Refer to this naming chart that includes former names of the tests, along with the new names and the corresponding result names as well as screenshots comparing the current and new view.

Monoclonal Antibodies for the Prevention of COVID-19

Hackensack Meridian Health is administering EVUSHELD for the prevention of COVID-19 in certain adults and children at the following locations:

  • Hackensack University Medical Center

  • JFK University Medical Center

  • Jersey Shore University Medical Center

  • Ocean University Medical Center
  • Southern Ocean Medical Center

Only qualified patients can receive EVUSHELD. If it is determined that a patient does not meet the criteria, the requesting clinician will be notified of the denial via email. Patients cannot request their own therapy. Only providers can request EVUSHELD therapy. Once approved, only authorized EVUSHELD program team members can then place the EVUSHELD therapy plans in Epic.

Monoclonal Antibodies for the Treatment of COVID-19

Monoclonal antibodies are also manufactured to treat disease after diagnosis with targeted proteins. They’ve found growing use in cancer and autoimmune diseases – and now in COVID-19 infection.

Hackensack Meridian Health is using these treatments at multiple sites across the health network, in key cases where it matches the criteria.

Referrals for other monoclonal antibody treatments, done in an outpatient setting through the emergency department or an infusion center, are open at several sites.
