Be the hero that brings testing – and peace of mind – to your patients and staff.

These are unprecedented times. Families in your community are anxious and worried. One major cause of this anxiety is the lack of rapid and safe testing for COVID-19 – especially for those patients who are experiencing potential symptoms.

Of course patients who think they may have COVID-19 are rightly concerned about going to an urgent care clinic or hospital right now. Even if they're not infected with COVID now, they could be by the time they get home!

So the only solution that makes sense is in-home testing. And by partnering with TealHeal you can be the hero that brings this urgently needed service.

But TealHeal helps you do more than just test for COVID. Our system supports you in triage to determine if the patient actually needs hospitalization. It also enables you to immediately begin treatment and monitoring for those patients who prefer to begin healing at home.

As the leading innovators in home-based urgent care, we are dedicated to helping physicians cope with this challenge and deliver results – and peace of mind – to their patients and staff. Contact TealHeal today to request more information and get started.

  • All major blood chemistry parameters. Same day results. No phlebotomy needed
Test

Test for SARs-CoV-2 at home with immediate results: simultaneous testing of the presence of virus in nasal swab (BioFire PCR tests provided through our partners at Corona Pathology) and anti-bodies in the patient’s blood (Cellex anti-COVID-19 IgM/IgG) 

Cellex COVID test

  • Preliminary results in 15-20 minutes

You can also send a sputum sample to our partner lab to get highly accurate RT-PCR results for all common pathogens and  their resistance to antibiotics

The cost of the test in covered by CMS and all major insurances.

  • 99% accurate results in 24 hours
  • Check for resistance 
  • No culture needed
Gather All Critical Data

Know all the vital blood parameters needed to fully understand your patient's case – usually available only in hospital setting: CBC, blood metabolic panel, CRP, procalcitonin, blood gases, etc.

 

  • Results in 15 min
  • Self - blood collection tool (micro-needle patch technology) - closed, single-use system, no cross-contamination
  • Small sample is enough for POC testing

Monitor

TealHeal lets you provide reliable and simple-to-use tools for monitoring vital signs and sending data to you for review. This allows you to keep patients at home if safe and appropriate, or recommend further treatment or hospitalization if needed.

  • All-in-one device  to measure temperature, SpO2, respiratory rate, heart rate, 1-lead ECG and BP
  • FDA approved 

 

AI Support

Our powerful AI helps you to connect the dots: a machine learning algorithm matches test results, vital signs measurements, reported complaints and history of present ilness to identify patients with the highest risks. 

 

  • Schmitt-Thompson COVID-19 telephone triage protocols – the gold standard
  • Rothman index COVID-19 – established predictor of patient’s decline
  • Automatic alerts

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) About the TealHeal COVID-19 System

The company is partnering with Corona Pathology to provide both a RT-PCR test to detect the presence of virus RNA and Cellex serological tests approved by the FDA, to provide qSARS-CoV-2 IgG/IgM Rapid tests. These tests are limited to laboratories certified under the Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA) to perform moderate and high complexity tests.

We use a Lateral Flow Chromatographic immunoassay for the detection of IgM and IgG antibodies. Positive results for both IgG and IgM could occur after infection and can be indicative of acute or recent infection. We also use a COVID-19 real-time reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (rRT-PCT) test for the qualitative detection of nucleic acid from SARS-CoV-2.

Immediately following the outbreak, some companies quickly launched simple home-testing kits to capitalize on this situation. The FDA has stopped those products until the vendors can show their products accurately detect the virus. Accurately testing for coronavirus with current PCR technology involves several steps, including carefully swabbing the nose or throat to collect a sample, placing it in a sterile tube, storing it below 46 degrees Fahrenheit and then shipping it to a lab within three days. Health officials warn that a number of things could go wrong if consumers try to swab, store and ship their own samples, potentially resulting in testing errors and undetected infection. This is why the TealHeal in-home solution, where a nurse or doctor administers the test, is both effective and FDA-approved.

Tests take less then 15 minutes to get preliminary results, with full results typically available in 24 hours.

The TealHeal solution is ideal because:

  • It allows the patient to #stayhome
  • Can be performed multiple times
  • Requires minimal training for nurses/technicians

TealHeal provides palm-size portable vital signs monitors.

BodiMetrics™ VitalsRx captures all vital signs in less than a minute. Records and reports to you with hospital – grade accuracy:

  • Temperature
  • SpO2
  • BP
  • Respiratory Rate
  • Heart Rate
  • 1-lead ECG
  • You can also prescribe VitalsRx for continuous monitoring:
  • Blood Oxygenation (SpO2 and Pulse Rate for up to 15 hours); 
  • ECG (24 hour Holter) monitoring, recording and reporting. 

Important differentiator: your patient's data will automatically populate the SOAP note and will appear in your e-Visit or Video-call report.
