BD collaborates with ReturnSafe to help employers manage COVID-19 testing

Franklin Lakes-based BD, together with ReturnSafe, the all-in-one software solution for COVID-19 employee health, on Tuesday said they are collaborating to integrate the BD Veritor At-Home COVID-19 Test directly within the ReturnSafe testing management platform.

“The BD Veritor At-Home COVID-19 Test enables people to test from home, without a proctor, while ensuring verifiable results, because test results can only be read using a smartphone,” Dave Hickey, president of life sciences for BD (also known as Becton, Dickinson and Co.) said in a prepared statement. “The test eliminates human subjectivity in reading the result, because there is no guessing game about one line or two, as is sometimes the case with visually read tests. You get a definitive ‘positive’ or ‘negative’ digital display that is dated and time-stamped in the app, and reporting of the results to a business or organization can also be fully automated.”

How it works

Through the use of a mobile app, the BD Veritor At-Home COVID-19 Test is able to auto-interpret and provide a digital display of testing results in 15 minutes. Employees can then upload their test results from the comfort of their own home via technology that digitally reads and verifies the result and imports it directly into the ReturnSafe Command Center. This removes the need for proctors or manually reviewing tests uploaded into the ReturnSafe system.

Employers can benefit from the combination of interpretation and secure reporting, which will significantly reduce the potential for test results to be manipulated or misreported. Additionally, the addition of ReturnSafe simplifies and streamlines the management of testing results and workplace health and safety solutions. Employers can effectively collect test results, track who has completed testing requirements on time, quickly identify positive cases to act, manage isolation and quarantine workflows, as well as collect data for compliance reporting.

The test is available for businesses by visiting, clicking on “Buying Options” and selecting “Contact Our Sales Team.” The BD Veritor At-Home COVID-19 Test is also currently available for consumers online at, and Everly Health, and in-store at Walgreens and Winn-Dixie.
