Candy, soda, chips, at-home test for gonorrhea?
Don’t look now, but vending machines are changing the way people access essential healthcare products and services.
Vending machines make it easy to dispense needed care 24/7 to hard-to-reach populations. That’s why we work with communities to install vending machines stocked with at-home diagnostic tests, harm reduction supplies and more where communities need them most:
The vending machine as a self-serve community clinic is one of the many ways we’re rethinking the delivery of tech-powered and accessible testing, vaccinations, and other health services to communities. We’re breaking down clinic walls to power healthcare at home, on site, or virtually.
Because when we say “healthcare anywhere,” we mean it.
Primary.Health was founded out of a volunteer effort to protect one small California town at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, and we have grown into a mission-driven company committed to protecting the entire country from all infectious diseases. Read more about our mission and vision and how you can be a part of it.
In late 2021/early 2022, the California Department of Health (CDPH) and Primary.Health tested the impact of back-to-school COVID-19 rapid testing on disease spread in about 60 school districts. Today, learnings from that pilot inform our health management solutions for 4,000+ schools.
97.5% of positive tests logged were from asymptomatic participants, which means that without testing, most could have unwittingly exposed students and staff.
Fast-forward to today: Primary.Health leveraged findings from this small pilot to expand our suite of school health management tools in use in 4,000+ California schools: immunization management, OTC testing and vaccinations, and indoor air safety.
