USHealthPass has specific tools for those who are symptom-free or have recovered from COVID-19 to confirm their status with a licensed healthcare professional – helping them take meaningful steps towards a return to normalcy.
FREMONT, CA: As millions of Americans are now receiving COVID-19 vaccines or have recovered from the virus, NAHA Health, a personalized health care and case management provider, has partnered with USHealthPass, a secure, digital tool that allows organizations to safely confirm the COVID health status of employees, customers, travelers, and others.
The USHealthPass tool helps fight the spread of COVID-19 while keeping everyone's health information safe and only seen by licensed healthcare professionals. The system – free to users – functions as much more than a vaccine passport because it provides the ability to include anyone, regardless of whether they are vaccinated, have recovered from COVID-19, or are showing no signs of exposure or symptoms.
NAHA Health is an innovative provider of high-impact patient-centric care and case management with more than 20 years of experience. NAHA Health combines advanced technology with a personal touch to offer a holistic approach to healthcare to treat all chronic conditions. Best known for its managed care programs that provide transformative health solutions to the most vulnerable people in society, NAHA Health also offers behavioral health services, in addition to COVID-19 testing and vaccine verification.
"People need to travel for business, vacation, to see loved ones, for school – all kinds of reasons," said USHealthPass President Peter Gallic. "No matter what your status is, and regardless of if you've had a vaccine, USHealthPass provides a community tool to validate everyone's status, stay well together and keep each other safe.
The launch of USHealthPass comes as more countries open their doors to vaccinated U.S. travelers and the Centers for Disease Control updated guidance that makes proving vaccination records all the more helpful in returning to normal life. The CDC advises that fully vaccinated people can now visit other fully vaccinated people indoors without wearing masks or physical distancing. They can also resume domestic travel, including leaving the United States and even refrain from testing following a known exposure if asymptomatic.
USHealthPass is designed for simplicity, security, and inclusivity to anyone: users register for free and upload their status from a vaccine card, recent negative COVID-19 test, or medical document showing a previous COVID-19 diagnosis. For individuals who do not have those forms of documentation, USHealthPass provides additional forms of reporting, including a multi-day symptom questionnaire overseen by a healthcare professional. The resulting validation includes up to six months of clearance for vaccinated persons, up to three weeks for a recent COVD-19 test, or an alternate duration for those with other forms of documentation.
"Many of us are looking for the most efficient and safe way to keep our health information private, while proving our vaccine and COVID-19 status when needed for work, travel, or entertainment events," said Robin Crossman, Chief Executive Officer of NAHA Health. "With tools like USHealthPass, we are taking significant steps towards returning to the normal life we all miss so much."
