We help organizations maximize limited resources by automating, streamlining, and organizing cost-effective testing and vaccination programs at scale.
In partnership with Public Health Institute, and funding from the California Endowment and Ballmer group, Primary.Health is supporting the Safely Opening Schools (SOS) pilot. The SOS pilot is an eight-week program that promotes rapid antigen testing twice weekly in 10 elementary and middle schools throughout California with the intention of safely reopening schools.
We work with the best science available to expand access and lower the cost of COVID-19 testing and vaccination for your state’s schools program.
Primary.Health works with state and county offices of education to set up affordable, efficient testing programs at scale. Individual school districts and private schools should contact their county and state education agencies to discuss making Primary.Health’s services available to all participating districts.
Yes, Primary.Health automates the reporting process for all test results and vaccinations to state and county databases. We also automatically notify participants of their results and provide digital copies of test results and vaccination records.
Primary.Health’s platform supports all different types of COVID-19 testing and vaccination. Your school district may have access to rapid antigen, PCR, LAMP, or other types of COVID-19 testing. We also support any brand of COVID-19 vaccine. If you do not have access to test kits, Primary.Health can refer you to recommended labs and suppliers.
It depends on the type of testing your school district chooses to use. For rapid antigen tests, most participants self-swab about one inch inside the nose (anterior nasal). For saliva PCR testing, children and adults will spit into a tube or cup up to the fill line. As other types of testing come to market, Primary.Health will work to incorporate them into our platform.
Primary.Health empowers school districts to run their own testing programs. This reduces costs and avoids extra people coming onto your campus. Primary.Health will help train school nurses, administrators, and teachers on how to run efficient, convenient testing programs.
Primary.Health’s software works on any Internet-connected device (tablet, laptop, smartphone) using any web browser (Chrome, Internet Explorer, Firefox). For laptops, we recommend a USB-connected webcam. For tablets and smartphones, you will use your device’s camera.
Primary.Health will work with your local health agency to support teacher/staff vaccination clinics. We do not have access to vaccine supply. We will also provide playbooks and consult on how to run a smooth and efficient vaccine clinic in your school’s parking lot, gymnasium or other setting using our software to register for vaccine appointments and ensure all CDC and state reporting is completed.
For both rapid and PCR tests, we recommend participants swab and go. It is much safer than staying in the room waiting for your test results. Most districts will be able to perform about 40-50 rapid tests per hour with one tester and one helper. PCR testing takes even less time, but you do not get the results right away.
Yes, Primary.Health provides daily, weekly, and monthly reports with detailed statistics and analytics to help track any outbreaks, patterns, or irregularities in your testing program. Our dashboards help inform stepped up safety protocols and can facilitate contact tracing.
