In view of the current situation regarding the novel coronavirus SARS-CoV-2, the main thing is to save time. We have therefore been working flat out in recent days on a new patient app that will ensure faster processes in diagnostics.
The app informs patients tested for SARS-CoV-2 about their findings by means of a traffic light system. In the event of a positive result, all necessary measures can be initiated as quickly as possible.
For this purpose, the collection centers for COVID-19 tests receive label sheets, each with two QR codes that belong together. When a swab is taken from a patient - for example, at a drive-in test station - the patient receives a label. the patient receives a label. The patient can download the app from the relevant app store and log in using the QR code or the ID number on the label. The sample is sent to the laboratory together with the second barcode. Here, the barcode for the order (in any LDT-relevant data field) is scanned. The finished report is exported and scanned in the laboratory for a possible COVID-19 examination and an existing BS order code. The findings result for this order code is entered on the central server. As soon as the findings are available, the patient receives a push notification.
With our app, the patient is informed about his test result in real time , which is clearly displayed by means of a traffic light system. This eliminates the need for a telephone query, thus relieving the burden on the responsible departments and keeping the telephone lines free. This saves valuable time.
The app can be downloaded free of charge from the respective app store and is compatible with all laboratory information systems. The tools for the laboratories are ready to use. In addition, thanks to the HERMA company, we have free labels for 125,000 tests that can be forwarded directly to interested laboratories.
Some large laboratories are already using our app. If you are also interested, please feel free to contact us.
