Matrix Clinical Solutions Partners with ModivCare to Minimize the Risk of COVID-19 Transmission at Worksites

The Matrix certification program, developed in collaboration with Cleveland Clinic, assesses, addresses, verifies and monitors workplace safety 

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., April 1, 2021 — Matrix Clinical Solutions, a Matrix Medical Network® (Matrix) business, today announced two ModivCare Inc. (“ModivCare”), formerly LogistiCare, sites have been granted certification through ongoing monitoring of the safety and health of employees to ensure compliance within the Center of Disease Control’s (CDC) evolving COVID-19 guidelines. ModivCare, a technology-enabled healthcare services company that provides a suite of integrated supportive care solutions focused on improving patient outcomes, followed this multi-disciplinary safety verification program to decrease the risk of COVID-19 transmission while establishing and sustaining healthy, safe and productive workplaces.

Through Matrix’s risk assessment and COVID-19 experience and the deep clinical expertise of Cleveland Clinic, the certification program assesses people, processes and structure to ensure workplace safety through:

  • On-site assessments that are based on the latest guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and state regulations
  • Best-in-class protocols based on the well-established clinical and industry expertise of Cleveland Clinic and Matrix
  • Actionable recommendations to address identified health and safety gaps
  • Official certification following alignment to certification standards

Ongoing updates on evolving COVID-19 guidance and regulations

 

Matrix provided thought leadership in epidemiological and behavioral health best practices, tailored educational and training materials and on-going intelligence reports at select ModivCare facilities in Arizona, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Maine, Michigan, Missouri, New Jersey, New York, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Texas, Virginia and West Virginia. The sites in Oklahoma and Virginia have been presented with the safety verified certification seal and it is anticipated that the additional sites will be certified in the coming weeks.

“Ensuring safety verification of our worksites offers a sense of much needed security during these unprecedented times, especially when it comes to the safety of our team members,” said ModivCare Chief Compliance Officer, Jody Kepler. “Because our business offers ride and call center management as well as transportation provider network development, we’re thankful for Matrix and their actionable solutions. With their help, we can continue to use our essential business to meet the needs of our community without sacrificing the well-being of our hard-working team members.”

Upon certification, ModivCare sites receive a formal safety verification seal that can be displayed to validate worksite health, safety and productivity for employees, customers, and other stakeholders. As a part of the program, Matrix will provide ongoing monitoring and updates on evolving safety guidelines.

According to a national poll by Eagle Hill Consulting,1 50% of U.S. employees say they are worried about exposure to COVID-19 when going back into the office — a statistic that makes Matrix even more propelled to foster safe, ergonomic and intuitive work environments for businesses all around the country.

“An employee deserves to feel safe in their workplace,” said Matrix Clinical Solutions Chief Medical Officer Daniel Meltzer, M.D., MPH, FACEP. “We look forward to our continued partnership with ModivCare and are committed to the ongoing safety and health of its employees by ensuring each worksite is continually monitored and verified against the latest COVID-19 CDC guidelines.”
