Buckhead Medicine is pleased to introduce the COVID-19 Surveillance System. The purpose of this system is to evaluate your entire workforce for COVID-19 infection. Our focus is to provide clinically based surveillance for your staff in a safe and timely manner, and to distinguish between which employees should continue to work from home and which employees can more safely return to the workplace.
The benefit of the COVID-19 Surveillance System is that it creates a structured screening system within your organization which will ultimately save you time and money, but more importantly allows you to safely reduce employee downtime.
COVID-19 evaluation and testing in our office, or at your place of business or job site, facilitates the logistics of evaluating your workforce in a timely and efficient manner and generates robust surveillance reports for you to make intelligent decisions about your entire workforce.
Buckhead Medicine, established in 2008, is the premier internal medicine practice in Atlanta. We have been testing, diagnosing and treating patients with suspected or active COVID-19 infection since early March of 2020. Our medical director is a board-certified internal medicine physician. He holds a Master of Public Health in Epidemiology and has experience working at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Our services include a physician or nurse practitioner that physically evaluates each one of your employees. These clinicians are supported by our clinical and administrative staff via HIPAA compliant telemedicine technology.
Our evaluation includes screening for COVID-19 type symptoms, targeted vital sign measurements, COVID-19 nasopharyngeal PCR testing and COVID-19 serum antibody testing.
Buckhead Medicine uses secure technology to provide employees with individual test results, in addition we provide employers with secure, epidemiologic employee surveillance reports.
Our technology driven, data collection and reporting system allows employers and employees to make more informed decisions on whether to isolate at home, work from home or safely return to work with airborne precautions.
We will bill insurance for these services. We will maintain close monitoring of your employees, address sick symptoms via telemedicine technology, and retest your employees every 4 to 6 weeks as needed to evaluate for change in COVID-19 status.
