COVID-19 infections of medical staff pose a major concern for hospitals. Besides the health risks to staff members, infections can lead to the quarantine of entire teams and shortage of available staff. It’s critical to identify any staff members who have been exposed to an infected individual and trace their contacts including with other team members in order to control and reduce the risk of additional infection.
Traditional contact tracing is a completely manual process which can take too much time and result in inaccurate information.
• Interviews with infected staff member requiring recall of whereabouts and contacts with other staff
• Interviews with other staff who were potentially in contact including their own whereabouts
• Analysis of patient records to correlate staff who have treated and/or had contact with infected patient
• Random encounters do not show up in medical records of staff
