How does it work?
COVID Companion sends automated text messages containing CDC recommendations based on patient location, age, and pre-existing conditions. Any patient or community member can use COVID Companion, regardless of symptoms or infection status. COVID Companion does not record symptom data, and will not send alerts to the healthcare provider.
Although it is not a replacement for medical evaluation or emergency services, COVID Companion reminds patients that if they are sick and they begin experiencing difficulty breathing, they should follow CDC guidelines and reach out immediately.
What does it take to implement?
Most organizations can spin up within a day of requesting COVID Companion. Because COVID Companion comes with a suite of supporting materials, it can fit into any COVID-19 communication strategy. Some organizations share materials right out-of-the box. Others adapt pieces for their needs. COVID Companion is flexible.
Additionally, COVID Companion is self-contained. No symptoms are collected. No alerts are sent to staff. No monitoring required. We do the heavy-lifting to make sure it's as light a lift for you and your team as possible.
