Why IT Solutions need to join hands with Healthcare amidst this growing crisis

To fight the spread of the virus and make the surroundings secure, Unisys is digitally transforming the way organizations manage the testing and point of entry.

We are living in a time where, digitally, almost all organizations need to move quickly to create more secure and safer environments to work, live, and play, especially from the deadly virus.

With the second wave hitting various countries and taking over all the progress done in the previous year like a storm, businesses are finding themselves at a loss, where they do want to bring back their employees, but also want to keep them safe. Not to mention the halt of the education system where students are tired of virtual learning, and teachers, of teaching. Apart from them, everybody else wants to step out of their houses while ensuring that they do not come in contact with a positive patient and curb the spread of the virus.

And one of the most effective ways of doing that is having people carry health passports that are a testament to their health conditions being good enough to be in a particular environment. But most of the passports these days are physical, which brings up the issue of damage or loss. 

Another prominent issue is that of COVID testing. The construct of the COVID-19 virus is such that it needs frequent testing and in countries with larger populations, it becomes quite difficult to keep a track and record of all the people and their testing status. 

Probable Solution? A Digital Transformation of the best form

Merging of the HealthCare community + IT solution to compartmentalize the process
