7 Keys to Successful On-Site COVID-19 Testing

On-Site COVID-19 testing for schools and employers will be necessary for the foreseeable future. State and federal health officials favor scaling up COVID-19 testing, even of asymptomatic individuals, as a road to reopening schools and workplaces.

Mobile Health is a leading provider of On-Site COVID-19 testing to businesses and academia around the United States. We understand that simply providing COVID-19 testing at a location isn’t enough. To ensure success, we carefully plan every On-Site COVID-19 Testing event to include seven essential components:

  • Adequate staff
  • Plentiful testing supply
  • Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)
  • Site set-up
  • Technology and infrastructure
  • Protocols for positive cases
  • Infection control

These program building blocks not only prevent virus transmission but also help to break down administrative and logistical barriers to testing.


Our On-Site Testing Checklist

We have the expertise to design an end-to-end, effective, and economical testing program, customized to your site and population needs. Disease testing and prevention is what we do – we handle all the testing details so you can focus on your core mission. And we continually innovate and refine our testing approach so we can offer you the most accurate, efficient, and cost-effective solutions.

Read on to see how we address each On-Site COVID-19 testing requirement.

Adequate Staff

We quickly deploy our experienced medical teams to provide COVID-19 testing on-site, at your school or business. We test thousands of employees or students daily, and augment your medical staff, if needed. Our RN site managers oversee all aspects of testing, from patient check-in to results reporting, to ensure everything flows smoothly.

Is your business qualified to hire medical assistants and nurse managers to staff and manage ongoing COVID-19 testing and screening?

Plentiful Testing Supply

As one of the largest providers of on-site COVID-19 testing, we have a reliable testing supply chain. We bring all materials for rapid result or lab-based testing to your location, with results from rapid tests available in as little as 25 minutes. And if you opt for lab-based testing, our partnerships with trusted laboratories ensure rapid turnaround of those results, sometimes in as little as 12 to 18 hours!

Can you afford the down time, stress, and loss of productivity while employees wait days for test results?

Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)

Our teams arrive with full PPE, including gloves, masks, and infection control materials for safe and hazard-free testing. We follow strict sanitizing protocols and oversee biohazardous waste-collection and removal.

PPE shortages have occurred throughout the pandemic – can your suppliers provide emergency PPE should a shortage occur?

Site Set-Up

Before testing begins, we will do an extensive walk-through of your testing site with you to determine optimal setup and identify any logistical hurdles. We’ll be looking at such things as:

  • Patient flow and privacy
  • Emergency exits
  • Power sources and wi-fi
  • Restrooms and staff break space
  • Supply storage
  • Waste removal

We review our extensive on-site checklist with you to ensure you are satisfied with the testing plan. And we review again soon after program launch to make any necessary adjustments.

Do you have the time and resources to handle the extensive planning on-site testing requires? Have you ever set up an on-site medical screening event for your business?

Technology & Infrastructure

We integrate our secure, HIPAA-compliant technology platform into every on-site testing event. This dashboard monitors everything from daily patient health screenings to health department reporting to contact tracing. From the moment testing begins, our technology provides you a real-time snapshot of the health of your business or campus and delivers a steady flow of data.

Can you risk a company data breach or the compromising of workers’ healthcare information?

Protocols for Handling of Positive Cases

During our walk-through, we’ll work with you to develop a procedure for isolation and follow-up of any individuals who receive positive test results. That can include a dedicated waiting area, follow-up testing or a recommendation to visit their healthcare provider. Throughout on-site testing, our goal is to keep your population and environment safe and healthy and prevent virus spread.

How would a COVID-19 outbreak from a single poorly managed positive case impact your business?

Infection-Reducing Practices

The CDC states that COVID-19 testing is most effective when combined with infection-reducing practices like handwashing, social distancing, masking, etc. Our medical teams follow and enforce infection control measures in place at your location as well as perform the necessary sanitation protocols mentioned above.

Are you staying current with continually evolving CDC guidance on reducing COVID-19 spread in the workplace?
