CEO of LAX-based Urgent Care Clinic Shares How to Leverage Net Health’s Agility® Software Solution to Monitor the Health of Patients and Medical Staff
Pittsburgh, PA, March 18, 2020 – In an effort to help healthcare professionals manage the health of patients and employees during the Coronavirus outbreak, Gene Howell, the CEO of Los Angeles-based Reliant Urgent Care, will share best practices for exposure tracking leveraging Net Health’s Agility® software solution in a webinar March 24 at 2 p.m.
Howell’s high-volume clinic at the Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) manages 500 patients a day. The clinic includes an occupational medicine business that has been asked by a number of companies to screen and test hundreds of employees for the virus.
Howell is a black belt Agility user and is making use of the system’s flexibility to adapt to the current situation. He will share specific use cases, in which Agility has helped solve problems and maximized efficiency, such as Agility’s ability to:
- Adapt on the spot to continually changing regulations as the crisis unfolds
- Customize functionality based on clinic needs, such as generating pop-alerts for staff
- Reduce workload and streamline efficiency with a quick loading feature that enables his staff to enter data for a test or exposure only one time for multiple people
“Following best practices for symptom and exposure tracking is critical at a time like this,” says Net Health CEO Josh Pickus. “We know that hospitals and healthcare organizations are going to be concerned about adequately maintaining records of their employees, how many have symptoms, how many are home and who is actually sick, and we want the healthcare community to know that we have a tool for tracking and monitoring multiple exposures during outbreaks such as this one.”
“We’ve been thinking about what we can do to help as the provider of a documentation solution designed to monitor the health of healthcare employees,” Pickus continues, “and we’ve decided that sharing best practices we’ve picked up from our customers is the best approach. Gene will share his experience and discuss critical software functionality that is helping his organization be more effective at identifying, tracking and monitoring patients and employees who have symptoms or who have the virus.”
