Democratizing the healthcare system

Pharmacy test-to-treat programs provide patients the ability to go to a single location to be tested and then depending on the result, the patient can pick up their medication at the same time. Test-to-treat programs truly democratizes healthcare by making it more efficient, more accessible, cost effective and more patient friendly.

Fully leverage your expertise

By implementing a test-to-treat program, it allows you, the pharmacist to fully leverage your expertise for this new generation of healthcare delivery.  You can continue to fulfill the role as your community’s most familiar, trusted and accessible medical professional.

New revenue streams for you

Test-to-treat provides new sources of revenue for a retail pharmacy because of its ability to offer more profitable services such as reimbursement for clinical time spent with the patient, test revenue, as well as and increased store traffic driving the value of the basket. Check out the marketing support we offer to help promote these services.

A national movement towards test-to-treat

There is a national movement toward test-to-treat programs in pharmacies. Currently, more and more states allow pharmacists to test-to-treat, with initiatives supporting this concept gaining traction nationally. We created this checklist to help streamline the process from program inception to execution.

  • Review local laws and regulations: check with your state’s State Board of Pharmacy.

  • Develop a business case/marketing plan: contact QuidelOrtho to for assistance with developing a business case and share marketing ideas.

  • Assess space: determine where you can allocate space for point of care consultations and testing.

  • Acquire a CLIA Waiver: a CLIA Waiver is required to perform testing. Apply for the CLIA Waiver by accessing the CMS.gov website.

  • Establish a protocol, logs and processes: set up the program, from the protocol you follow to the process and documentation, based on the unique state requirements. 

  • Build a communication plan: for follow-up with patients, the patient’s healthcare provider (HCP) if available, and the collaborative practice agreement (CPA) provider. 

  • Determine state training requirements: establish a training program that meets the state requirements. Consider recurring trainings in case of turnover. 

  • Perform product training: at QuidelOrtho, we have a robust training program from online to virtual to in-person.

  • Launch your program: with the large support network at QuidelOrtho, you can rest assured that launching your program will be a breeze.
