Participating independent pharmacies to receive BioHIT COVID-19 “track and trace” software free of charge

Joint venture partners Benasource, a leading provider of innovative group purchasing solutions for independent pharmacies, and SpeakwithanMD, an organization specializing in online healthcare consultation, are proud to announce plans to expand availability of COVID-19 testing kits throughout the U.S.

The agreement—as fulfilled through Benasource—streamlines the process of purchasing BioHIT “15-minute” test kits directly from the manufacturer. The fast-acting, blood serum-based tests may only be dispensed in a licensed clinical or pharmacy retail environment. They are not for home use.

“Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) has come in from the FDA, giving independent pharmacies the ability to stock-up on the test kits at wholesale,” explained Vinesh Darji, President of Benasource. “Together with SpeakwithanMD, we’re also working to provide our pharmacist partners with the CLIA-lab documentation necessary to lawfully administer the BioHIT test onsite.”

According to Darji, the effort is hoped to achieve the two-fold purpose of curbing the spikes and containing the spread of the Coronavirus, while providing a boost to the revenue totals of independents.
“One goal is to position the test kits as a source of revenue by marketing them as a necessary precaution in the fight against COVID-19, especially to customers who believe they may have symptoms; in turn, building an appointment calendar for testing on a pre-scheduled basis, right in the pharmacy.”

Even better, given certain conditions are met, local pharmacies may be eligible to schedule expanded testing in schools and businesses in their market area—a critical element of foresight in any vision to safely and efficiently reopen the U.S. economy—over the course of the last months of 2020 and beyond.

“SpeakwithanMD and Benasource can assist each participating pharmacy to put these plans into action, developing the arrangements required to simplify and accelerate the ordering process,” Darji said. “The peace of mind for better health and wellness, during these trying times, is worth the price of admission alone.”

The BioHIT test kit is licensed from China and made in the USA. The purchase price is set at $18 each, but requires a minimum order of 100 test kits per shipment.
