ImmunoCARE: Rapid, Accurate COVID Testing to Reduce Hospitalization of Immunocompromised Individuals

ImmunoCARE: Rapid, Accurate COVID Testing to Reduce Hospitalization of Immunocompromised Individuals

This study is a randomized control trial with 10,000 participants. Participation will last for a minimum of 3 months and maximum of 8 months, depending upon COVID-19 case rates. Half of participants will be randomized to the control group and continue their existing testing and healthcare practices. The remaining participants will be randomized into the intervention arm. Participants in the intervention will receive one Cue Cartridge Reader for the duration of the study and up to 10 Cue COVID Molecular tests per month for their own use and to share with others in their household. In the case that a Cue Flu+COVID Molecular Test is available through FDA EUA or other authorization, participants may be provided this multiplex test in lieu of the Cue COVID Molecular Test. All intervention participants will be asked to test themselves if they are exposed or when symptoms arise and share tests with members of their household who are exposed to COVID or symptoms arise. The primary outcome will be the number of hospitalizations. This study will also compare infection rates, ICU admissions, deaths, and cost of care between the control and intervention group. The hypothesis is that access to high sensitivity portable molecular testing and subsequent telemedicine and prescription delivery can significantly decrease hospitalization and thereby the cost of care.
Interested individuals will access the study via the MyDataHelps platform by web or app to complete the eligibility and informed consent process. Within the MyDataHelps experience, participants will complete study activities such as surveys and sharing of claims data. Participants who are randomized to the intervention group will have the option to use Cue Care should they test positive for COVID-19. Cue Care contracts licensed Healthcare providers to deliver telemedicine and treatment for COVID-19. In the case that the COVID Flu+COVID test is available, the intervention group will also have the option to use Cue Care should they test positive for Influenza.
