DOCTORS Co., Ltd., (head office: Minato-ku, Tokyo; President & CEO: Takao Yanagawa; hereinafter referred to as “DOCTORS”), which provides one-stop support for the commercialization of digital healthcare services, will strive for the safety and reassurance of everyone by further expanding the system of postal PCR tests for companies and organizations.
The number of COVID-19 cases has increased for four weeks in a row since July, and the fifth wave of the spread of the infection has arrived. Even now, in August, the number of cases continues to increase, and the situation is aggravating day by day.
Though the number of vaccination doses administered is increasing, there are concerns about the emergence of a new variant. Therefore, it is considered necessary that we should continue to implement prevention measures against COVID-19 with PCR testing without relaxing the infection control measures for a while.
In response to such demands from society, DOCTORS, which has medical specialists with extensive knowledge and experience in medical practice, will further strengthen its system for postal PCR testing that allows companies and organizations to perform PCR tests.
DOCTORS has been providing the postal PCR testing service by using a test kit that has the quality accepted by medical institutions, and now we are prepared to promptly respond to not only individual customers but also companies and organizations to increase the number of available testing personnel to accommodate inquiries and deliveries more promptly.
Companies and organizations require gathering places and transportation, such as workplaces, commuting, business trips, and travel to other prefectures. The postal PCR testing service allows DOCTORS to provide for the safety of the employees and staff of such companies and organizations and to provide reassurance to clients more swiftly and with greater convenience.
In addition, we are fully prepared to provide a follow-up service after testing as DOCTORS has partnerships with medical institutions as well.
