HHS COVID-19 Testing Webinar

National Association for Home Care & Hospice

You are invited to join a webinar this Friday September 25, 2020 from 12:00PM-1:30PM EST for Home Health and Hospice Facilities presented by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to discuss the Abbott BinaxNOW™ test.

On August 27, 2020, the Trump Administration announced the purchase of 150 million rapid COVID-19 tests to be distributed across the country. You are receiving this email because your organization could receive Abbott BinaxNOW™ COVID-19 Ag Card Point of Care (POC) SARS-CoV-2 diagnostic tests from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), if you meet HHS criteria regarding testing prioritization. Training videos, modules, and frequently asked questions (FAQs) for the BinaxNOW™ test can be accessed here on Abbott's website. For questions regarding the BinaxNOW™ test, please call Abbott Technical Services at 1-800-257-9525 or email ts.scr@abbott.com. For shipment issues or questions, email ARDxUSGovernmentSupport@abbott.com.

To assist states, home health agencies, and hospice facilities, HHS will host a webinar with Abbott on September 25, 2020 from 12:00PM-1:30PM EST to walk through the HHS BinaxNOW program, manufacturer's training and introduce the product. The webinar will have a training from Abbott to demonstrate the training tools available and answer questions and representatives from the U.S. Government to speak about the program.
