COVID Management Platform Aims to Become Leader in Emerging Constituent Health Services Industry
January 11, 2022 – Simple Laboratories today announced the launch of Simple Ready, the first end-to-end COVID management solution focused on organizations where people gather – including schools, offices, and venues. The testing and technology platform keeps constituents safe regardless of vaccination status and offers vaccine verification, customized testing, health passes, corporate reporting, and government compliance. Simple Ready is a division of Simple Laboratories LLC.
“In short, we help organizations ensure a safe environment, a healthy staff, and full government compliance – while reducing anxiety and confusion about COVID,” said Narni Yoder, CSO, partner and co-founder of Simple Laboratories. “Whether the mandate is from the government, the board, or employees, every executive knows that COVID management is an essential component in a return-to-work, return-to-office (RTW, RTO) strategy. But it’s still a blind spot for many organizations. We have built an exciting program to solve this problem.”
According to Yoder, Simple Ready offers organizations a number of services in the fight to get people back to work and life:
A comprehensive COVID Management Program including:
- Vaccine status and verification. Constituents can upload vaccine and booster cards and have them verified by experts, before a record of compliance is created
- At-home and on-site testing. Simple Ready can ship skilled health care workers to client locations for testing and collecting OR send self-collection kits to wherever constituents need them.
- PCR and Rapid Tests. Simple Direct offers rapid tests for immediate entry eligibility AND PCR tests for more sensitive results that are regulatorily accepted.
- Travel Services. Simple Ready can work with employees who need to travel to ensure they have what they need to board their planes.
- Communication – Simple Ready has experienced content creators on staff to ensure that Client messaging is effective and well-received.
Simple Ready’s portal (SRP) has been built with Silicon Valley experts to ensure that it is easy to operate and fulfills the spectrum of client needs. Patient registration and scheduling are QR code or link based and require no additional software installation. Clients have simple websites available for watching test orders, viewing results, seeing trends over time, and managing disparate locations. And finally, as government mandate requirements are rolled out, Simple Ready’s portal has API interfaces that will communicate proof of compliance directly with agencies.
A primary tenant of Simple Ready is that organizations should not be engaged in the vaccination debate. “From supply chain issues, to staffing shortages, companies face many issues right now. The last thing they want to be involved with is a debate between vaccinated and unvaccinated members of their work force.” Says Narni Yoder. “Whether vaccinated, sufficiently tested, or both, Simple Ready offers executives the power to know that everyone on their staff is protected (and protecting) without ever wading into the waters of politics.
Simple Ready’s systems, sales staff, couriers, and laboratory are ready and available as of January 10. Our website and sales process make signing up easy and most clients can be up and running within one week of introduction. Furthermore, as industry prices are falling, companies will find Simple Ready’s pricing some of the lowest in the industry. “Prospective clients working with other labs are often surprised to learn that we can offer pricing that is – quite literally – half what they are currently paying”, says Yoder. “And when anticipated legislation materializes that mandates insurance coverage of surveillance testing, we are ready to shift most of those costs away from the Client.”
According to the World Health Organization in a recent brief on SARS-CoV-2, there has been a lack of consistency in policy recommendations surrounding COVID-19 workplace issues. “There clearly is a great need for what Simple Ready offers now and in the future and we are excited to start with a program for Companies to address their COVID challenges in a way that is predictable, pleasant, and productive for their constituents.
