Monitoring COVID-19 and Employees with Vismo

Wednesday 15 April 2020 - Fenella Gardner

Vismo has integrated COVID-19 data into its tracking solution enabling clients to actively monitor employees in relation to outbreaks.

Vismo has integrated the latest COVID-19 data from Johns Hopkins University into the Vismo Secure Portal, as a Point of Interest (POI) layer. This information is available to all Vismo clients free of charge.

Johns Hopkins University is actively monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic, updating the information in real-time on the number of cases, deaths and recovered patients, in affected countries and by States in the US.

By incorporating this data into the Vismo Secure Portal, it enables organisations to display the exact location of an employee with the latest COVID-19 statistics overlaid on their position.  In addition, having the ability to track an employee who may have become infected, and then the potential to trace any contact with another colleague could be helpful in isolating the spread of the virus.

Whilst a third of the world’s population is currently in lockdown, and the start of international business travel unlikely in the immediate future, keeping a track of virus numbers in countries when travel restrictions are lifted may influence a decision to allow an employee to travel or not.

The COVID-19 dashboard map was built by Professor Lauren Gardner at Johns Hopkins University back in January when the outbreak was primarily in China, to track the spread of the disease as it unfolds from transparent data sources.

Collecting information from a variety of sources including the World Health Organisation (WHO), European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control, and the National Health Commission of the People’s Republic of China, enables Johns Hopkins University to effectively relay the latest information in real-time.

Actively monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic, Johns Hopkins University are reporting on a range of information including the number of cases, active cases, deaths and recovered patients, in affected countries and by States in the US.

Integrating the latest COVID-19 data from Johns Hopkins University into the Vismo Secure Portal enables clients to visualise cases and monitor employees’ locations relative to the outbreak.
