The Evolution of
the Stay Safer PRN95+ Protective Face Mask

A group of healthcare, benefits and insurance industry veterans created the Research Consortium to assess new medical technologies and innovations for health plan sponsors.   While raising capital for the initiative COVID-19 emerged and stopped us in our tracks.  Serendipitously, we identified a silver lining in the situation: our ability to leverage our extensive industry contacts as a way to provide face masks to employers.  You see, our decades-long TPA friends manage health plans for tens of millions of Americans. We would simply build a small contribution toward our research into the cost of the mask.


Our search for an effective, high-quality face mask to market turned out to be a daunting task.   It was difficult to discern face mask fact from...and difficult to evaluate effectiveness, quality, etc..  Realizing that others would be similarly challenged, we researched and wrote The Definitive Employer Guide...  In doing so, we learned that people wanted more from a reusable fabric face mask including a meaningful degree of wearer protection.  Not able to find such a mask so we created it with an award-winning, private-label clothing design firm: the result is the Stay Safer PRN95+ Protective Face Mask.
