Concentric by Ginkgo offers clients the opportunity to have both medical and administrative support available for their testing locations.
Medical Support Staff are certified nurse assistants, medical assistants, or licensed practical nurses who can aid with supervision of self-swabbing and test kit registration.
Site Coordinators are administrative professionals. They are able to assist with test day planning, collecting informed consents, as well as test day support with test kit registration.
*Please note that neither position is responsible for the shipping of test tubes at the end of test day. Someone from your organization must work directly with the courier service to schedule an on-site pickup.
Concentric is proud to partner with a network of reputable staffing agencies across the country to provide these services.
Below outlines the process of obtaining third party support.
