Loop Insights Inc (CVE:MTRX) has said it is launching a new contactless check-in platform for the healthcare sector in an effort to reduce the spread of bacteria and disease.
Loop’s Smart Health platform requires just a tap on the patient’s mobile phone to check in and verify identification.
Patients will have contactless access to everything they need in one wallet pass, such as real-time notifications, wait time updates and requisition information.
The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has created a “new set of standards and expectations for sanitation that will carry over as the ‘new normal’ across all industries,” the company said in a statement.
By eliminating the exchange of physical cards, ID or medical documentation at the point of check-in, Smart Health will help to minimize the chances of bacterial disease transmission, it added.
"As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, everyone is more cautious about the exposure and spread of bacteria and viruses, especially when entering a healthcare facility,” Loop’s CEO Rog Anson said in the statement.
“Through our contactless platform, we provide that sense of safety and security for both patients and healthcare staff-something that is sought after globally right now."
Loop is a Vancouver-based technology company that provides transformative artificial intelligence and technology for brick-and-mortar retailers.
