Doctor, NP or Dept. Manager: Biosymtec is offering the free Infection Monitor application as a public service during this time period when we are all concerned about influenza and coronavirus 2019-nCoV. You can have your healthcare workers or staff monitor themselves, regarding infections, by asking them to use the Infection Monitor daily on their smartphones.
The Infection Monitor was developed after the Anthrax biochemical attack in the U.S. and further refined during the SARS coronavirus epidemic in Asia. Pre-clinical trials using the Infection Monitor algorithm were completed in Hong Kong (5 health clinics, total of 118 patients enrolled), Tianjin (Tianjin Haihe Hospital, 50 healthcare workers participated) and a Penn-sylvania (church community, 50 members were enrolled). The results of all seven sites were analyzed and the accuracy of the algorithm was determined to be: Sensitivity 96.7% and Specificity 96.8%.The proprietary algorithm detects the presence of infections days before signs and symptoms are apparent.
