How Healthcare Providers are Setting up Diagnostic Drive-Thru Operations

COVID-19, or Coronavirus has flooded our globe and in no time at all transformed its impact to Global Pandemic status. As if there’s already not enough medically staffed individuals working on the frontlines in a normal environment, this pandemic-centered world has left healthcare providers overwhelmed. That’s an understatement at the very least. They’ve almost completely run out of hospital beds and resources in most parts of the world.

More recently, in a reaction to the current COVID-19 health crisis, hospitals and other healthcare centers are setting up ‘instant testing’ and ‘drive-thru’ testing one-stop-shops to keep potentially infected patients away from the admitted general population. A problem, for a bit, was that there was a pretty limited access to testing kits, for the funding wasn’t there and that people were running and getting tests, out of fear and not fact.

When one is equipped with the right combination of solutions and hardware, whether that be mobility, scanning and even printing outlets, one could navigate through a perfectly crafted application, made to master disease and disaster management tactics. The right solution can assist healthcare professionals with their drive-thru operations, while still minimising face-to-face contact and building the most efficient experience for patients and customers alike.

Honeywell is combining their CT40 and CT60 Handheld Mobile Computers to provide real-time connectivity for the most essential applications. These two, side by side, can scan and capture data from even the smallest barcodes on ID cards and drivers’ licenses, using LTE cellular data or even Wi-Fi depending on your location. Built and maximised on the MobilityEdge™ these devices bring out the best in Android and OS support.

No matter what the device, Honeywell-as-a-Service solutions are an advanced go-to, in response to the COVID-19 crises circulating across the globe. Drive-thru testing is able to achieve its initial goal of safely and swiftly testing individuals for COVID-19 without negatively impacting too many participants.
