APHSS officials said the necessary adjustments required to integrate TTS as a stand-alone diagnostic facility into the APHSS system have been made and that TTS now conforms to the same protocols of all APHSS providers.
Performers who test at TTS will be able to opt in to APHSS effective immediately.
Speaking for the APHSS, FSC Board Vice President Christian Mann said that the announcement is "great news for the adult production community here in Los Angeles and anywhere that APHSS providers perform health tests for industry performers.”
“This is in keeping with our vision of industry unity when we launched APHSS as a resource providing availability information to producers and performers in the wake of the closure of AIM," Mann said.
TTS CEO Sixto Pacheco said that he's always understood the importance of the APHSS program and that he's "pleased that we have been able to put our differences aside and come together with a plan that benefits the adult industry as a whole.”
FSC CEO Diane Duke said that she too is pleased that TTS has joined with APHSS’ other providers.
"This alliance will only help with performer continuity of care,” she said.
