The current outbreak of swine flu has underscored the need for businesses to be prepared for a pandemic threat. Despite the challenges of the current economic downturn, we need to be strategic in the use of resources to protect employees
Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) April 28, 2009
In response to the emerging threat of swine flu, Quinnian Health, Inc today announced the release of the "Rapid Influenza Response" module to enable employers to quickly deploy medical countermeasures (antiviral medications and personal protective equipment) to employees, dependents, and suppliers.
The Rapid Influenza Response Module provides employers with immediate access to Quinnian Health's QhealthTM Platform, which provides program participants with the education, health assessments, and prescriptions they need to receive medical countermeasures. To protect program participants from additional risk of infection, Quinnian Health partners with Teladoc Medical Services (http://www.teladoc.com) to provide medical consults through telephonic encounters instead of in mass group events.
Dr. Michael Rendel, Chairman of Quinnian Health's Medical Advisory Board and Medical Director for Merrill Lynch Health Care Services said, "The current outbreak of swine flu has underscored the need for businesses to be prepared for a pandemic threat. Despite the challenges of the current economic downturn, we need to be strategic in the use of resources to protect employees".
"It is critical that employers do all they can to protect their most important asset, their people" said Quinnian Health President and CEO, John Brownlee. "As the leader in corporate pandemic preparedness, Quinnian Health is ready with the Rapid Influenza Response module to quickly provide medical countermeasure protection to employees and dependents across the country."
Quinnian Health will be hosting a series of webinar's this week to educate employers on best practices for medical countermeasure distribution, and an overview of the Rapid Influenza Response module.
