April 27, 2020 – West Chester, PA – MedTek21 today announced that COVID-19 diagnostic testing is now available through the MedTek21 software and operations platform for both new and existing customers. MedTek21 partners will now be able to order and manage these diagnostics in the same workflow as their personalized medication management and other advanced diagnostic programs. MedTek21 has partnered with AccessDx Laboratory to ensure coast-to-coast availability of certified COVID-19 infection diagnostics, as well as IgG antibody testing, for all MedTek21 long-term care, health system, private practice, and corporate customers.
COVID-19, also known as the novel coronavirus, has been shown to be highly transmissible and presents significant danger to chronic, elderly, and other at-risk populations. In addition to standard disease control protocol, testing and quarantine polices to minimize the spread of COVID-19 is essential amongst high-risk populations. Multiple local, county, and state health organizations have recommended or mandated expanded testing for at-risk employees, patients, and communities.
“We are proud to have MedTek21 play a contributing a role in helping to diagnose and slow the progression of COVID-19 within highly at-risk populations,” said Dave Copas, co-founder of MedTek21. “Our technical, operations, and laboratory partner teams have been working diligently to fast-track availability order to help our customers adequately prepare, address, and remediate the dissemination of COVID-19 within at-risk populations.”
Existing MedTek21 customers will automatically be notified via a software update of their ability to order and manage COVID-19 testing through their existing dashboards. Any customers wishing to accelerate availability or with any additional questions on the testing program should contact their MedTek21 operations team at COVID@medtek21.com.
