GoGetTested, an end-to-end COVID-19 response platform, has exited beta after administering more than 200,000 tests. The technology currently is available in Arizona, South Carolina, Washington, DC, Texas and Kansas.
The comprehensive testing solution offers free, FDA-approved testing, reportedly delivering quick and accurate results. The organization partners with local communities to facilitate ease of use and increased access, regardless of geographic or socioeconomic status.
The platform is the result of a collaborative effort, with a number of companies pitching in to develop the system and expand access in the country.
“GoGetTested is a consortium of private and public companies who came together to help the country get through the pandemic,” Mohammad Gaber, CEO of contributing firm Wellpay and founding partner, explained to Outsourcing-Pharma. “By designing, building, and deploying a rapid COVID response operating system, GoGetTested can quickly deploy an end-to-end testing experience wherever needed.”
The operating system is designed to provide a simple-to-manage digital experience for health professionals as well as consumers. Residents can schedule a COVID-19 test appointment online, take an oral swab or saliva sample test quickly at a testing site, then have results delivered via text or email within 48 hours; in the event of a positive test, a medical professional reaches out to discuss results and walk through next steps.
In the event a community already has testing facilities in place, the ‘lab-agnostic’ GoGetTested platform can integrate with existing platforms.
"Our team has worked around the clock to develop the most innovative COVID-19 testing platform in the country--and one that provides a playbook for building out a public/private health infrastructure,” said Gaber. “Our mission, since day one, has been to help as many citizens as possible and deliver the most accurate results; we believe that technology can play a critical role in the public health infrastructure of the future, our early results show what a modern digitally enabled public health experience can do to improve the health of our communities.”
While the company continues to expand its scale, GoGetTested will continue to seek out partnerships. It has joined forces with clinical research firm Science 37 to help support continuing vaccine clinical trials.
“Our partnership with Science 37 will support the research behind the vaccine’s efficacy. In addition, GoGetTested will also be supporting the scaled administration of the COVID-19 vaccine, utilizing its technology platform to ensure end-to-end vaccine and administration integrity,” Gaber commented.
