During the webinar, we discussed how rates of STI are at an all-time high in the U.S. and globally, and how traditional send-outs for STD testing can lead to over/under-treatment and patients lost to care.

In an urgent care setting, the Visby Medical Sexual Health Test is a rapid, point-of care PCR STI test that can help reduce presumptive treatment as well as patient callbacks associated with send out testing, and the mitigate challenges with send-outs, improve clinic workflow, and enhance the patient experience.
