INDIANAPOLIS (PRWEB) May 27, 2020
Today bioinformatics leader hc1® announced the launch of hc1 Workforce Advisor™, a solution that uniquely combines lab testing insights and hc1’s exclusive Local Risk Index in a unified CV19 Command Center to help employers systematically support the ongoing health and safety of employees returning to the workplace.
“Some of the best ways to keep employees safe are routine lab testing, physical measures, workplace social distancing and compartmentalization, and remaining vigilant for symptoms,” said Dr. Peter J. Plantes, hc1 Physician Executive. “But as employers implement these measures, they are faced with managing an overwhelming amount of information they’ve never had to track before.”
hc1 Workforce Advisor’s CV19 Command Center enables employers to effectively implement and monitor systematic lab testing and symptom checking guidelines for employees consistent with national and local best practices. Using a secure, HIPAA compliant process, lab test results are organized and trends are displayed in easy to use dashboards sorted by employee and workplace location.
The Local Risk Index (“LRI”) advises employers of daily COVID-19 testing trends in local communities where employees reside and work to inform their safe return to work decisions. The LRI highlights hot spots where the virus is accelerating or decelerating within the selected population area.
“hc1 is the world-leader in transforming lab data into personalized healthcare insights that support high-value care strategies to keep people healthy,” said Brad Bostic, hc1 CEO. “Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, employers are faced with the daunting task of managing a wide array of guidelines, procedures, and metrics for the first time to provide a safe working environment. As business leaders work to reopen offices across the country, hc1 Workforce Advisor provides assurance that they are reopening in the safest way possible for employees and customers.”
