COVID-19 testing booths were designed to collect patient samples in bulk aiming to optimise the usage of protective gear equipment in a healthcare setting. The number of tests performed per day globally as compared to the rising number of confirmed cases has been pretty low. Hence, testing booths can also be utilised for scaling up the number of tests by conducting rapid testing for coronavirus to generate results faster for patients. To benefit such collection centres, we upgraded our mobile apps to support this workflow, which makes it super easy to identify patients, collect samples and submit report entries for rapid tests via mobile right from the booth.
The Need for Mobility
The feature can be used to automate process flow and manage reporting at the collection centre itself. It allows you to also scan test kits and assign them to patients right after registration. Furthermore, the app also enables you to make report entries soon after testing is done. As a result, with smart collection techniques across highly populated areas, the new update can also ensure a controlled turn around time for your lab, enabling faster testing & reporting for patients’ safety.
How to use it?
To Assign Sample at Registration
When you log in to the doctors’ app, click on the menu to view the left drawer where you can see the new option called ‘Sample Scanning.’
After clicking the option, you can scan the pre-printed barcode that appears on your screen or add an order ID and search.
Assign samples and complete the patient registration process. TRF form can also be attached easily here. Samples can also be received directly from the app, with just a click.
For Report Entry
For tests that have been completed, you can fill-in report details quickly and submit using the same option.
Saved reports will be auto-sent to your doctor for approval using the ‘Notify Doctor’ option.
