AUSTIN, Texas and MCLEAN, Va., July 22, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Appian (NASDAQ: APPN) and Everlywell, the digital health company offering consumers access to at-home lab tests, are working together to support safe and healthy returns to the workplace and to campus for corporations and higher education institutions. The two companies have signed a partnership integrating Everlywell's at-home collection COVID-19 testing within the Appian Workforce Safety and Appian CampusPass™ solutions.
"Everlywell was founded to give people access to high-quality lab tests that can be taken at home. With the pandemic continuing around us, our mission has never been more important," said Julia Cheek, founder and CEO of Everlywell. "We are proud to support Appian's corporate and academic customers in providing FDA-authorized COVID-19 testing to help keep their students, staff, and customers safe."
Through the partnership, people using Appian's return-to-site solutions will be able to request home delivery of Everlywell's COVID-19 Test Home Collection Kit by taking a simple screening questionnaire based on CDC guidelines. Each test request will be reviewed by an independent physician from Everlywell's third-party telehealth partner. Test results will be delivered to the test-taker's mobile device in as little as 24-48 hours of the sample arriving at an authorized lab. Everlywell's product and its laboratory partners have received Emergency Use Authorization from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The assays used by Everlywell and its lab partners meet or exceed the FDA's performance criteria for COVID-19 test accuracy, and telehealth consultations are included for those with positive results.
Test results can be used in Appian's screening, contact tracing, and isolation processes to maintain the health of reopened workplaces and campuses. Appian is the only enterprise software provider offering the integration of testing within a holistic COVID-19 return-to-workplace and return-to-campus solution.
