Recuro Proud to Support 2021 SIIA Annual Meeting: Recuro CEO Michael Gorton Participates on Visionary Panel Exploring Future of Digital Health
SIIA’s 41st Annual National Educational Conference, October 3-5, 2021, Austin, TX was a great opportunity for Recuro Health to support SIIA and for Recuro’s rollout to employers of its multi-prong digital health solution, including COVID-19 antigen testing and vaccine tracking status capabilities. On a voluntary basis to all attendees, Recuro provided rapid COVID-19 antigen tests and a component to track testing status. A complementary program was also introduced that supports vaccine tracking status and images of the vaccine card which are tied to a management portal, making this a robust tool of great value to employers and employees.
Recuro’s COVID-19 rapid testing solution has generated wide receptivity among the nation’s employers, including federal and state governments and corporate healthcare decision-makers. In fact, Recuro was among 12 technology companies selected by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and recognized for developing digital solutions to ensure that COVID-19 diagnostic testing data is efficiently, securely and accurately transmitted to key stakeholders, including federal, state, local and tribal governments, patients, providers, employers, schools, consumers and others.
The need of expanded COVID testing is more than simply acquiring tests. Recuro’s optimal solution leverages eligibility information and supports onboarding, scheduling, test distribution, validation of results and aggregate reporting. This scalable solution embodies a structured, integrated, end-to-end process that delivers more than just bulk testing supplies.
Not All COVID-19 Testing Strategies are the Same
While there are many strategies for COVID-testing available to employers, not all solutions are the same. Recuro launched one of the first comprehensive employer testing platforms for COVID-19, supporting employers with key decision-making and OSHA requirements for employees’ safe return-to-work.

These attributes ensure safe workplaces as the various variants rages across the U.S.

Finding the Optimal Digital Health Solution
The optimal digital health solution can scale and support the traditional healthcare delivery system by advancing integrated care, risk stratification and diagnostics and bringing to reality improved outcomes and more efficient care. The best digital health solution is part of an integrated patient-centered digital medical home strategy like Recuro’s that securely manages the appropriate providers visits, capturing and aggregating the relevant diagnostic information and much more.

It also provides tools, resources and support to manage a host of health conditions.
