Identify just about everyone who had contact with the infected patient, even those they can’t remember!
Contact Tracing Plus supplements your manual contact tracing with stunning efficiency and speed. In a matter of only minutes, our patented technology quickly identifies the people who have been exposed to the infected patient. It also notifies them with an exposure alert, similar to a PSA.
We are not a mobile app. We do not require a download or Bluetooth activation. And there’s no need for any personally identifable information. It is already being used today by govenment agencies and saving precious time. It’s also much more affordable than mobile apps or other hi-tech options.
How we do it
Our patented process uses data (similar to internet cookies) to determine which mobile phones crossed paths with the patient over the previous 14 days. Without using any personally identifiable information, we send a customized notification to the phones or home PCs of the exposed persons. The alert looks very much like a PSA and informs them of the necessary action they should take immediately.
Identify and notify thousands within only minutes
While manual tracing alone can take countless hours of investigating, our technology performs at lightning speed to make your contact tracing much more efficient. Just do a simple upload of data and within minutes, Contact Tracing Plus is running its process to identify the specific people who are likely at risk. In the final step, we send exposure alerts to the identified phones or home PC’s of dozens, even thousands of devices.
No need for personally identifiable information
No names, phone numbers, protected health information or personally identifiable information is collected, requested, used, or retained by our servers. Our patented process uses mobile advertising IDs, and IP addresses… the same as used routinely by Amazon, FaceBook, and most of the Fortune 500 Companies. We are fully HIPAA compliant and meet all privacy guidelines pertaining to personally identifiable information.
We can recall those they don't even know
There is no need for patients to recall their whereabouts and interactions. Contact Tracing Plus does this for them, even identifying those random and unknown persons where there was only incidental contact. This would include strangers with whom there was a brief conversation, people who were standing next to them in line, or shoppers with whom the patient may have brushed shoulders in the same grocery aisle.
Much easier to implement than mobile apps
Getting millions of individuals to download is very challenging. Most experts agree that it would take a 60 percent adoption rate for contact tracing apps to be effective. No mobile app has come remotely close to achieving that level of penetration. In addition, apps are very expensive to develop and market to the public. They also call for personal and private data to be entered into the server, and require Bluetooth to be enabled in order to interact with other devices.
The CDC says…
“Digital contact tracing tools vary in purpose, features, and complexity, but they can add value to traditional contact tracing efforts by:
- Improving the efficiency and accuracy of data management and automating tasks.
- Reducing the burden of data collection on public health staff by allowing electronic self-reporting by cases and contacts.
- Using location data to identify community contacts unknown to the case to look at possible exposure.” (CDC source: click here)
We address the main challenges facing manual contact tracing
The Contact Tracing Plus process works very fast. People who had possible exposure to the infected patient can be quickly identified. Then they receive an exposure notification alert, similar to a PSA. Most notifications are sent immediately and all alerts are completed within a few hours.
The process is scalable and can handle a few contacts just as easily as handling thousands. Surges in patient volume are a non-factor and can be easily ramped up or re-activated at a later date in the event of a second wave.
Nationwide, the average contact tracer makes approximately $18 per hour and can complete approximately 3 patient calls, about $6.00 per patient. Our technology can notify thousands per hour at a cost less than $0.50 per patient.
