This is precisely why we’ve developed our telemedicine app, which conveniently screens people for COVID-19 by asking targeted questions about symptoms, exposure, recent travel, and more. Data from these questions and answers are stored electronically, so they can be reviewed or downloaded in a report later in the event of a positive test result.
Screening is key in the fight against COVID-19. Some organizations have opted for paper screening methods, which entails having people sign in upon entering a building. This method is ineffective and time-consuming for a multitude of reasons, from people failing to sign in upon arrival to difficulty organizing the stacks of screening questionnaires. And in cases of infection, paper screening makes it difficult to easily identify who could have potentially come into contact with someone at your facility because you have to look through the piles of paper to find what you’re looking for. Electronic screening is far superior, since it creates a record that can be easily accessed and reports run when needed.
While it’s believed the risk is greater for older adults and people with certain health conditions, children can become infected by COVID-19 and can experience serious symptoms. Even if a child doesn’t become seriously ill, he or she can still pass the virus to others if infected. This highlights the importance of proper screening and tracking to ensure the right measures are taken to help keep the entire community safe.
