The global devastating effect of the COVID-19 pandemic across the healthcare sector is clear, with frontline services struggling to cope with increased demand and non-coronavirus services battling to provide normal levels of care to patients.
For most hospitals, there is a long road ahead in the battle with COVID-19 – but when governments are ready to ease strict lockdown measures, we are sure to see permanent changes to the way we receive healthcare and hospitals will need to implement new protective measures and controls.
Thermavis Thermal Temperature Detection technology solution can help hospitals protect patients and demonstrate that necessary measures have been introduced to avoid another overwhelming spike in coronavirus cases.
Multi-Person Thermal Temperature Detection solutions can be deployed in A&E and general admissions locations to automatically screen staff and visitors on entry, identifying those showing signs of high temperature or fever.
Staff have the opportunity to intercept people before they have the chance to socialise within the hospital.
Additionally nurses can use Thermavis handheld solutions to regularly check the temperatures of patients, in a non-contact manner, across all wards for the onset of fever potentially related to Covid-19
Technology will help prevent the further spread of COVID-19 and other infectious diseases by reducing the opportunity for transmission and help to ease the burden on over-stretched healthcare organisations.
The FDA recommends that, "in a hospital emergency room, a thermal imaging system may help to quickly assess temperature and triage patients to determine who needs more evaluation or isolation."

With the COVID-19 pandemic bringing health to the forefront of the construction industry, the ability to detect the potential signs of illness means the difference between a productive, healthy workforce and a potential risk to life. Accurate thermal imaging is especially important on construction sites where distance working isn’t always practical or possible.
