ATLANTA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--As the demand for COVID-19 testing continues to rise throughout the United States, a new website launches to help individuals locate a testing site near them. Today, CareTech LLC, launches CareNearby.com. This website will allow first responders, healthcare professionals, essential workers, and the general public, who have been referred for testing, to quickly search for COVID-19 testing sites near their location.
With a surge in the number of COVID-19 cases across the country, the capacity to locate testing centers quickly is a beneficial tool for those individuals who need to be tested. Along with other guidelines established by the CDC, testing when recommended may help curb the spread of COVID-19.
As laboratory tests identifying the COVID-19 virus become more available, there is a growing need to locate community-based testing centers quickly for those affected. This website will be a dedicated resource in the effort to fight the viral epidemic in the United States.
According to Co-founder, Dr. M. Bud Lateef, MD, “The COVID-19 outbreak has brought many unprecedented challenges. Although most people will not need testing, the ability to find testing sites for COVID-19 should not be a barrier when testing is needed.” Dr. Lateef explains, “While COVID-19 continues to affect our fellow Americans, we wanted to help by utilizing our knowledge in healthcare and technology to provide the public an essential free service in time of need.”
With a dedicated team working around the clock, CareNearby.com has over 1500 COVID-19 testing sites identified and is constantly adding newer sites, updating existing ones, and encouraging testing centers to self enroll.
CareTech, LLC, a Healthcare Software Start-Up, welcomes and encourages local and state health departments, as well as individual users to join in our efforts by providing information via our website at www.CareNearby.com. Users can also register to add test sites if one is not listed or can email them at email@example.com to have it listed on their portal.
Co-founded by Dr. M. Bud Lateef, MD and backed by venture capital firm, Limelight Capital, LLC, CareNearby.com is a healthcare website with a robust search engine built to cater to the needs of individuals seeking information on healthcare services near them. With a focus to serve organizations, providers, and consumers, the website aims to be a resource to navigate and select different types of healthcare facilities and services nearby quickly.
