Individual and Aggregate Nursing Home Data
DrOwl makes data available at an individual home and state level. When a person enters an SNF or ALF, he or she must submit to a prescreening. If cleared for entry, that person’s data, along with the time and date of the visit, will be logged into the system. Nursing home management can browse and search logs for their individual facilities; the state can see data for all nursing homes
individually or aggregate. When a new COVID-19 case arises, the authorities can quickly browse the data to find the carrier and possible points of contact. From there, authorities can do one of two things:
- Notify residents if a visitor is later diagnosed with COVID-19; or
- Notify visitors if a resident is later diagnosed with COVID-19.
