WINTER PARK, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Plans to reopen offices and other workplaces in several states have prompted employers to develop and implement programs to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Social distancing, aggressive cleaning and disinfecting, face masks, split shifts, and temperature checks are among the strategies.
To help its clients and employers protect their employees, HomeCare Connect is offering on-site temperature screening. As an ancillary company that manages a range of home health services in workers’ compensation, HomeCare Connect typically works with employees after they have become ill or injured on the job.
“Now, we’re taking a proactive stance to help clients maintain safe work areas and avoid COVID-19 infections,” said Vice President of Clinical Operations Anita Jovic, RN, BSN, MBA.
Clinicians from the company’s network will use no-touch infrared thermometers to make sure no employee or visitor with a fever enters the workplace. They will also complete temperature screening paperwork.
Temperature screenings are available nationally and on a 24/7 basis to accommodate factories and other operations with multiple shifts. Initially, HomeCare Connect is offering the service to employers, insurance carriers, third-party administrators, and other payers that are already doing business with the company.
