Who We Are
AntiGenTests.com is a project of HealthGPO, and our mission is to provide everyone with access to affordable, accurate Covid testing through our secure, sustainable supply chain, distribution network, and the power of Group Purchasing.
The challenges we face going forward
HealthGPO, through the AntigenTests.com project, is committed to continuing our effort to shorten the supply chain of rapid point of care Covid tests.
THESE ARE JUST SOME OF THE CHALLENGES HEALTHGPO IS WORKING TO ADDRESS:
Inconsistent Supply Chain and global shortages causes price instablility making the tests often unaffordable
Some healthcare providers are dealing with long waiting periods and back ordered requests for more tests
Employers are faced with logistical nightmares for COVID-19 testing.
Medical providers constantly have to find new vendors
Certain government regulated sectors, such as Nursing Homes, Congregate Care and Hospice facilities are mandated to tests their staff and residents/patients a minimum on once per month, but many of them struggle to maintain the necessary supply chain of testing kits.
Expired and Fake (Non-FDA Emergency Use Authorized) tests are all throughout the market
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has issued an emergency temporary standard (ETS) for employers with 100 employees or more for mandatory vaccination or regular COVID-19 testing. There is uncertainty with the ETS and the long term implications of this mandate.
