GetCheckedOnline is an online service that offers testing for sexually transmitted and bloodborne infections.
GetCheckedOnline helps those who experience barriers in accessing traditional clinic-based testing. Those who use the service can visit the website to sign up, create lab forms and get results. Collection of samples (urine, blood, swabs) is done at participating LifeLabs.
The service is currently available at participating LifeLabs in Vancouver, Victoria, Langford, Duncan, Kamloops and Nelson. Clients can get tested for chlamydia, gonorrhea, HIV, syphilis and hepatitis C.
The website features:
- a comprehensive, step-by-step explanation of the process, including a video about how GetCheckedOnline works
- information about the tests available
- a lab finder
- treatment guidelines for health care professionals
This provincial report describes the outcomes of the first three years of the program (September 2014 – December 2017).
