Providing a convenient way for health care workers and students to be cleared for medical service.
Before working in hospitals or other healthcare facilities health care industry staff must be screened and vaccinated for diseases. At Passport Health we know the importance of clearing these individuals so they can meet these requirements in a timely manner.
What is Involved:
Whether you need vaccinations such as, Hepatitis B, MMR, or Varicella, and/or titers administered to verify immunity we are happy to see you in one of our seven DC-Metro area locations. Tuberculosis testing is also available, whether it’s the PPD method or the T-Spot method. The T-spot method obtains results within a few days rather than the 30 days needed when a level two Tuberculosis test is needed. Passport Health also facilitates getting results to your organization so that you can be cleared for employment. Medical credentialing services are offered on an individual basis, but we can provide these services to groups on-site, such as Nursing and Medical Schools for example.
The T-Spot Test has cut credentialing times by 90%:
(based on organizations who require a level two PPD test that takes 30 days)
Unmatched Clinical Performance
- Very few false negative results (sensitivity ~95%)
- Virtually eliminates potentially toxic chemoprophylaxis due to false positive results
- Unaffected by BCG vaccination and common non-tuberculous mycobacteria
Benefits for Healthcare Staff from T-Spot testing
- Virtually no repeat testing (due to low frequency of indeterminates)
- Results within several days
- No need for patient return visits
Convenient and Quick Solutions:
No matter your requirements for being cleared for work, Passport Health can provide a quick and convenient solution, including all proper documentation. Please call us for more information and to schedule your appointment, at one of our DC-Metro area offices or on-site at your school or organization.
