EARLY DETECTION PROGRAM: HELPING INDUSTRIES SAFELY REOPEN WORK PLACES

Monday, July 26, 2021 | Workforce, COVID-19

 

Washington State Businesses Get Back To Work With IHME's Early Detection Program

Join Washington State Employers that have already implemented the Early Detection Program. This no-cost tool lets employers and employees work together to prevent the spread of COVID-19. 

STAY HEALTHY

  • As vaccination rates increase and behaviors change, employee health remains a priority.
  • This tool helps detect possible COVID-19 outbreak risks so employers can take preventive measures that keep employees safe.

STAY OPEN -

  • Current self-reported results indicate 56% of employee respondents are at elevated risk for COVID-19. In industries where employees have to work in person and cannot maintain physical distance, detection and prevention of COVID-19 are crucial.
  • This program provides companies with real-time insights that inform leaders when prompt preventive action should be taken to avoid closures.

STAY INFORMED

  • The program combines IHME’s respected COVID-19 modeling and analysis with an attestation and survey tool that analyzes employee health.
  • The attestation and survey tool can be customized based on organizational needs, is available in English or Spanish, and captures de-identified data including:

o Temperature and symptom attestation;
o Vaccinations;
o Behavior, prevention methods, and contact.

  • Results shared in health insight reports and web-based dashboards.

As part of Washington State’s Safe Start Program, the Early Detection Program is provided to employers at no cost and is easily launched as an app or web-based platform. The project is funded through the Washington State Department of Commerce’s Safe Start grant from the U.S. Economic Development Administration.
