Solv and Castlight Health collaborate to enable real time appointments for COVID-19 testing nationwide

As the number of COVID-19 testing sites continues to expand across the country, one of the most significant barriers to meeting demand is matching existing testing capacity to public need. This is especially important as states begin to reopen and the ability to track potential increases in cases continues to be crucial to public health and public safety.

Over the past month, Solv has worked with Castlight Health to help eliminate disparities in and improve access to testing by making it easier to find and book COVID-19 and antibody tests across the United States. The two companies built a robust API integration to provide access to Solv’s extensive network of urgent care providers across the country, surfacing their COVID-19 and antibody bookings directly in the Castlight Test Site Finder.

“As of today, consumers can search the COVID-19 Test Site Finder based on their location and find the closest testing location, view any necessary prerequisites, and book a visit all in a few easy steps,” said Heather Fernandez, co-founder and CEO of Solv. “The lack of access to COVID-19 testing continues to be an acute issue across the country–today’s announcement represents one step in building a scalable infrastructure to remove barriers to testing and increase testing adoption across all populations.”

Solv’s network of urgent cares across the country puts nearly 100 million Americans within 15 minutes of a nearby urgent care. With urgent care centers across the country able to process nearly 500,000 COVID-19 tests per day, this collaboration will provide unprecedented access to testing availability. Castlight launched the COVID-19 Test Site Finder at the end of March as a comprehensive directory of COVID-19 testing sites covering all fifty states. Over the last three months, more than 1.3 million people have visited the testing site finder.

“We’re pleased that we were able to collaborate with Solv to create an easy and convenient solution to help more people get access to testing,” said Jayesh Patel, Senior Vice President of Products, Castlight Health.
