CASE STUDY

We helped Tyson Foods employees get back to work safely.

Situation

Tyson Foods is one of the world’s largest processors of chicken, beef and pork. They are responsible for much of our nation’s food supply. Keeping this essential business operating productively benefits the wellbeing of all Americans. And ensuring a safe environment for all of their employees is the number one priority for the company.

That’s why Tyson Food asked our clinical solutions team to help them design and launch an industry-leading COVID testing and monitoring strategy.

Approach

The solution we helped design was built around a flexible testing strategy that employed data-science to help monitor the health of Tyson’s employees across numerous locations throughout the US.

Our strategy delivered advanced, high quality tests to reliably identify positive cases including those workers who showed no symptoms. Health screenings were conducted daily as team members arrived at work.

Tyson Foods is now also able to identify and test anyone who has come into close contact with a co-worker testing positive.

This science-first approach also saw our team provide support around the environmental design of Tyson facilities in order to mitigate the risk of Covid-19 spread.

And thanks to mobile health clinics and onsite nurse practitioners, Tyson employees can easily access the care and support they need.

Dr Daniel Castillo, Chief Medical Officer for Matrix Medical Network, explains further, “The new monitoring program we helped Tyson create is a science-first approach that’s really on the cutting edge of how workplaces can best mitigate the risk of the virus.”
