Austin-based medical startup creates 15 minute in-home coronavirus Telehealth test
Date:4/1/2020

A joint venture between mobile health provider AnyPlace MD (APMD) and telehealth developer Reliant Immune Diagnostics (RID), formed earlier this year to bring telehealth to various government agencies, has now focused its attention on the COVID-19 pandemic by creating in-home tests for COVID-19. Company officials are currently?awaiting an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) waiver from the FDA?to?perform?AI?testing in the U.S.

Components of the test have received FDA approval for other point-of-care testing, and?was?successfully used at the epicenter of the pandemic in China.?There are over 50,000 immediate tests ready to deploy and another 500,000 next week and can be manufactured at the rate of 1,000,000 tests a day.??

The specially designed system works with in-home testing kits to cut the patient result time from 2-5 days to 15 minutes by using an AI app on smart phones and tablets. These tests can be applied to the general public, government officials and troops deployed to help with the pandemic.

“Rapid and broad testing is the first and most important step in addressing Covid19,” stated AP-MD cofounder, Charles Schwertner, MD. “It is imperative we know our first responders are not infected.”?

Acknowledging that opinions vary on whether to focus on a cure or containment, “the need for a fast and effective in-home diagnostic solution is the only available means to keep infected or potentially infected patients at home and is the key to slowing and inevitably stopping the pandemic that our nation faces,” said CEO and Founder Shane Stevens.?

“We believe our test and telehealth system is the force multiplier that the U.S Armed Services?and citizen soldiers?need to flatten the curve and maintain medical readiness,” added?Brigadier General (RET) Sean Ryan VP of Military Division.

How it works: Using a preliminary questionnaire through a mobile app, a telehealth provider determines whether a test is needed. The home test kit utilizes a prick of blood mixed with the reagent – a substance added for chemical analysis – and smart technology from a mobile phone.

The telehealth provider reads the AI-driven results – 8 times more accurate than the human eye – and the patient then receives their COVID-19 test results so they can take responsible action immediately.

The patient’s mobile phone or tablet automatically connects to a telemedicine provider to review results, go over findings, and develop a treatment plan. Follow up sessions can be made virtually, and prescriptions can be delivered from their local pharmacy.
