橙县将基于唾液的COVID-19测试扩展到所有橙县居民

(加利福尼亚州圣安娜)– OC医疗机构(HCA)已与Ambry Genetics合作,为所有奥兰治县居民启动了其在家中基于唾液的COVID-19测试计划的第二阶段。

“第二郡主席米歇尔•斯蒂尔(Michelle Steel)表示:“奥兰治县继续扩大测试范围,并感到高兴的是,它将在年底之前为我们的居民提供500,000个家庭测试套件。

该县的第一阶段家庭测试工具包计划始于2020年11月23日,一直持续到12月6日,在此期间,大约有12,000个工具包提供给受大流行影响最严重的城市-圣安娜和阿纳海姆。在审核了第一阶段的初步成功后的利用率数据之后,奥兰治县监事会测试特设委员会建议HCA立即在全国范围内提供此免费测试服务。

“第一郡副主席安德鲁·杜(Andrew Do)说:“该郡基于唾液的COVID-19测试套件现在可供居住在奥兰治县的所有个人使用-无论他们是否有支付能力或合法居民身份,” “ OC Health Care Agency和我们的医疗服务提供者合作伙伴建立了一个强大的亲自,通过和在家进行测试的系统,以确保居民在我们尝试减慢COVID-19的传播时可以进行测试病毒。”

居住在奥兰治县的人们可以访问ochealthinfo.com/covidtest并注册以免费获取直接运送到家中的测试套件。 Ambry Genetics每天可以处理4,000个测试,并在48小时内完成结果通知。

“当我们的居民等待COVID-19测试结果时,重要的是要记住留在家中并自我隔离。在我们准备好可获得的疫苗之前,最好的方法是扩大测试范围,并进行物理疏远,洗手和适当戴上口罩等非医学预防措施,”我们是最好的选择,”第三区主管Don Wagner表示。

Ambry的COVID计划CARE是根据联邦机构(包括疾病控制和预防中心)的最新指南开发的,是端对端的筛选,测试和结果管理解决方案。这包括:

Ambry的AVA™虚拟助手支持在线健康调查表

在线确定基本的工人身份或医疗必要性标准(症状/暴露等),从而可以进行保险计费或无保险的第三方计费以进行测试,从而确保居民无需付费

符合HIPAA的软件,使用户能够注册他们的测试套件

医疗人员下令进行测试和监督(包括退货和检查结果)

通过Ambry的RT-PCR测试进行病毒测试,使用唾液收集技术,比其他实验室常用的鼻咽拭子更简单,更方便

大多数结果在实验室收到样品后的24小时内直接通过CARE平台报告

“虽然访问互联网和注册电子邮件地址是该计划的重要组成部分,但我们认识到社区成员可能需要帮助以了解不需要这些工具的其他测试选项,”第四区主管Doug Chaffee说。 “我鼓励这些居民致电HCA的健康咨询专线1(800)564-8448,或-如有听力障碍,请致电1(800)801-7100。”

如果在星期一至星期五太平洋时间下午1点之前下订单订购套件,则套件将在第二天到达。对于在星期五太平洋时间下午1点之后或在星期六或星期日的任何时间下的订单,套件将在下周二到达。 Ambry Genetics实验室每个星期一至星期六接收试剂盒,进行测试,并每周7天报告测试结果。

“在反对COVID-19的斗争中,我们继续利用所有可用资源为居民提供方便,可靠的测试,”第五区主管Lisa Bartlett说道。她继续说道:“我们预计,随着该县病例数继续激增,在线测试订购和报告,远程医疗支持以及在家采样的便利性将为OC居民提供更大的支持。”

County of Orange Expands At-Home, Saliva-Based COVID-19 Testing to All Orange County Residents

(Santa Ana, CA) – The OC Health Care Agency (HCA) has launched phase 2 of its at-home, saliva-based COVID-19 testing program with Ambry Genetics for all Orange County residents.

“I am pleased that the County of Orange continues to expand access to testing, and will make 500,000 at-home test kits available to our residents by the end of the year,” said Chairwoman Michelle Steel, Second District.

The County’s phase 1 at-home test kit program began on November 23, 2020 and continued through December 6th, during which approximately 12,000 kits were made available to cities hit hardest by the pandemic – Santa Ana and Anaheim. After reviewing utilization data from the initial success of phase 1, the Orange County Board of Supervisors Testing Ad Hoc Committee recommended that the HCA make this free testing service immediately available countywide.

“The County’s at-home saliva-based COVID-19 test kits are now available to all individuals that live in Orange County – regardless of their ability to pay or their legal resident status,” said Vice Chairman Andrew Do, First District. “The OC Health Care Agency and our healthcare provider partners have stood up a robust system of in-person, drive-through, and at-home testing to ensure residents have access to testing as we try to slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus.”

Those who live in Orange County may visit ochealthinfo.com/covidtest and register to receive a test kit shipped directly to their home at no cost. Ambry Genetics is able to process 4,000 tests each day with a 48 hour turnaround time for notification of results.

“While our residents wait for the COVID-19 test results, it’s important to remember to stay home and self-isolate. Expanded testing and non-medical preventative measures like physical distancing, hand washing, and appropriate wearing of face coverings are our best bet until we have a readily available vaccine,” said Supervisor Don Wagner, Third District.

Ambry’s CARE for COVID Program was developed with the latest guidance from federal agencies, including the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and is an end-to-end screening, testing, and result-management solution. It includes:

Ambry’s AVA™ virtual assistant supporting an online health questionnaire

Online determination of essential worker status or medical necessity criteria (symptoms/exposure, etc.) that enables insurance billing or uninsured third-party billing for the test, ensuring there is no cost for the resident

A HIPAA compliant software that enables users to register their test kit

Medical provider ordered-testing and supervision (including return and review of results)

Viral testing by Ambry’s RT-PCR test using saliva collection for a simpler and more convenient experience than nasopharyngeal swabs commonly used by other labs

Most results reported directly through the CARE platform within 24 hours of receipt of the sample by the lab

“While access to the internet and a registered email address are important components of this program, we recognize that community members may need assistance to learn about other testing options that do not require these tools,” said Supervisor Doug Chaffee, Fourth District. “I encourage those residents to call the HCA’s Health Referral Line at 1 (800) 564-8448 or – or, for the hearing impaired – 1 (800) 801-7100.”

If an online order is placed for a kit by 1 p.m. Pacific Time Monday through Friday, the kit will arrive the next day. For orders placed after 1 p.m. Pacific Time on Friday, or any time on Saturday or Sunday, the kit will arrive the following Tuesday. The Ambry Genetics lab receives kits every Monday through Saturday, runs testing, and reports out test results 7 days a week.

“In our fight against COVID-19, we continue to leverage all available resources to provide convenient and reliable testing our residents,” said Supervisor Lisa Bartlett, Fifth District. “We anticipate the convenience of online test ordering and reporting, telehealth support, and at-home sample collection will provide greater support to OC residents as case counts continue to surge across the county,” she continued.
