This pandemic has changed everything about the way we live, work, and gather together. With PreCheck, there’s now a seamless way to bundle several essential components that can help us gather more safely in the future: testing, temperature checks, and identity verification
WEST HOLLYWOOD, Calif. (PRWEB) July 22, 2020
X.Labs, the leader in next-generation public safety threat detection and digital healthcare technologies, today introduced a novel product that incorporates virus test results, wellness and symptom survey questions, temperature readings, and other health data in an app designed to help keep schools, workplaces, concerts, stadiums, sporting arenas, amusement parks and large gatherings safer from COVID-19.
PreCheck by X.Labs is the first product to bundle the following components for safer, seamless health and safety screening and tracking in real-time, allowing for automated pre-approved entry into schools, large events and workplaces:
- The Everlywell COVID-19 Test Home Collection Kit, an FDA-authorized product containing a diagnostic PCR test that provides results in as little as 24-48 hours from the time your sample is received by a certified lab
- An FDA-approved bluetooth personal thermometer, a high-quality digital thermometer which shows whether your temperature is normal or elevated and records that information in the PreCheck app
- Customizable in-app wellness and symptom survey which can be tailored to fit the requirements of the participating workplace or venue
PreCheck displays an individual’s COVID-19 test results, temperature history, and other health data with a workplace or venue’s customized Wellness Survey, which is created to further screen an individual against the business or venue’s health and safety requirements for entry into a building or space, and comply with any mandated state tracking and reporting requirements.
How It Works
Individuals can request an Everlywell COVID-19 Test Home Collection Kit on the PreCheck website. Those who qualify will have a test ordered for them by a physician from Everlywell’s third-party telehealth partner. PreCheck by X.Labs users who qualify can use the Everlywell COVID-19 Test Home Collection Kit at home, receive their results digitally in as little as 24-48 hours of their sample being received by the lab, and take their temperature using the included personal thermometer at a predetermined time before accessing a venue. PreCheck combines the COVID-19 test results, the individual’s temperature, and wellness surveys to produce a QR code. The venue’s requirements will determine if the QR code produces a passable result for safe entry, or a code that places the individual in a status of requiring further screening. Participating workplaces or venues will use READY, an X.Labs platform that customizes the building’s COVID-19 policy on-demand by allowing the administrator to set acceptable temperature ranges, create timelines for COVID-19 test results, and create a Wellness & Symptom Survey to help comply with visitor health, travel and contact tracing requirements. The venue can select whether they integrate only a single or multiple functionalities of PreCheck for their operating environment.
Once individuals arrive at an event with a QR code from their PreCheck app, they can bypass health and safety screening lines and gain entry by presenting their code in a contact-free manner. X.Labs has also partnered with some schools, workplaces, venues and major event organizers to automatically transmit individuals’ temperature and test results to user-selected destinations. The PreCheck app also makes it easy for consenting individuals to opt into X.Labs’ optional contact tracing program.
Once an individual has PreCheck by X.Labs, they can use their personal thermometer and app to seamlessly gain entry into a variety of participating events that require temperature checks and/or COVID-19 tests. Future integrations will include integration of COVID-19 vaccine records, once a vaccine is available. Additional COVID-19 test home collection kits, if needed, can be ordered on Everlywell.com.
How to Purchase
Interested schools, workplaces, airlines, venues, sporting arenas, teams, and other groups that oversee large events or mass transit of people can contact X.Labs at PreCheck.tech to purchase or to learn how they can incorporate PreCheck into their existing employee or end-user applications.
