DENVER, CO – January 11, 2022 – Everside Health, LLC (“Everside”), a leading national direct primary care provider, today announced a partnership with Matrix Clinical Labs (“Matrix”), a Matrix Medical Network® business, to provide clients with at least 100 employees affordable, convenient and self-administered Reverse Transcription Polymerase Chain Reaction (RT-PCR) lab-based COVID-19 tests, as well as at-home antigen tests, in compliance with the U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA)’s Emergency Temporary Standard.

The self-administered tests offer an affordable, safe, accessible, /at-work/at-home option with PCR results available as quickly as 24-to-48 hours. The Solution – which saves employers approximately 66% compared to competing testing services – is available nationwide, and a growing number of companies, non-profits and labor organizations have already signed up.

“At Everside, our goal is to keep workforces healthy and active while reducing the total cost of care for patients and employers alike,” said Everside Health Chief Product Officer, Wes Donohoe. “Our partnership with Matrix furthers that mission by making workplace COVID-19 surveillance testing and OSHA compliance quick, easy and convenient for our clients, and at a fraction of the cost of other testing services.”

Everside’s COVID-19 testing Solution is designed to help large companies, school districts, labor organizations and beyond keep all of their employees safe, regardless of physical location, while maintaining compliance with OSHA’s Emergency Temporary Standard. It is built to accommodate around-the-clock shifts, multiple job sites and other unique needs of workforces. Details of the Solution include:

  • Safe, accessible and convenient: No waiting in line – test kits are shipped direct to the workplace or home and can be delivered anywhere in the United Sates.
  • Easy and efficient: Employees register and self-administer the test, then either ship it back to Matrix’s lab with the pre-paid shipping label or report their result on Matrix’s lab platform. All employer reporting to regulatory bodies is also handled by the Solution.
  • Timely results: Employees can obtain PCR results as quickly as 24-to-48 hours post-test through Matrix’s easy-to-use, self-service portal. All test results are guaranteed to be available within 48 hours.
