ietnam is putting a new ‘contactless e-screening solution' into practice in a bid to help screen people that have clinical and epidemiological factors relating to suspected novel coronavirus (COVID-19) cases.
With an array of features such as the ability to be used in multiple languages, body temperature measurements, data storage, quick access to travel history, and information about suspected cases, the e-screening tool has served to provide medical staff with accurate instructions in a quick manner, therefore reducing direct contact and the risk of infection.
The latest weapon in the fight against the COVID-19 has recently been transferred to the Central Hospital for Tropical Diseases No 2 in Dong Anh district of Hanoi by the National Centre for Technological Progress (Nacentech).
By making use of this new tool, health workers will be able to monitor input, print results, and save data, all without the need to come into direct contact with patients, thus helping to reduce the risk of infection.
In addition, the e-Screening has helped boost the hospital’s data storage due to health workers now knowing how many patients visit over the course of the day, whilst the solution also helps patients reduce their waiting time and costs, in addition to easing pressure on medical professionals.
According to Assoc. Dr. Mai Anh Tuan, leader of the research team under the Nacentech, the solution aims to drive anti-epidemic activities and will be applied when providing medical examinations and treatment in the future.VOV
