As we’re transitioning into another wave of COVID-19 threatening our communities, it is crucial for businesses and institutions to keep their employees and clients safe. One common symptom is a low-grade fever. Some businesses and schools have opted to use a handheld thermometer to gage temperatures, but is there a safer alternative? By using a Bates Security temperature measurement solution, we can regulate buildings of individuals where elevated body temperature is detected, for a healthier environment. Temperature Detection technology has enhanced video surveillance so patient privacy can remain safe while protecting HIPAA regulations.
Benefits of Temperature Detection Cameras
- High Efficiency—Wide-coverage and multi-person detection to have a faster and more efficient way of health screening.
- Eliminate Person-to-Person Contact—Automatic screenings that save workload and reduce risks.
- Professional Support—You will have 24/7 support with Bates Security to ensure your business is operating as safe and secure as possible. We install and make sure you and your team have adequate training to help keep your system running well.
Meeting HIPAA Regulations
By using temperature detection technology, video surveillance has made it possible to use without violating patient privacy or HIPAA regulations. The cameras identify anything with a higher body temperature 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.
Healthcare environments and other businesses have safer and healthier environments by screening staff, patients and visitors upon entry. Business owners and employees can take their company’s response to operate a healthier community.
**Disclaimer: Temperature Detection 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.
