How WeScan™ Empowers Healthcare Facilities To Help Prevent Infection Spread
The World Health Organization uses body temperature monitoring as a way to stop epidemics from occurring or continuing. This is because fever is the leading indicator of infection and best predictor of contagiousness.
That’s why we created WeScan™: a contact-less, self-service, temperature screening that device that helps alert you to people with temperatures elevated above the threshold before they enter and can spread disease to highly susceptible patient populations.
Top Ways WeScan Helps Stop Infection Spread Before It Starts
#1 Identify people with an elevated temperature before they enter
Placing the WeScan™ hands-free kiosk at the entrance of every high-risk patient care department enables you to detect elevated temperature in visitors and vendors before they spread infection. In just three seconds, the self-service WeScan™ scans a person and determines their body temperature.
#2 Notify healthcare personnel of potential risks
When a person with an elevated body temperature is identified, the WeScan™ immediately sends a confidential email with a time and date stamped picture of the person to a staff member. Your healthcare team can start disease prevention protocols to protect patients and coworkers.
#3 Help improve patient outcomes by going above and beyond standard of care
Adding the WeScan™ to your infection control protocols gives your healthcare facility access to the only self-service, hands-free temperature monitoring device. Now you know immediately who is potentially contagious and can discreetly enact your infection control protocols, which may help prevent hospital-acquired infections.
#4 Help reduce risks to healthcare professionals
Your healthcare workers are constantly at risk of exposure to contagious disease such as influenza, RSV, or Coronavirus. The WeScan™ can help protect your staff against disease spread by identifying people with elevated body temperatures before they encounter your staff.
#5 Help protect your reputation
When your employees or patients become infected as disease spreads within your hospital, this can open the door to a brand-damaging scenario or a costly lawsuit. Help avoid these risks to your brand and your top line by instituting hands-free body temperature screening with WeScan™. Keep infection out and your healthcare team, patients, and brand healthy.
