SecureHealth Expands Onsite COVID-19 Testing Beyond Virginia
A study published by researchers at Yale and Harvard Universities stated that a safe way for students to return to campus would be to administer rapid COVID-19 tests every two days and comply with strict behavioral strategies.
FREMONT, CA: Healthcare monitoring and testing company, SecureHealth, announced its decision to expand its large scale COVID-19 testing beyond Virginia. Established during the pandemic by the founders of BetterMed, SecureHealth works with public and private companies, including colleges/universities, to provide operational workflows, supply chain management, procurement, staffing efficiencies, and improving hiring capabilities to provide a large scale successful COVID-19 testing experience. Test results are typically returned within 24 – 48 hours. The company operates independently from BetterMed.
"From back-to-school to hurricane season, there are multiple factors that may impact COVID-19 numbers in the U.S.," said Dr. Mark Rausch, CEO, SecureHealth. "With each circumstance comes potential risk. We can mitigate those risks by offering frequent testing, being observant and providing contact tracing, when needed," Rausch continued. "SecureHealth is pleased to be able to offer our services beyond Virginia." Founded during the pandemic, SecureHealth has administered over thousands of COVID-19 tests to people in Virginia since late March, including students at the University of Richmond, the Greater Richmond Transit Corporation, and workers at top-rated manufacturing facilities.
A study published by researchers at Yale and Harvard Universities stated that a safe way for students to return to campus would be to administer rapid COVID-19 tests every two days and comply with strict behavioral strategies. "Stories are emerging from students who want to get tested but cannot find a local resource to do so," said Rausch. "As a doctor and a parent, I believe academic institutions should have on-campus resources in place to provide testing during this global pandemic." The University of Richmond has been conducting weekly on-campus testing since July and has one of the lowest COVID-19 positive case rates in the state. "There is no-doubt, frequent testing combined with adhering to significant behavioral modifications is the key to success in the fight against COVID-19," Rausch continued. SecureHealth is on a mission to provide healthcare solutions to get individuals safely back into their community and keep them there.
