To support your surveillance and control efforts, our team has created a custom package of COVID-19 alerts. These alerts are meant to assist in identification of potential persons of interest and track the order of or positive result of a COVID-19 test. These alerts have been in the pilot phase with several hospitals where positive cases have been identified and we feel the current U.S. situation warrants distribution more broadly. Alert descriptions can be found in the TheraDoc Users’ Community on PremierConnect®.
While the risk of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) remains low for the general public in the United States, as indicated by both the CDC and WHO, the outbreak poses a great threat to the U.S. healthcare supply chain. This risk is increasingly evident when it comes to the masks and respirators that healthcare providers depend on to deliver care. An interruption in the supply chain of these products poses a potential risk to our nation’s patient population and our dedicated caregivers and clinicians as controlling exposures to occupational hazards is a fundamental way to protect personnel.
For the first time in 50 years, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention mandates quarantine for travelers from China due to an outbreak of respiratory illness caused by a novel (new) coronavirus – COVID-19 – first identified in Wuhan, Hubei Province, China.
Premier® Clinical Surveillance technology and services, powered by TheraDoc®, gives Infection Preventionists back precious time they need to stem the spread of COVID-19.
