How Fever Identi­fi­cation’ Cameras Can Help Fight Coronavirus

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.
