I am continuing to highlight the importance of the public-private partnership model as one way to deal with the enormous challenge of scaling up the widespread testing the U.S. needs to give us all any confidence that we can resume normal economic activity while minimizing our chances of falling ill.
The other day, I highlighted a national-level partnership to provide testing. This announcement gives a state-level example from Georgia. The partnership includes Sharecare, a Georgia-based digital healthcare company, with state and higher education agencies to improve citizen information access about where to get testing and how to fund it.
It is only thru efforts that combine the capabilities of both public- and private-sector that we can mobilize as quickly as we must to get widespread testing available.
Through this partnership with Sharecare, we are using their expertise as one of the world's leading digital health companies to encourage even more Georgians to access our virtual screening and get tested at one of the state's many sites.
