We’ll all missing our golf and social opportunities, and you have seen a lot of information from us as this crisis unfolds. But here’s something that is relevant beyond just our chapter. Our Membership Director, Naoko Higashide, has been working with her software development team to build a screening tool for the COVID-19 virus. The tool serves in two ways: 1) helps focus healthcare resources on patients that really need help, and 2) calms fears and reduces demand on the system from people who are unlikely to need immediate assistance or testing. Her team is working with multiple locations to integrate the application with healthcare and governmental agencies’ back-end systems, starting with the agencies in Houston/Harris County, TX.
A freestanding version of the screener is now available at CheckForCorona.com. The tool leads you through one or more sets of questions, with each set based on your previous answers. It then provides an assessment of your current risk level and associated health recommendations. The tool does NOT collect any personal information, although optionally sharing your zip code helps gather data on the potential level of exposure per region. (Note that just because you don’t have symptoms does not mean you are not infected.)
Please try it yourself and spread the word about this great tool. Stay safe…- Apr 6, 2020
