Privacy-centric mobile application adds secure ID verification and digital tokens as proof of lab testing status
Bioinformatics leader hc1 and digital identity innovator Airside have partnered to deliver an integrated mobile CV19 Digital ID to hc1 Workforce Advisor™, a cloud-based solution that enables employers to systematically implement and track guidelines that support the ongoing health and safety of employees returning to the workplace.
COVID-19 presents unique challenges to employers as they grapple with how to safely reopen operations. Some of the best ways to keep employees safe include routine lab testing, physical infrastructure reconfiguration, workplace social distancing, and remaining vigilant for symptoms of, and potential exposure to, COVID-19. Faced with an urgent need to quickly implement and enforce a multitude of safety measures, employers are dealing with a massive amount of confusing, and often conflicting, guidance and an overwhelming amount of information to manage. Adding to these unprecedented return to work management challenges, employers must meet data security, privacy, and compliance requirements.
That is why hc1, an expert at securely transforming real-time lab testing data into personalized healthcare insights, and Airside, whose digital identity products are used by more than 8 million people, have come together to deliver a privacy-centric mobile solution that enables individual employees to share their lab testing status with their employer in a secure manner.
“hc1 Workforce Advisor is the only return to work solution for employers that measures and reports the risk of infection at the workplace and in surrounding communities where employees reside,” said Brad Bostic, hc1 CEO. “By partnering with Airside we are extending the Workforce Advisor solution with a world-class mobile application that can increase safety via a Digital ID that employees can trust to securely share testing status when entering the workplace.”
hc1 Workforce Advisor’s CV19 Command Center enables employers to effectively implement and monitor systematic lab testing and symptom checking guidelines for employees consistent with national and local best practices. Using a secure, HIPAA compliant process, lab test results are organized and trends are displayed in easy-to-use dashboards sorted by employee and workplace location. With the integrated mobile application from Airside, employees gain an easy way to do their part in keeping the workplace safe by confirming lab testing guidelines are followed through a secure digital ID that can be scanned when entering any work location.
“Combining hc1’s award-winning platform with our secure mobile application allows for large scale, streamlined, and, most importantly, safe operations when sensitive information sharing is necessary,” said Hans Miller, Founder and CEO of Airside Mobile. “Privacy is equally critical to employees and employers. We empower employees by making sure they control their personal information with transparent consent protocols on their encrypted device. Employers ensure a duty-of-care knowing that employee information is never stored in a central database, and protect against fraud with our easy-to-integrate tool to manage only the necessary information needed for a variety of workplace experiences.”
