Benefits of a Digital Screening App for Coronavirus

Despite a reintroduction of stay-at-home orders, business closures, and other mandates, rates of coronavirus continue to climb throughout the country. As a result, many people are rightfully concerned about their risk.

Whether you’re a parent worried about your child attending school, a worker concerned about exposure at your place of business, or a hospital administrator tasked with keeping patients free of infection, it’s a very uncertain time. However, there are steps you can take to protect yourself and others. Here at DrOwl, we recognize how challenging things are for so many people. We hope our healthcare screening app alleviates some of these challenges by allowing efficient and effective screening of COVID-19 exposure. Here are a few benefits our app offers to users:

Virtually All People Have Access to Mobile Devices

We’ve designed our app to be used on a wide variety of mobile devices, such as smartphones and tablets. This is so it can be easily used by as many people as possible, no matter their age, financial status, or computer savviness. When arriving at a business or facility, visitors can pull up the app on their device and answer questions as prompted. This ensures effective screening without the need to expose others to possible illness. If the answers indicate possible exposure or symptom onset, the person will be asked to undergo a COVID-19 test before access will be granted.

Information Is Always Accessible

Without electronic screening and monitoring, most businesses and facilities rely on paper screening. This process is problematic for a few reasons. You’ll need a staff member to perform the screening, which puts them at risk of exposure. Having a person lead the process also leaves room for human error. If the records are lost, it will be impossible to contact individuals who’ve been exposed to coronavirus. With electronic self-screening, visitors, staff, students, and other people entering your facility can screen themselves, which eliminates the need for a person to conduct the screening. It also reduces the risk of error, such as inaccurate information or lost documents.

You Can Have Confidence in Your Screening Process

People are fearful and worried about falling ill and possibly passing illness onto others. When you combine a reliable symptom screening app with measures like social distancing, sanitation, and mask wearing, you ensure your customers and staff feel little more at ease. If you’re a school administrator, parents can also rest a bit easier when they know you’re going the extra mile to keep kids safe. Peace of mind is more important than ever these days, which is why DrOwl offers our remote screening and monitoring app for free.
