Webinar: RADx Tech Accessible Tests Program Best Practices - CIMIT MAIN

The FDA has approved the first rapid hepatitis C virus test for the U.S. market that can be used in patient care settings. The test, which was validated in part by the NIH RADx Tech program with funding from CDC, can provide results in about one hour, meaning patients with a positive test can begin treatment right away. We're honored to have been a part of the journey behind this important milestone!

Webinar: RADx Tech Accessible Tests Program - Best Practices

Since the Spring of 2022, RADx Tech has been working to make COVID-19 home tests more accessible (our previous webinar addressed these efforts). During this work, the team has also captured what we've learned (from knowledgeable evaluators, designers, SMEs and vendors in the field) in a best practices document. While a comprehensive document is anticipated this Spring, an early edition of these best practices, with insights so far, was published in December, with support from NIH, on the US Access Board website site. While it is based on COVID test development, we hope it will have future applications across the field of home test design.
