Lives across all programs
In late 2021/early 2022, the California Department of Health (CDPH) and Primary.Health tested the impact of back-to-school COVID-19 rapid testing on disease spread in about 60 school districts. Today, learnings from that pilot inform our health management solutions for 4,000+ schools.
In the pilot, CDPH trusted Primary.Health to centralize diagnostic data. Together, we provided rapid tests to over 60 school districts and health departments. Beyond antigen and PCR testing, the program focused on health equity by allocating more resources to those with increased exposure to COVID-19.
97.5% of positive tests logged were from asymptomatic participants, which means that without testing, most could have unwittingly exposed students and staff.
Fast-forward to today: Primary.Health leveraged findings from this small pilot to expand our suite of school health management tools in use in 4,000+ California schools: immunization management, OTC testing and vaccinations, and indoor air safety.
