-19 testing supply chain with organizations ramping up their test demand to safeguard employees and individuals pulling on tests as case numbers soar.

To help make tests more available to the public, the Biden administration recently announced their intent to purchase 500 million COVID-19 testing kits, which they will provide for free to American citizens.

However, 500 million kits amounts to less than 2 tests per citizen. Therefore, while the solution will help individuals, it will not help organizations looking to support ongoing testing programs to minimize their population’s risks.

Further, the initiative will pull rapid tests from an already strained supply chain making it even more difficult for organizations to source the tests they need.

1health, a leading network of clinical laboratories and kit providers, is set to help bridge the gap. Through their nationwide partners, 1health accesses an extensive portfolio of COVID-19 tests including rapid over the counter and point of care tests as well as PCR options. And through their reach, they are often able to provide testing at a fraction of the typical cost and with equivalent-or-better turnaround times.
