Temperature detection is an important part of a multi-pronged approach to infection control during this challenging period. The CDC recommends limiting access and monitoring entry points into healthcare settings. A well-planned strategy for controlling viral loads and infection helps protect patients, healthcare staff, visitors and residents in long-term and acute care healthcare settings. With HCI SmartScreen, temperature detection is fast and accurate. In conjunction with questionnaires, masks, gloves, social distancing and sanitizing preparations, SmartScreen helps to limit the spread of COVID-19 by identifying individuals with elevated temperatures. Higher temperatures can be a symptom of COVID-19, flu, colds or other contagious diseases. SmartScreen temperature detection is ideal for healthcare settings, Long-Term Care, Residential, Acute Care facilities and Infusion Centers.

The CDC offers guidance on screening and other infection prevention tips; many advise some form of door access monitoring or temperature screening.

SmartScreen Thermal Imaging

HCI SmartScreen is contactless “pass/fail” human temperature detection via a thermal imaging camera. If the individual’s reading is within the normal range, a “Normal Temperature” verbal response is heard. A visual confirmation in a green bar across the tablet screen shows the actual nominal temperature reading. In the case of a “Fail” temperature scan, the verbal confirmation is “Abnormal Temperature,” and a red bar with the temperature reading appears on the screen. Thermal readings can be taken on individuals with or without masks. Temperature visuals will display in Fahrenheit or Celsius. Your specific entry policy would then apply, such as incorporating questionnaires into the door entry process and limiting access. SmartScreen offers both aggregated and granular reporting on scans, counts and more.

An Integrated Solution

SmartScreen temperature detection integrates with existing hospital and other healthcare settings to monitor and control door access. It can be used in infusion centers, long-term care, residential facilities and acute care healthcare settings. HCI SmartScreen has multiple mounting options: desktop, wall or kiosk-mounted. With a door access system in place, SmartScreen integrates to match employees to a database or match visitors, guests or delivery personnel for door access. Enterprise door access systems may have additional security features built-in. SmartScreen can work with those systems to trigger silent or audible alarms and send automated texts to monitoring personnel. Facial recognition built into the SmartScreen can be used for an additional layer of security. SmartScreen integrates with RFID and RTLS systems so wearables and badges can be utilized with SmartScreen.

For other settings where health conditions need to be monitored and safeguarded, SmartScreen temperature detection can add that extra protection against communicable infection. SmartScreen can be installed as a stand-alone kiosk featuring a bright blue LED light and automatic hand sanitizing station. Place outside treatment areas, labs, dining halls, lounge areas or game rooms, retail spaces and other areas where Residents or Patients might gather, and integrate to existing door access systems or databases. Establish a SmartScreen kiosk and hygiene measures in foodservice preparation areas and at docks or delivery doors. Used as a standalone system or in combination with masks, eye protection, gloves and /or visual alerts like posters and signage, the SmartScreen is an effective tool to manage access.

The CDC offers recommendations for Nursing Homes, which apply to long-term, residential and acute care facilities:

  • “Restrict all visitation to their facilities except for certain compassionate care reasons, such as end-of-life situations.
  • Send letters or emails to families advising them that no visitors will be allowed in the facility, except for certain compassionate care situations, such as end of life situations.
  • Use of alternative methods for visitation (e.g., video conferencing) should be [managed] by the facility.
  • Post signs at the entrances to the facility advising that no visitors may enter the facility.
  • Decisions about visitation for compassionate care situations should be made on a case-by-case basis, which should include careful screening of the visitor for fever or symptoms consistent with COVID-19. Those with symptoms should not be permitted to enter the facility. Visitors that are permitted must wear a cloth face covering while in the building and restrict their visit to the resident’s room or other location designated by the facility. They should be reminded to frequently perform hand hygiene.”
