Auscura Offers a Free, Automated COVID-19 Symptom Screening Tool to Small Businesses Trying to Bring Employees Back to Work

SmartContact is a Platform That Allows Employees to Relay Symptoms and High-Risk Activities Before Coming to Work

Auscura wants to play a role in keeping the doors of small enterprises open and their staff employed.

    CHICAGO, IL, September 01, 2020 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Auscura, a leader in automating healthcare communication, today announced that it will offer its return-to-work solution to small, independent businesses in the United States at no cost. The platform is called SmartContact and it utilizes communication automation to prevent coronavirus spread allowing workplaces to stay open and operate safely.

"It's been 8 months since the first case of coronavirus in the US and not even one-eighth of the population has yet been infected. We must all do our part to minimize transmission in order to prevent hospitals from becoming overwhelmed and to increase the number of people that will benefit from immunization once an effective vaccine is developed," says Tom Scaletta, MD, CEO of Auscura.

SmartContact is a 30-second, daily e-survey used as a screening tool to check for COVID-19 symptoms as well as any exposure risk. This program complies with OSHA screening principles and HIPAA privacy standards. Auscura will provide this tool at no cost to companies with under 25 employees.

In addition to keeping employees and customers safe, employers are protected against negligence lawsuits because CDC guidelines are reinforced, the risk is acknowledged, and a historical record can be produced.

"We know that many businesses are struggling financially. Auscura wants to play a role in keeping the doors of small enterprises open and their staff employed," says PJ Hussey, Auscura's COO."
