Life threatening illness is a reality; welloStation™ is your defense.
From epidemics like Ebola, to common, but serious, illnesses like H1N1, MERS-CoV and SARS, healthcare regulatory organizations and professionals alike are diligently working to prevent the spread of disease. The urgency of this effort is compounded by the deadly nature of illnesses like Ebola – which can kill within days, if undetected. On a larger scale, prolific Hospital-Acquired-Infections (HAI) cause susceptible patients to endure debilitating symptoms, resulting in increased medical costs for employers, and the loss of up to 111 million workdays at an estimated $7 billion a year in sick days and lost productivity1.
The new way to control disease spread is Wello®
World Health Organization (WHO), Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) are focused on preventing the spread of disease. Hospitals, outpatient treatment centers and long-term care facilities take measures to contain contagions in compliance with these regulatory bodies’ guidelines for hand washing, sanitization and disposal, but these practices do not address the admission of fevered persons.
With welloStation™ you have a new defense for the disease control puzzle. Every person you require can be fever screened with an infrared sensor at a hands-free kiosk in 30 seconds before entering your facility and without the involvement of healthcare personnel. When a person with an elevated temperature is detected, an on-screen notification appears on the welloStation™ kiosk. At the same moment, the visitor’s time and date stamped photograph is taken during fever detection. Then this information is immediately emailed confidentially to your disease control personnel for the appropriate next steps.
Wello gives your healthcare team more control by:
- Identifying potentially infectious persons without risk to healthcare staff
- Notifying healthcare personnel of individuals who may be contagious
- Reducing the risk of infection by keeping potentially ill persons away from at-risk patients
“I’m wello,” affirms visitors are well and your staff and patients are safe
For non-fevered persons, the welloStation™ prints out a sticker for the “I’m wello” badge. This badge identifies persons who have been screened and passed with a normal range temperature. This badge is worn during the time of their visit, positively notifying them as a non-fevered person. Note, fever screening is not a diagnosis of fevered condition, however, it provides an added step of protection for your healthcare facility.
Stay aware of high-risk infection times with welloWatch™
The weather has a lot to do with the spread of disease. Air quality, humidity and a number of other factors amount to significantly more favorable conditions for infection spread. The best defense to disease spread is being prepared, and that’s why we created the welloWatch™ app.
