AdvaMed COVID Testing Supply Registry

About the National COVID-19 Supply Registry

AdvaMed has been working closely with the White House, HHS, FDA, FEMA and other key government agencies to ensure the continued supply of diagnostics tests, as well as other vital medical equipment such as PPE and ventilators, in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic.

To further assist state and federal governments in their pandemic responses, AdvaMed has created a comprehensive, national COVID-19 diagnostic supply registry which compiles information from diagnostic companies along with publicly available data on daily tests performed to create a centralized and standardized COVID-19 diagnostic supply registry.

AdvaMed’s registry aims to help streamline communications and data sharing between diagnostic companies and federal and state governments as well as standardize test supply reporting. It also facilitates collaboration with laboratories and other public health stakeholders to optimize access to all platforms of COVID-19 testing so that any potential shortages are identified and addressed quickly.
