Beebe Healthcare has partnered with Intraprise Health to launch the Beebe Healthcare Covid -19 Screening Tool on both Apple Store and Android Google Play Store. Beebe is based in Lewes and has locations in coastal Sussex County.
The app, now available, uses federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention evidence-based screening questions. Users can walk through the series of questions and then based on the finding – whether testing is recommended or not They can self-schedule testing online or they can request a call from Beebe Medical Group representatives to schedule.
“The app makes it really easy for everyone to be screened. It is a great way to serve our community while remaining socially distanced. And, each individual can do it on his or her own schedule,” said David A. Tam, Beebe CEO. “This is how we at Beebe Healthcare are working to provide equitable access to healthcare for our community and beyond.”
In addition to using the app for screening, users can also find access to Covid-19 resources and education material. The app links with Beebe’s website and provides links to locations, education, and what you can expect when getting tested for the virus.
Intraprise Health worked on the app with Beebe Healthcare teams, which included Information Systems, Communications, Beebe Medical Group, and Beebe Healthcare leaders.
“It was really a great partnership with Intraprise Health because this is our first foray into an app of this kind,” said Mike Maksymow, vice president and chief information officer at Beebe Healthcare. “Our goal was to make a user-friendly app that was also secure and would allow users to connect with us with confidence. We have achieved that with this app and I am proud to say it was an incredible group effort from many on the Beebe team and our core group at Intraprise Health.”
To download the app, go to your App Store or Google Play Store, search for Beebe Covid-19 or Beebe Healthcare, and then select download. Once it is downloaded, you are ready to go through the screening or gather information from the educational resources.
