COVID-19 Staff Monitoring

A remote monitoring platform that allows virtual screening of staff using validated questionnaires.

Background

COVID-19 Burden on the healthcare system

Problem

As COVID-19 cases grew exponentially, the fear of limited resources became an issue, placing greater pressure on the healthcare system.

Risk

Health professionals and staff were at a higher risk of exposure to the virus, given their work on the frontlines.

Solution

Western Health was aware of this problem, and approached WeGuide for a digital solution to easily and effectively screen their staff for COVID symptoms.

The Challenge

How do we take care of those who care for us?

These were the main challenges Western Health faced:


Remote Monitoring
How can we track the health of staff at work and at home and escalate / triage if required?


Education
How do we provide information and targeted advice to staff with COVID symptoms?


Proactive Monitoring
How do we manage a large cohort of staff to see how symptoms evolve and identify clusters of infection?

Our Solution

Implementing a digital COVID-19 staff screening program within a public health system
No items found.

WeGuide's expertise in the field lead to a solution that features:

Remote Monitoring
Staff could self-enrol or be bulk enrolled into the COVID-19 program through a native mobile and web app.

Regular Check-In
Questionnaires based on the latest WHO guidelines were provided frequently with reminders and alerts.

Monitoring at an Individual Level
View symptom trends and send relevant instructions, information and notification to coordinators.

Monitoring at a Group Level
Tracking dashboard provides status of all staff to track survey participation and highlight those at high risk.
