Companies nationwide are challenged with ensuring safe and healthy work environments for their people as the pandemic persists. To help employers respond, Welltok has partnered with Safe Health Systems, Inc. and Prevenna to make it easier for employers to provide on-site and at-home screening and testing options for COVID-19.
Now available through Welltok’s Connect Partner Ecosystem, these new COVID diagnostic test offerings can be implemented as standalone programs, an augmentation to any benefits program or integrated into an existing wellbeing platform. All options feature Welltok’s multi-channel outreach and engagement technology to drive utilization of the COVID screening and testing offering as well as simplified contracting and reporting.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) advises that companies resuming normal or phased operations should conduct daily health checks of employees. However, only 40% of employees report being consistently screened for work. Employers need the ability to provide convenient screening options and dedicated on-site or at-home testing with professional diagnostics and prescriptions. It is critical for a quick response when an employee becomes symptomatic or has been exposed to COVID to avoid spreading it to others.
“Screening, specimen collection and testing for infectious diseases has traditionally been done in a clinical setting. There are specific skill sets and infrastructure that are generally required to perform high quality testing, which make it impractical or impossible for companies to attempt on their own. Safe Health Systems has recreated the patient-provider-testing interactions in a way that increases access at multiple levels, and Welltok is helping to get the word out about it,” said Alan S. Young, MD MBA PMP, Chief Medical Officer at Safe Health Systems.
