BD (Becton, Dickinson and Company), has announced a collaboration with ReturnSafe, an all-in-one software solution for COVID-19 employee health, safety and compliance, to integrate the BD Veritor At-Home COVID-19 Test directly within the ReturnSafe testing management platform.
"The BD Veritor™ At-Home COVID-19 Test enables people to test from home, without a proctor, while ensuring verifiable results because test results can only be read using a smartphone," said Dave Hickey, president of Life Sciences for BD. "The test eliminates human subjectivity in reading the result, because there is no guessing game about one line or two, as is sometimes the case with visually read tests. You get a definitive 'POSITIVE' or 'NEGATIVE' digital display that is dated and time-stamped in the app, and reporting of the results to a business or organization can also be fully automated. This combination of interpretation and secure reporting significantly reduces the potential for test results to be manipulated or misreported. The addition of ReturnSafe simplifies and streamlines the management of testing results and workplace health and safety solutions."
The BD Veritor At-Home COVID-19 Test uses a mobile app to interpret and provide a digital display of testing results in 15 minutes. The test is one of the only at-home tests to fully automate reporting of results to federal and state public health agencies and provides a streamlined experience for optional reporting to businesses and schools. The addition of ReturnSafe gives those organizations the insights and tools to manage their testing programs at scale. By using the BD Veritor At-Home COVID-19 Test with ReturnSafe, employers can effectively collect test results, track who has completed testing requirements on time, quickly identify positive cases to act, manage isolation and quarantine workflows, as well as collect data for compliance reporting.
Employees can upload their test results from the comfort of their own home via technology that digitally reads and verifies the result and imports it directly into the ReturnSafe Command Center. This removes the need for proctors or manually reviewing tests uploaded into the ReturnSafe system.
Superhuman, a startup building a faster email experience, is working with ReturnSafe to use the combined solution of its platform and the BD Veritor At-Home COVID-19 Test to manage their enterprise's employee testing status.
