Blockit Inc. is making its patient scheduling solution available to any licensed healthcare provider performing COVID-19 testing for free, allowing testing and screening centers to better direct patients to their next point of care.

As healthcare systems requested the tracking capability to improve efficiency during an overloaded time, the company responded. “Our goal has always been to use innovative technology to simplify patient access while improving outcomes and reducing excess work for healthcare professionals,” said Jake McCarley, Blockit’s chief executive officer via release. “With the rapid spread of COVID-19, we want to do our part to effectively route patients to test sites and support organizations struggling to handle the influx of patients on the front lines by offering free access to our scheduling platform.”

Testing centers have popped up all over the country, but making sure the patients make it to their next appointment should they need it can be a challenge. With healthcare resources stretched thin in some areas of the country, efficiency is paramount.
