Easy-to-use and customizable app pre-screens employees before they come to work
Calcium has announced the launch of its HIPAA-compliant COVID-19 solution for businesses and organizations returning to work or ramping up during the pandemic.
The app allows employees to prescreen themselves in less than a minute, before they leave for work. The solution also provides employers with a dashboard that tracks employee compliance and alerts authorized admins when an employee has symptoms of COVID-19 or may have been exposed to someone with the novel Coronavirus.
Built on the Calcium digital health app for consumers, the Calcium COVID-19 app for workers and employees can be downloaded for free from both Google Play and the Apple App Store. The COVID-19 employer solution allows employees and designated users to share their COVID-19 screening results – and only those designated screening results – with the employer.
“We’re committed to helping businesses and organizations get back to work as safely and sensibly as possible,” explained Terrence Ryan, CEO of Calcium. “We also understand the importance of creating a solution that is both robust but simple to use. We were able to leverage our expertise in consumer-facing user experience to build a COVID-19 screener that will help companies get back on track, while still protecting their employees and customers.”
The screening “pathway” used for employees applies the most current guidelines from the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention), including temperature checks and inquiries about contact with individuals who have tested positive for COVID-19. It is also customizable for specific needs of a company or its location, such as whether the employee has traveled out of state or the country.
The Calcium COVID-19 solution is available for immediate use, and organizations of all sizes can start using the screening and monitoring solution in less than 24 hours. The COVID-19 package is free for businesses and organizations with ten or fewer users, with an affordable monthly subscription for medium-sized businesses and enterprise clients.
