What You Should Know:
– Chicago-based technology company Evive launched the Evive.Care website, which is helping people find COVID-19 (Coronavirus) testing centers near them.
– The Evive.Care search tool allows people to enter their state and county and then displays a list of nearby COVID-19 testing centers.
– There are currently 240+ testing centers on the website across approximately 200 counties in the U.S.—those numbers are constantly evolving.
Evive, a Chicago, IL-based enterprise benefits engagement provider, announced the launch of the Find A COVID-19 Testing Site website, that is helping people nearby COVID-19 testing centers nationwide. . Within hours of its launch, over 1,200 people found a nearby test center. As an engagement partner to 40+ large enterprises across the nation, Evive is committed to connecting people with resources they need when they need them most—and immediately took action to extend this commitment to everyone during the COVID-19 crisis.
How It Works
Evive.Care provides a search tool for people to enter in their state and county, and with just one click, it displays a list of nearby COVID-19 testing centers. Each result has key details listed with it, including address, phone number, location type, cost, and instructions to make an appointment.
There are currently 240+ testing centers identified on the website across approximately 200 counties in the U.S. The Evive clinical research team is updating the list of centers on an ongoing basis, as they continuously review credible data sources, including government websites of each state, city, and county department of public health. Additionally, Evive is encouraging people to submit other centers that may not yet be listed (contact info to do so is provided on the Evive.Care website).
“This website will help millions of people throughout the U.S. find testing centers,” said Evive CEO Prashant Srivastava. “With the work we do every day to guide people to relevant benefits that will support better health, it only made sense we would work quickly to assemble this much-needed public resource in the midst of the Coronavirus pandemic. We highly encourage everyone to share this link with your family and friends so everybody is empowered with the information they need to get tested.”
“It’s especially important that people share this website with their peers so we can crowdsource even more information,” said Srivastava. The website includes functionality that allows people to easily submit any information they have about other testing centers.
In addition to launching Evive.Care, the company is using its benefits navigation solution, MyEvive, to reach the 4 million+ covered lives within the employee populations of its 40+ employer customers. Evive has identified individuals who meet the high-risk criteria set by the CDC and is sending them notifications to reinforce the relevant resources available through their company’s benefits, promoting population safety.
