The new normal: Conversa HealthCheck helps businesses adjust after COVID-19
Conversa, an automated, personalized patient engagement provider, released its COVID-19 Employee HealthCheck tool on Wednesday. The tool helps screen individuals to determine who may be infected with the coronavirus, prior to them entering the workplace.
The coronavirus pandemic threw the enterprise for a loop, sending nonessential workers home and making remote work the new way of life. However, after more than two months of shelter-in-place orders and social distancing efforts, many businesses are beginning to reopen.
Returning to work, however, comes with a whole new set of challenges because of the pandemic. Business leaders have to ensure their employees are returning to a safe work environment, and that employees themselves are healthy enough to work with others.
How Employee HealthCheck works
In partnership with UCSF Health in San Francisco, Conversa developed the employee health and safety screener solution to ensure employees are healthy enough to return to work.
Employee HealthCheck functions as a brief automated chat that assesses each employee's exposure risk to coronavirus and symptoms of COVID-19. The chat can be completed via phone, tablet, or computer before the employee travels to work, according to the release.
Employees who are cleared by the chat receive a digital badge that they can display at access control points. Employers are also notified when an employee completes a screening. Employees who are not cleared for work are told to stay home and are provided guidance for monitoring, testing, self-care, and additional care, according to the release.
The tool is keeping up to date with evolving screening protocols and is designed to accommodate the needs of large companies
