United Medical Equipment Business Solutions Network distributes rapid antigen tests and comprehensive telehealth solutions that allow providers to work more proficiently, health-care systems to work smarter and patients to live healthier lives. Through the provision of COVID-19 rapid kit testing, UME is helping to maintain safety and health during a global pandemic.
Rapid antigen testing provides critical answers and insight to health-care and essential workers as they continue to come into contact with potential cases daily, monitoring their day-to-day health becomes crucial. Symptoms present differently with some individuals being asymptomatic. Having access to rapid kits allows facilities to develop a standard for monitoring health and lowering the spread of COVID in the workplace and larger community.
Even with the expanding vaccination program, the United States is still far from herd immunity. Herd immunity happens when the majority of people in the community have had the vaccine, allowing those who are unable to be vaccinated also to be protected. To move forward and away from the current health pandemic, 50% to 90% of the population needs to be vaccinated. The large gap in the percentage is because the virus is still relatively new and more data needs to be collected. The most recent reporting states that it is closer to 90% who need to receive the vaccine to reach this goal (https://ibn.fm/eaLjM).
While the United States is eagerly promoting vaccination, there are several reasons why herd immunity is a moving target. This includes varying beliefs around vaccinations throughout the country, the emergence of new variants of SAR-CoV-2 and accessibility of the vaccine.
In the meantime, rapid testing kits provide fast answers. Facilities can set up monthly tests as well as testing when exposure is suspected. Rapid tests also increase the safety of travel. Many are taking tests before domestic flights. Doing so helps remove the virus from the environment, ensuring the safety of fellow travelers.
According to the CDC’s website, “the incubation period (the time from exposure to development of symptoms) of SARS-CoV-2 and other coronaviruses (e.g., MERS-CoV, SARS-CoV) ranges from 2-14 days” (https://ibn.fm/6aOAM). This means an individual could be contagious before actually knowing they have been exposed. Rapid testing kits are the answer. They identify the virus quickly, eliminating the need to quarantine while waiting for the results and allowing vital personnel to get back to work.
From the beginning of the pandemic, UME moved quickly to address the unique testing needs created by COVID-19. The company acted as a trusted senior referral source for senior care living communities such as independent and assisted living, hospice and memory care. In addition to being a trusted supplier of FDA-approved COVID-19 rapid kits, UME also supplied personal protective equipment (“PPE”) with flexible payment options and provided comprehensive telehealth solutions.
UME has been and continues to be committed to addressing the demand of essential resources during today’s global pandemic climate.
