Your Partner through COVID-19 and Beyond

Adapting to changes brought about by the pandemic has been challenging. Employers and employees need assistance with COVID-19 vaccinations, as well as guidance with testing, screening, remote worker well-being and on-site safety protocols. We can help to quickly and safely provide support.

Vaccination:

Populytics’ services to businesses are aligned with Lehigh Valley Health Network (LVHN). LVHN strictly adheres to the PA Department of Health’s phased vaccine approach, as this ensures a continuing supply of vaccine from the state. LVHN’s vaccine information can be found here.

The best way for employers to help their employees enter the queue for COVID-19 vaccination is to advise them to create a MyLVHN account. They will receive a notification when they are eligible for the vaccine and can schedule their vaccine appointment on MyLVHN. They also can schedule an appointment by calling 833-LVHN-CVD (833-584-6283).

COVID-19 Vaccines for Essential Workers. Sign in to MyLVHN, click “Menu” and complete the “COVID-19 Essential Worker Questionnaire” to be put in the queue for vaccination. More information here.

COVID-19 Vaccines for People Age 18-64 with Qualifying Medical Conditions. If you are a new patient, enroll in MyLVHN, click “Menu” and complete the “COVID-19 Ages 18-64 Vaccine Request” to be put in the queue for vaccination. Current LVHN patients with MyLVHN accounts are automatically placed in the queue. More information here.

Testing and Screening Services:

COVID-19 Return to Work Evaluations and Examination.  This exam evaluates employees or other individuals who have tested positive for COVID-19 to determine if it is safe for them to return to work or school.

COVID-19 Diagnostic Testing. The PCR test or “swab test” is provided to asymptomatic employees to determine current infection status. It’s appropriate as part of an overall protocol for return to work, pre-employment screening, or high-exposure-risk jobs.

COVID-19 Antibody Testing. FDA-approved serological testing determines the presence of antibodies, which indicates whether individuals have had COVID-19. Presence of antibodies can mean they are less likely to spread the virus or contract it. This test is appropriate as part of an overall protocol for individuals who will be working in a high-exposure-risk area.

Onsite Temperature & Symptom Screening. Using non-contact infrared thermometers, our team performs accurate temperature checks, as one symptom of COVID-19 can be an elevated body temperature.  Screening also includes basic questions based on CDC guidelines that will help determine potential cases beyond the temperature alone.

Medical Policy Consultation. Companies and school districts can retain an occupational medicine certified physician for consultative services related to COVID-19 workplace/school policy development.

Medical Director Service. An occupational medicine certified physician provides ongoing consultation and direction regarding company/school medical needs and policy. This service is available in a variety of models based on the specific needs of the company or organization.
