How 'Fever Identification' Cameras Can Help Fight Coronavirus

April 24, 2020

It is critical for essential businesses to keep its employees safe during, but not limited to, the COVID-19 pandemic. With use of fever-detection surveillance cameras, businesses have the ability to limit the spread of COVID-19 and other viruses.

One of the key symptoms of a virus, including COVID-19 / Coronavirus, is a high fever. Screening areas of large groups for possible symptoms can be safer, but how? By using a Bates Security body temperature measurement solution, we can now regulate buildings of individuals where elevated body temperature is detected, for a healthier environment. Thermal technology has enhanced video surveillance so patient privacy can remain safe while protecting HIPAA regulations. 


Meeting HIPAA Regulations

By using thermal technology, video surveillance has made it possible to use without violating patient privacy or HIPAA regulations. The cameras identify those who have a high fever but not the individual person. For example, the camera distinguishes the temperature of each person in view but does not tie any personal information to identify a person such as name, address, phone number or any other information.

**Disclaimer: Thermal Temperature Monitoring Solutions are not FDA-cleared or approved. The Solution should not be solely or primarily used to diagnose or exclude a diagnosis of COVID-19 or any other disease. Elevated body temperature should be confirmed with secondary evaluation methods (e.g., an NCIT or clinical grade contact thermometer). Users, through their experience with the Solution in the particular environment of use, should determine the significance of any fever or elevated temperature based on the skin telethermographic temperature measurement. Visible thermal patterns are only intended for locating the points from which to extract the thermal measurement.
