- After you complete the test you will receive a “pass” on your NAVICA smartphone/tablet app that contains your test results. Tap PASS on the NAVICA app to view your results and pass.
- If you test negative, you can show your pass to your school or employer from your smartphone/tablet. Your school or employer will verify the validity of this pass using the NAVICA app on their own smartphone/tablet by scanning the patient’s QR code as displayed on their smartphone/tablet. Make sure your school or employer can view you actually opening the NAVICA app and accessing the pass in real-time.
- The eMed proctor is not a healthcare provider but is qualified to administer the test and read the results.
- Ensure that you have plenty of space in front of you to use the test kit. The test card must lay flat on a hard surface.
- The eMed proctor will have you adjust your webcam at various times during the testing. You must have a webcam that can be moved (laptop webcams work great – if you have a desktop webcam it needs to be repositionable). The proctor will need to view the test kit on the surface in front of you at certain times and will need to view you (the patient) at other times. For the test to be valid, follow all of the proctor’s instructions. For example, the proctor must be able to view the test card during the 15 minutes the test runs or it will be invalidated.
- You will need to scan the QR code on the test card with your webcam at two separate times. Make sure you hold the QR code up to the webcam when instructed. Keep the QR code in the center of the camera and hold it as still as possible.
- If you need assistance, call eMed Customer Support (844-943-0753). If they are not able to solve your issue, then at-home testing may not be the best option for you. In-person testing is available at pharmacies, urgent cares, or other health centers. Please contact your healthcare provider if you need a referral.
