Davies MedClinic’s fleet of 45 mobile covid-19 testing vehicles, capable of conducting 400,000 combined tests daily, paired with the Davies Passport App, have already deployed to businesses across the nation. The team now looks ahead to expand its fleet to 300 units to assist with a nationwide covid-19 vaccine roll-out once it is made available to the general public.
The San Antonio, Texas-based company has assembled a fleet of mobile covid-19 testing units of various sizes with the capacity to mobilize and administer painless antigen rapid tests, PCR tests, and antibody tests on site anywhere in the United States. They deliver the results and date of testing electronically to the patient, their employer, the CDC, and any other pertinent approved party through the Davies Passport App using a barcode and information provided by the patient.
Results for rapid antigen tests are delivered in 15 minutes, while the PCR results take from 24 to 48 hours. The Passport App, which meets HIPAA standards, works across iOS, Android, and internet platforms enabling employers, airlines, dining and entertainment venues, churches, schools and universities, shopping malls, and anywhere else people congregate to maintain an accurate database of positivity rates as well as help keep the need for quarantining while awaiting test results to a minimum. Mobile testing is also a great way to keep a fast and accurate account of the positivity rate of employees, visitors, and residents in both nursing homes and jails and prisons, known to be hotspots.
Davies MedClinic’s fleet, which was recently featured on the docu-reality series “Built for Business,” is comprised of vehicles ranging from a 57-foot mega truck capable of housing a full testing command center to an 8-foot mini trailer. Each vehicle is temperature controlled, capable of rapid deployment, and can operate both as part of a mass testing team, or as a standalone. The partners are projecting a fleet of 300 such vehicles by 2021.
The partners behind Davies MedClinic see mobile medical services as the future of community medicine, as these fleets can bridge the gap between over-crowded facilities with staff shortages and under-served communities far beyond the needs that the current pandemic has uncovered.
