Castlight Health Powering Nevada’s Statewide COVID-19 Testing Site Directory
Jun 4, 2020
Directory Now Includes More Than 60 Sites in Nevada
SAN FRANCISCO – June 4, 2020 – Today Castlight Health, Inc. (NYSE: CSLT) announced it has partnered with the Nevada Department of Health and Human Services to launch a statewide directory of COVID-19 testing sites. The directory currently includes 61 testing sites across the state, and will enable Nevadans to identify the closest testing site, its contact information, and the requirements to receive a test at each location. As Nevada continues with phase two of reopening, it will be critical for residents and employers to have up-to-date information about testing capacity.
“So much of the critical work being done to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic is happening at the state and local levels, and our team is leveraging our wealth of healthcare data to build resources that can support their efforts. Not only will access to our test site finder help Nevadans find their nearest testing site, it can also inform retail clinics and pharmacies as they determine the most impactful areas to open new testing facilities, helping give the state an accelerated path to safely reopening,” said Castlight Health CEO, Maeve O’Meara.
The Nevada directory reflects Castlight’s effort to make its comprehensive national testing site directory widely available through state governments and other organizations. Castlight created the resource by working with public health departments, provider systems, and third-party sources across the country to compile the data. Castlight is now powering the testing site directories for state entities, including Michigan Department of Health and Human Services and the New York State Department of Health; companies like Ford Motor Company; and its data is now integrated into Google Search results.
“Identifying and isolating positive COVID-19 cases through widespread testing will be integral to our success in keeping residents safe and healthy as we reopen Nevada for business,” said Julia Peek, Deputy Administrator of Community Health Services at the Nevada Department of Health and Human Services. “We are excited to offer this resource so that Nevadans can easily learn whether they might need a test and where they can find one.”
Organizations, including state and local governments, interested in embedding Castlight’s testing site directory or accessing Castlight’s COVID-19 data should contact Matt Moran at [email protected].
