With doForms, we were able to rapidly design and deploy a mobile screening tool that all of our field staff can utilize on a daily basis so that we can gain instant insight into their health status and work availability to protect the health of our patients! - Dr. Robert Rosati
CRANFORD, N.J. (PRWEB) April 23, 2020
doForms – a mobile forms solutions provider that enables real-time data collection and custom mobile forms for small businesses, mid-sized organizations and enterprises – recently released an automatic mobile form that conducts employee wellness checks each morning.
By gathering real-time data about employees’ current health, businesses can more accurately assess potentially contagious persons. This enables them to build a work schedule aimed at completing essential tasks while limiting COVID-19 exposure for clients. The form was designed in collaboration with Visiting Nurse Association (VNA) Health Group, a 108-year old home health, hospice and community-based care organization headquartered in Holmdel, New Jersey.
This form is currently used by healthcare providers, although it can be utilized by any industry and essential business that requires person-to-person interactions.
VNA Health Group, with operations in New Jersey, mid-central Ohio, and southeast Florida, relies on this new mobile form to understand whether clinicians have any signs, symptoms or possible exposure to coronavirus. This allows them to establish if team members need to be tested for COVID-19 and increases their ability to send healthy, non-contagious employees into the field.
“With doForms, we were able to rapidly design and deploy a mobile screening tool that all of our field staff can utilize on a daily basis so that we can gain instant insight into their health status and work availability to protect the health of our patients,” says Dr. Robert Rosati, vice president of quality and research at VNA Health Group. “The doForms platform is an ideal solution to quickly design and implement a critical mobile application without significant development time. It was done in a few hours and we were receiving real-time health information from our employees instantly!”
The COVID-19 Screening Tool asks employees several questions regarding their current health status, including if any signs or symptoms of headache, cough, fever, sore throat, loss of taste or smell or other reported COVID-19 symptoms are present.
The form also asks if the employee has been able to avoid large gatherings or if they had any contact with someone diagnosed with COVID-19. This daily, real-time reporting has allowed VNAHG to monitor the health of over 1,000 employees in real-time.
