re-open.com’s Vital Monitoring System (VMS) is setting an exemplary standard for screening tools.
VMS is a clinically proven risk management technology that uses algorithms to identify and predict respiratory illness, including but not limited to COVID-19 and subsequent variants. Not only can VMS track the clinical deterioration of users, but it can also predict it, all from the comfort of the user’s home.
As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, it is now commonplace to be screened upon entry to a variety of physical environments. VMS was created by some of the world’s leading doctors and technology research professionals from Alfred Health and Deakin University, addressing the flaws in current screening measures.
Rudimentary tools rely on users disclosing their symptoms and providing details to aid contact-tracing efforts while the more thorough tools require pages of information to be filled out by either the user or administrator. Of these rigorous screening tools, many use vital signs to determine risk, however, this data is often collected by a healthcare professional or administrator.
Screening upon entry to an environment reduces the risk of transmission inside the building but does little to reduce potential transmission when traveling between places.
VMS eliminates the disadvantages of these methods, providing an easy and holistic medical screening that incorporates the elements of medical examination, retains the ease and swiftness of self-reporting tools, and can be done before one leaves home.
When a workplace subscribes to VMS, they can order a vetted Pulse Oximetry Device (POD) and Digital Thermometer (DT) for each staff member from re-open.com.
Before entering the workplace, staff will each use their POD and DT to take readings. They will then input their vitals and a few questions about their health.
Once the data is submitted, both the workplace’s VMS dashboard and the staff member will receive a message indicating whether they are fit to enter the workplace.
re-open.com also provides VMS Lite, a non-clinical CDC-approved health screening. Workplaces and employees can use VMS Lite without needing a POD or DT, as vital signs are not collected.
This streamlined process and accurate predictions contribute to the high user satisfaction VMS has garnered.
The high level of satisfaction doesn’t merely end with the individual user – the workplaces that adopt VMS are also extremely pleased with the solution.
VMS has a 100% integration rate with existing workforce management tools, screens 100% of one’s workplace daily, and is 100% tailorable to suit the needs of any given workplace.
VMS can also provide a clinical ‘back-end’ to a workplace’s existing non-clinical screening tools, adding an important layer of protection.
By monitoring and assessing the health risk of employees, workplaces give their staff added safety and flexibility while reducing workplace transmission.
Staff can be confident in their ability to use this easy research-driven risk assessment from home, knowing it adheres to requirements and has privacy measures in place to ensure their personal data is secure.
It is an accurate health screening tool that will help industries re-open quicker, safer, and with the safety and satisfaction of their people front of mind.

About health screening:
Screening is not a diagnosis; however, it is a useful assessment of your health that can help identify signs of illness, distress, or deterioration. An interactive clinical assessment tool, such as re-open.com’s VMS, can assist users in deciding whether they are fit to operate as usual or if they need to seek medical care.
About signs of respiratory illness:
While COVID-19 and other forms of respiratory illness have a set of common symptoms, there are also atypical signs. re-open.com’s screening tool, VMS, can be used to identify both typical and atypical signs of respiratory illness in users.
