AYR, ONT.—DriverCheck, specializing in fitness for duty and occupational medical testing, has released its newest health and safety business service, COVIDdetect which enables organizations to implement and manage DIY testing with Health Canada-approved COVID-19 rapid antigen test kits COVIDdetect in a way that is efficient and easy to monitor.
Introduced in July under its COVID-19 testing division, DC Agile, the web-based program management software is the next evolution of testing for DriverCheck, which has seen its total number of COVID-19 tests exceed 400,000 since the start of the pandemic’s third wave in March 2020 and attain an average of more than 15,000 tests per week, states a release.
To administer the program, organizations enrol participants who are notified by email to register for ad-hoc or regular testing and then dispatched a shipment of a Health Canada-approved rapid antigen test kits via DriverCheck. Participants self-administer their COVID-19 test and enter the result in the COVIDdetect platform. The entire process takes an average of 20 to 30 minutes with real time results provided to both the participant and the organization. COVIDdetect allows the organization to securely store test results, easily monitor compliance and pull reports by region, worksite, specific employee categories or other segments, indicates the release. Participants can download a test result letter with the results of the antigen test.
COVIDdetect is currently available in Ontario, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba and New Brunswick and the company is working to expand coverage to other provinces.
“COVID-19 has created a very difficult environment for businesses to operate in. We are just trying to help by making it easier for our clients to manage their COVID testing programs,” said Connor Page, vice-president of Strategy at DriverCheck and division lead for DC Agile, in a statement. “COVIDdetect has been well received because it’s easy to implement and administer, yet comprehensive enough to manage the complexities of a DIY testing program in today’s changing regulatory environment.”
