New Partnership Announcement
Ontario Elementary School the latest to take advantage of the Titan GPS COVID-19 Health Screening App
EDMONTON, Oct 06, 2020 – Titan GPS today issued a press release announcing an exciting new partnership with Toronto-based JK – 6 elementary school, Sunnybrook School. The new partnership is Titan GPS’ first agreement with a Canadian School to use the COVID-19 Health Screening App.
Titan GPS developed the COVID-19 Health Screening App in early 2020 as a solution designed to securely and confidentially screen employees and visitors for symptoms of novel coronavirus. The app works using a proprietary conditional logic program. In short, the app recommends entry to a building or self-isolation, depending on a user’s answers to pre-determined questions.
Sunnybrook School will now require students or their parents, visitors, and staff to self assess for symptoms. The Titan GPS app is configurable, enabling administrators to adjust the questionnaire to reflect guidelines set by Health Canada. Anyone entering the school must use the app to digitally submit their results on their own mobile device. Once submitted, the app’s conditional logic will notify users if they should self-isolate.
Built for Ease of Use
Due to the school’s young students, it was important for principal Teralee Brunn to find a quick, easy-to-use screening solution.
“Before school started, we practiced our screening procedures as a team with all of the teachers. We soon realized that the screening procedure would take longer than expected, and our younger children, who are only four years old, would not be able to answer confidently that they do not have symptoms.”
The early returns for Sunnybrook School have been excellent. By utilizing the app, Sunnybrook staff have been able to navigate early logistical roadblocks. The app helps limit the risk of exposure, helps keep record of potentially symptomatic individuals for simplified contact tracing.
“The Titan GPS app has made the screening process happen a lot quicker in the morning. It is really nice to have a record of all of the families for the day. The app is extremely quick and easy to use not only for the families but also as an administrator.”
Principal Brunn says the Titan GPS solution is just what the school needed: “The feedback from the parents and staff about the app has been very positive. With the efficiency, it has made our processes at school significantly easier.”
The screening technology is based on Titan GPS’ newly released and commercially available FieldDocs platform; a digital workflow application designed for paper free form fills and digital document management, among other workflow optimization tools.
Titan GPS rolled out additional layers of security and new privacy settings for the COVID 19 Health Screening App, accommodating for the sensitive and private nature of the health information shared by users. Results from individual submissions remain private and secure, accessible only by designated Sunnybrook School staff.
