PDHI Powers Drive-Thru COVID-19 Testing
PDHI’s ConXus Platform is providing the technology that powers eTrueNorth’s pharmacy drive-thru COVID-19 testing program. As part of a public-private partnership, eTrueNorth is working in conjunction with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, local municipalities, and national pharmacy chains to provide drive-thru COVID-19 testing locations in areas of need across the country.
The ConXus Platform allows participants to find a testing location, register for testing, schedule an appointment, and review results. PDHI is also coordinating data exchange with processing laboratories and the delivery of daily aggregate result reports to HHS and state health departments.
“PDHI has provided enabling technology for our pharmacy wellness screening and gaps-in-care-closure programs since 2018,” says Coral May, President and CEO at eTrueNorth. “I was confident that they had the flexibility and scalability to support this drive-thru testing program on an aggressive timeline.”
Testing locations are by appointment only at selected pharmacies and other sites supported by pharmacy-staffed mobile units. A list of testing locations and sites opening soon can be found at www.DoINeedACOVID19Test.com.
“Increasing availability of testing for local communities is a critical mission in these challenging times,” says Jennifer Jolley, PDHI CEO. “The team at PDHI is proud to support eTrueNorth and their local pharmacy partners who are providing these much-needed healthcare services.”
