PWNHealth Announces Expanded National Effort to Improve Access to COVID-19 Testing

·3 min read

Company passes 10MM test milestone while dramatically increasing capacity for 2021 with additional test types, lab partners, and clinical staff

PWNHealth (PWN), a national clinician network and leading provider of diagnostic testing solutions and telehealth services, today announced an expansion of its COVID-19 testing initiative. Since April 2020, PWN’s platform has supported more than 10 million COVID-19 polymerase chain reaction (PCR), antibody and antigen tests. With support for at home, drive-thru and point of care options, PWN is playing a pivotal role in the nation’s efforts to scale testing by providing the technical, clinical and operational infrastructure needed to seamlessly stand-up programs where they are needed most, and is tripling its capacity over the coming months.

From the onset of the pandemic, PWN has bolstered national COVID-19 testing efforts through clinical oversight, lab connectivity, results management and care delivery for a broad array of government, pharmacy and lab partners across the U.S., Puerto Rico and the District of Columbia.

PWN connects individuals with licensed clinicians and healthcare professionals to review results and recommend additional actions as needed. To date, more than 450K Americans with a positive or indeterminate result have received clinical support and guidance from PWN to ensure they know what to do next. This end-to-end service commitment has resulted in a patient Net Promoter Score of 79, demonstrating a superior level of satisfaction from participants receiving PWN-backed testing. Additionally, PWN reports testing data back to county and state Departments of Health. This connectivity ensures optimal data integrity and turnaround times for contact tracing, a key step to stop the spread of the virus.

"While access to testing is a critical component of the country’s COVID-19 mitigation effort, testing is only as effective as the patient comprehension and response that follows. Our emphasis on informed patients cannot be overstated, as it is the education and clinical consultation that ensures testing programs achieve the best possible outcomes for participants," said Sanjay Pingle, CEO of PWNHealth.

In September 2020, PWNHealth launched its COVID-19 testing dashboard to highlight key testing trends among local and national demographics. To date, PWN-supported PCR and antigen tests have returned a 5.4 percent positive rate.
