The company will provide free TeleHealth COVID-19 screenings to patients in their own homes in order to determine their ‘Back to Work’ status.
May 12, 2020 —
Bergen County, NJ – Synergy Health Advisors has created an innovative approach to bring COVID-19 testing to New York and New Jersey residents and businesses. Their approach brings COVID-19 TeleHealth screenings by a licensed physician and medically performed testing directly to the patients in the comfort of their homes. Synergy Health Advisors separately offers businesses options to get their employees tested prior to returning to work. As New York and New Jersey plans to reopen, Synergy Health Advisors aims to overcome the hurdles of testing and public safety without increasing the burden on the existing healthcare infrastructure.
During this pandemic, Synergy Health Advisors is providing TeleHealth COVID-19 screenings by a licensed physician at zero cost to improve access to licensed physicians and testing. This also helps identify at-risk individuals in the community more easily. Thereafter, patients can be scheduled for COVID-19 testing, both the nasopharyngeal swab and antibody test, taken by a healthcare professional in the patient’s home environment with results available within 48 hours.
As the country begins to reopen, employers are concerned with the safety of their employees and customers at the workplace. While temperature taking is the most common solution, its effectiveness is limited by its inability to identify those who are asymptomatic yet infected with COVID-19. By offering this program, Synergy Health Advisors is combining testing with risk assessment by a physician to determine “Back-to-Work” status. In using clinical information along with the test for COVID-19, each employee is risk assessed individually prior to returning to work.
“With hospitals nearly overwhelmed and outpatient physicians struggling to care for their patients, Synergy Health Advisors is committed to bringing testing to the community,” said Dr. Sakina Dinani, Chief Medical Officer and Co-founder of Synergy Health Advisors. “We are grateful to be able to help and provide medically performed testing which we believe is the gold standard in maintaining the integrity of the test. Our ability to pivot during this pandemic is representative of our dedication to patient-centric healthcare.”
