Radish Health, a NYC based telehealth company that offers access to high quality medical care at the workplace, announces the launch of an FDA approved at-home COVID-19 test kit for its New York City client partners this week.

NEW YORK, March 19, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- "We wanted to solve the challenges of safely getting testing for COVID-19 in a timely and efficient manner," said Dr. Viral Patel, Founder of Radish Health. "A reliable at home testing kit that can be processed quickly allows us to give our patients the care and peace of mind they need in the comfort of their own home, while maintaining the health of the general public."

Members can make an appointment with a Radish Health doctor through their member portal to determine if they need to be tested for COVID-19. Once confirmed, the test kit will be couriered to the member's location the same day. Once the test kit is in hand, the member follows Radish's simple guide to self collect their sample and place it into a return package. The courier will pick up the package and deliver to our lab partner, Lenco Diagnostic Laboratory. Patients will be called with their test results in 24-36 hours and advised if they need to continue to self-quarantine.

After a short test period, Radish plans to make this test kit available to all New Yorkers at a cost of $100 (plus the cost of the lab which will be covered by your insurance). "We plan on donating all profits to COVID-19 vaccine research," said Dr. Patel.

Radish Health continues its efforts to offer convenient and quality patient care with simple, relationship based medical services. Offering a two part primary care model, Radish Health partners with employers to provide care to their employees via in-office pop up clinics and virtual follow up care appointments, with the ability for an in-person home visit by a medical assistant, when required.
