ChristianaCare has developed a new telehealth service for businesses and employers that provides daily monitoring and testing program of employees.
The Employee COVID-19 Symptom Monitoring and Testing Program increases safety and eases anxiety in the workplace by monitoring employees’ health. It offers employees the convenience of access to a registered nurse to discuss their symptoms and the opportunity for telemedicine visits with a provider.
The program relies on ChristianaCare’s COVID-19 Virtual Practice and its CareVio care management program for secure text messaging.
“The COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated ChristianaCare’s digital and virtual transformation in ways we could never have imagined, and today we are delivering highly coordinated care through telehealth and virtual visits,” said Sharon Anderson, chief virtual health officer at ChristianaCare and president of CareVio.
Currently, 12 employers in Delaware, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Louisiana, and Arizona are using the ChristianaCare Employee COVID-19 program. These companies range from construction and transportation firms to health care facilities and nursing homes. The program is monitoring nearly 5,000 people.
“This partnership has been truly amazing,” said Brian Di Sabatino, CEO of EDiS Company, a construction management company headquartered in Wilmington.
“We have approximately 80 employees who are managing hundreds of tradespeople over dozens of sites. The implications for shut-downs due to COVID-19 are massive. We sought out a partnership with ChristianaCare to control the one area of risk we could control — the decision to come to work healthy,” DiSabatinno said.
