Well.Me Announces Workplace Vaccine and Symptom Tracker
News / 07 December 2020
Wellbeing Specialists to enable symptom checking, localised “track and trace”, and workplace-wide digital COVID freedom passes for some of UK’s largest employers
Well.Me, the leading provider of corporate health metrics and tracking systems, has today announced the launch of a new set of physical and digital systems to support COVID-19 track and trace and vaccine rollout monitoring. The systems will allow for accurate symptom monitoring and localised “track and trace” operations within workplace environments, as well as providing a database of which employees have received a vaccine, which could enable a digital COVID “freedom pass” for staff.
Well.Me’s existing health monitoring Wellpoint systems are already deployed by major UK employers such as BMW, Siemens, RWE and Network Rail in their factories and offices where they provide vital health metrics including blood pressure and other Cardiovascular Risk data. The Wellpoints are also extensively used by the Department of Health and the NHS where they provide both staff and patient health checking services. These new COVID symptom tracking systems can be seamlessly integrated with existing Wellpoints to warn of a potentially COVID-19 infected employee.
Well.Me also provides a digital health tracking service for employees via an app and browser-based health dashboard. It is the first solution capable of offering workplaces the opportunity to implement a vaccine monitoring system, which could enable staff members at all levels of an organisation to be granted digital “freedom passes” which will mimic similar policies currently being considered by the UK Government, and will enable businesses to better manage risk and deliver greater safety within the workplace environment.
This app is also fully integrated with the Wellpoint systems, and can now be automatically integrated with on-site testing results to establish localised “track and trace” operations within workplaces to help employers take action against outbreaks.
“In getting Britain back to work it is vital that we give major employers, including our health service, the means to combat outbreaks of COVID-19 in the workplace,” explains Keith Lewis, CEO of Well.Me. “We need symptom checking to provide early alerts and digital tracking of employee health to react fast to outbreaks. Well.Me is adapting its existing health metrics systems and digital tracking service to help the UK’s employers.”
