This healthcare industry customer specializes in operating and managing nursing care facilities.

They turned to their Microsoft technology stack to build solutions that would help protect their residents.

The Challenge

A Need for Effective Screening Tracking of All Visitors, Vendors and Staff

The customer recognized the need for effective screening of all visitors, vendors, and staff, as a measure to help prevent the coronavirus disease from entering and spreading throughout their facilities. Their goal was to implement an effective screening solution that would easily adapt to changes in requirements, reduce person-to-person contact, eliminate the potential for data entry errors, and centralize the data in electronic form.

Upon completion, the customer would realize the following main benefits:

  • Collection of critical COVID-19 related information from site personnel and visitors
  • Prevention of COVID-19 from entering and spreading throughout their facilities

Our customer was able to leverage their existing investment in SharePoint 2016 and InfoPath for hosting the solution and storing/tracking the results.
