In Waymo’s case, the company said it was impressed with the Verily Healthy at Work program’s onsite testing and symptom tracking. “Verily’s Healthy at Work program allows us to continue to scale in the safest way possible for our team, workplace, and operations, allowing us to focus on our goal of making roads safer for all,” said Tracy Murrell, Director of Safety Operations, Health and Environment at Waymo. "As we resume operations, we’re proud to partner with the innovative team at Verily to introduce a meaningful additional layer of safety: onsite testing and symptom tracking.
Verily, also an Alphabet company, announced in June it was launching Healthy at Work by combining Verily’s “core data science and software capabilities, and Covid-19 testing expertise with guidance from public health authorities” to provide testing, screening and related strategies for universities and employers to return to “shared spaces.
The growth of Healthy at Work also comes as Verily expands deeper into healthcare, including its announcement late last month that it was rolling out a new subsidiary, Coefficient Insurance Company, to develop new payment models, focusing on employer “stop loss,” which is designed to protect self-insured companies from unexpected and large medical claims.
