COVID-19 Reporting for Public Health Agencies from Redox

Posted January 20, 2021

When the pandemic struck, the highest need became finding a centralized way to conduct COVID-19 reporting and COVID-19 test results to state health agencies nationwide. Redox met that need, and we now support a mix of companies new to state reporting. In this effort, Redox has created the only reusable network for sending COVID-19 results to state health departments. It is designed to allow organizations to scale nationwide as quickly as they can get approval from each state.

Redox provides an efficient way for healthcare developers to deliver integrated products that make the lives of patients and providers better. This usually involves directly connecting to healthcare organizations, EHR APIs, and national networks, such as Carequality. But we’ve found yet another way to apply our fully integrated solution for COVID-19 results reporting.

Scaling Test Reporting

State health agencies are pivotal in providing a centralized way to track COVID-19 results and reporting positivity rates.  The most efficient way to do this is via Electronic Lab Reporting, or ELR, which allows companies providing testing to automate sending results and eliminates the need to dedicate resources to manual reporting processes, such as faxing, online lab portals, secure emails, and spreadsheets.
