EMERYVILLE, Calif., Nov. 17, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Lucira Health, Inc. ("Lucira Health" or "Lucira") (Nasdaq: LHDX) today announced the launch of Lucira Connect, a new virtual care program that allows Lucira test users the ability to test, learn about treatment options, access a telehealth consultation, and if appropriate, receive a prescription all from home for only the $29 price of the test, excluding prescription costs.
Lucira Connect is a user-friendly web-based platform at www.luciraconnect.com available nationwide and begins with self-administration of Lucira’s simple at-home molecular COVID-19 test. 98% accurate results are delivered in less than 30 minutes and users can capture their test results via their smartphone. If the test result is positive for COVID-19, users will have the option to access a virtual telehealth consultation to discuss their risk factors and appropriate treatment options with an independent medical professional.
Lucira is also partnering with Pfizer Inc. to increase awareness and education about the risks of COVID-19 and the availability of treatment options. Pfizer is providing educational and risk assessment resources to be available on Lucira Connect to help test users understand their risk of progression to severe COVID-19.
“Rapid care from diagnosis to treatment is essential for managing you and your family’s health and for reducing the spread of COVID-19,” said Erik Engelson, President and CEO of Lucira Health. “Since our inception, we have been driven to revolutionize the testing industry by offering accurate and accessible healthcare from the comfort and safety of your home. The Lucira Connect program is one of the fastest and simplest ways to learn if you have COVID-19, understand what you can do about it, and to access appropriate treatment if prescribed by a medical professional. Through these partnerships, we aim to help simplify the way people access reliable information about their health and navigate COVID-19 infections to improve outcomes.”
