Partnership provides end-to-end employee COVID-19 remote testing programs through the Rocket Doctor platform.
TORONTO, Jan. 11, 2022 /PRNewswire/ – Rocket Doctor has teamed up with British Columbia’s CMH Heli-Skiing & Summer Adventures (CMH) and Ontario’s Blue Mountain Ski Resort (BMR) to offer virtually proctored rapid antigen COVID-19 tests to their employees. Rocket Doctor has developed an end-to-end testing program that combines on-site rapid antigen tests with fully licensed providers through their proprietary HIPAA/PHIPAA compliant telehealth platform.
Under the arrangement, CMH and BMR employees will book virtual testing sessions with a registered healthcare provider utilizing Rocket Doctor’s 24/7 patient care coordination team and online booking portal. A licensed practitioner meets each employee virtually and provides real-time guidance on how to correctly take the rapid antigen test, before verifying the results 15 minutes later.
Test results will be confidentially recorded and employees who test positive for COVID-19 will be advised to self-isolate and follow any additional testing requirements and procedures in accordance with the local public health guidelines. They will also have access to comprehensive virtual care with Rocket Doctor physicians. The service is free to patients who have provincial health insurance.
“Remote health monitoring and testing is integral to our vision for what providing high quality comprehensive virtual care looks like going forward. We are proud to partner with Canadian Mountain Holidays and Blue Mountain Resort to rapidly deploy a robust end-to-end COVID-19 testing program,” said Dr. William Cherniak, CEO and Co-Founder of Rocket Doctor. “The program will help keep employees and guests safe and should allow both organizations to maintain their operations as we navigate the next few months of the pandemic”.
“Our testing partnership with Rocket Doctor provides us with an additional layer of peace of mind in our operations. As a leader in the heli-ski industry for more than 55 years, the health and safety of our guests and staff is a cornerstone of everything we do,” said Rob Rohn, CMH President and COO.
