The US Rapid Action Consortium
In addition to being a global health crisis and an economic crisis, COVID-19 is fundamentally an information problem of a size and scale the world has never seen before. As with any complex global information problem, the solution requires the intelligent use of data and technology and for the right parties to come together to create ecosystems of impact.
The US Rapid Action Consortium has a clear mission: to enable community wellness and economic recovery by keeping workplaces safe.
Scientists and experts agree that COVID-19 will not be fully eradicated anytime soon, and rapid testing and vaccinations must go hand in hand. With millions of lives impacted and billions of dollars in economic activity lost each week, the US Rapid Action Consortium provides guidance and resources on COVID-19 rapid testing programs to enable businesses to create safer workplaces. We welcome members from organizations of all sizes, from all industries and sectors.
The relentless pursuit of better
Propelled by our purpose, the relentless pursuit of a world that works better for people, Genpact is applying its business process and technology innovation expertise to help develop and launch workplace testing programs across the US and Canada. We have published and shared our playbook of workplace testing guidelines and protocols as a public good to help organizations keep operations running and employees safe.
