As modern organizations continue seeking ways to establish smarter, safer workplaces, many are turning to contact tracing to help safeguard against the spread of disease.
Up to 79.9% of COVID-19 transmissions can be prevented with immediate testing and tracing.
But manual contact tracing strategies can be slow and laborious.
While effective, real-time, GPS-based tracking solutions often raise concerns over privacy and security.
Only 3 in 5 Americans reported willingness to use Apple® or Google GPS-based contact tracing apps due to privacy concerns.
Here’s how it works:
Wearable Bluetooth® Low Energy (BLE) devices are issued upon arrival through a kiosk or concierge.
The Connected Platform app is used to scan each wearable and associate a Unique Identifier (UID) with the wearer’s email or employee ID.
This data is kept anonymized unless needed by an authorized user to trace contact after a confirmed case.
Button or badge form factors can be worn on wristbands, keyrings, lanyards or safety gear.
Connected Platform provides full visibility to battery life and status of all devices on the network at a glance.
Rather than tracking locations in real time, BLE devices scan for proximity to one another as users move throughout the workspace.
Contact events are registered based on distance and duration.
Default settings register proximity within 6 feet or less for 10 minutes or more — but can be configured to match unique busines policies or public health guidelines.
Location beacons installed throughout the site also log where users have been, enabling authorized tracers to not only track contact events, but also location events for deep cleaning purposes.
Wave scanners and LoRaWan® gateways installed near entrances and other areas of high traffic collect the anonymized event data from wearable devices.
This data is sent to the cloud and on to Connected Platform — ready to be queried in the event a tracing case is initiated.
Connected Platform empowers authorized contact tracers to log any confirmed cases in the app. Only at this stage will UIDs be securely matched to employee or visitor names.
Contact tracers can easily define search data by date range and degrees of separation, receiving results in minutes rather than days or weeks. This allows them to notify affected parties quickly and discreetly in accordance with your HR policies.
Personal data is limited to authorized use and will be automatically expunged after a select period of time.
At the end of the workday or visit, BLE wearables can be left onsite, eliminating the privacy concerns associated with GPS-based or real-time tracking solutions on personal devices.
