Full Health supports testing of 3,500 music fans attending Ireland’s first festival in 16 months

Full Health's software platform supports safe return of events. 

Ireland's first pilot festival in over 16 months took place at the Royal Hospital Kilmainham on Saturday July 3rd 2021. The much anticipated event by music fans was sold out and the headline act was Mr Gavin James. The event had the added complexity of requiring all 3,500 attendees to have a rapid antigen test on the day or day before the event and present a negative result at entry. Attendance and completion of testing had to be conducted while respecting social distancing measures.

The Full Health platform was selected by our partners CodeBlue Medical and approved by event organisers MCD to run the testing operation. This included online booking, registration, medical team administration, review and approval of test results and crucially the delivery of valid Rapid Antigen Certificates with QR codes to attendees 30minutes from the time of the test. For those unable to book a time in advance, "a walk in" capability was also required. 

We were really delighted with how our event partners Codeblue Medical utilised the Full Heath system to make this first event in Ireland a huge success. Within 12 hours of being selected for the event, fans were booking in. The system was configured to deliver a solid user experience which clearly communicated where the test was taking place, how to prepare and a good choice of available slots from the 30 testing stations at Collins Barracks. We are thrilled that 95% of fans gave a satisfaction rating of 8/10 or higher, with 87% giving it 10/10. Our development team has created an excellent suite of covid testing pathways which is being used for tens of thousands of covid tests every month. We are excited to play our role in helping the safe return to normal life.Paul McCarthy, CEO Full Health Medical
