Bravado Health releases COVID-19 tool to help hospitals and businesses screen patients and employees

Bravado Health today released a new screening and education tool to help hospitals and businesses keep their patients and employees informed during the spread of COVID-19, based on the latest CDC guidance. The new COVID-19 tool can be easily implemented by hospitals and businesses.

The COVID-19 tool allows users to answer a series of questions around their symptoms and health status. They also receive CDC recommendations on next steps, including guidance on social distancing and self-isolating, how to closely monitor symptoms, and how to contact a medical provider. In addition, they will learn the most up-to-date information from the CDC, like best practices for washing hands, disinfecting surfaces and monitoring symptoms.

“The need to engage people at home has never been more relevant than it is today,” said Dr. John Bernot, chief medical officer for Bravado Health. “The high volume of patients who have or are suspected of having COVID-19 will strain already scarce healthcare personnel. Our goal is to reduce the risk of exposure by helping people stay connected from home.”

The new screening tool is designed to be a resource for hospitals and businesses to help triage cases and effectively prioritize outreach and assistance programs for their patients and employees.

Anyone can try the screening tool today by visiting bravadohealth.com/covid-19.

Protecting employees

Employees want to work in a safe environment, and the CDC provides guidance to employers to help reduce the spread of the COVID-19 virus1. Part of this strategy involves monitoring employees’ symptoms and temperatures. Naturally, this raises the question about what employers are able to request from their employees. According to the EEOC, employers are permitted to ask their employees about symptoms and check their temperature during a pandemic as specified in the ADA2.
