Rapid, Accurate COVID Testing to Reduce Hospitalization of Immunocompromised Individuals
Still testing your household for COVID-19 due to being immunocompromised or 65 or older? The ImmunoCARE Study might be right for you. The risks associated with COVID-19 infection are higher for immunocompromised individuals and people over 65 than the general public. Researchers want to determine if an at-home test that may detect COVID sooner can reduce COVID-19 severity when paired with telehealth and faster access to care.

ImmunoCARE is a joint research project from Scripps Research – a renowned biomedical research organization — and Cue Health, a leading health care technology company that develops portable diagnostic tests for at-home use.
As with most research studies, there is an intervention group and a control group in this study. Only the intervention group will receive the Cue tests, telehealth care, and medication delivery. If you are in the control group, you will be asked to complete the study surveys and continue your COVID precautions as usual. Compensation is the same for both groups: Up to $100 in Amazon gift cards.
All study-related devices and medications are provided at no cost for those in the intervention group. Participants will never pay any costs to the study and are eligible to receive up to $100 in Amazon gift cards.
Cue at-home COVID tests are FDA approved compact and portable self-testing systems that can be used without a prescription. Test results take only 20 minutes and can detect small amounts of virus in people with or without symptoms.
Study participants that are assigned to the group that receives the Cue tests will receive the Cue testing device and 10 cartridges a month that may be used for the household or anyone who could expose you to COVID.
