Covid Pandemic Data Management Work

COVID-19 has brought the need for systems that help manage pandemics in government agencies

UNIT Innovations developed a proven complete mobile and web technology system to assist facility staff to prevent, contain and mitigate COVID-19.

Our UNIT Pandemic Data Management System PDMS is scalable for any size facility. Our UNIT PDMS platform allows officers and medical staff to effectively track, monitor and help prevent the coronavirus using our handheld mobile device and web portal. Our system was developed dynamically to be programmed for any type of protocols and policies your facility requires. Digitize your staff's Covid tasks and eliminate paper logs to gather and quickly analyze data.

Coronavirus is an unexpected tragedy for all of us, multiple University studies indicate that inmates are 5 times more likely to get Covid-19. Our UNIT PDMS system is a platform to quickly and easily manage and analyze inmate data. A facility can also integrate their existing inmate management system information to our UNIT platform and handheld device. The entire process is automated, searchable, sortable, customized, exported, and time stamped by staff users for administrators, managers, or medical staff. If workflow tasks are not completed, any supervisors can even receive email alerts that tasks were not completed on time. UNIT not only helps you prevent, contain and mitigate Covid-19, it also helps reduce your liability by allowing you to gather and quickly access inmate data for potential coronavirus cases.

After approximately five 5 months of managing the COVID19 Pandemic, the current method of relying on excel spreadsheets to manage the related data is labor intensive and creates many identified failures due to the sheer volume of information being managed and reported.

UNIT Covid-19 System Information Corrections streamlines how information is being collected and offers the ability to accomplish the following:
- Make the data entries more automated

- Make the data entries more streamlined

- Make the data searchable
- Make the data sortable
- Make the data exportable
- Make the data fields customizable
- Allow data fields to scale according to pandemic changes Allow for administrative oversight

Technology & Use Cases:

Mobile Technology:
Each UNIT device can be set with all workflows for an entire facility or set to individual task groups for e.g. medical, booking, lobby, pods, holding cells, only etc... UNIT is a dynamic platform for any type of facility and configuration. Our UNIT platform allows you to configure your mobile handheld device or tablet with any time schedules, warnings, and alerts for any workflow tasks. Our devices streamline the entire process for Covid screening, IR non-contact thermometers, cleaning, maintenance, or any other required forms or customized process for your entire facility. Staff members can easily enter inmate information and check off required tasks when they are completed.

Our mobile devices are locked down for our UNIT application only to assist and hold staff accountable to complete their scheduled Covid tasks. Multiple devices can emulate each other and show "In Progress" when tasks are being done or a device can be independent for one area only. Each mobile device is rugged with MILSTD810G compliance and IP68 dust/water resistant specifications. Our devices even have wireless charging, staff members simply lay them on a stand- up dock to keep them charged when not in use.

Web Application and Reporting:
Our secure UNIT PDMS web portal is the centralized virtual command center for all administrators, managers, and medical staff. Our portal receives and maintains all data gathered by facility staff for Covid screening, prevention and monitoring. An administrator or manager can simply login to the portal and print out a workflow task report in under 60 seconds. Reports are quickly exported or downloaded for any staff user or multiple users, and filtered by date, time, workflows, forms, and inmates. Our support team, or your facility admins/managers, can easily customize your portal workflows to your devices and with our real-time database, the changes are made immediately. Gathering, maintaining, and analyzing coronavirus inmate data is critical in this unprecedented Covid-19 period, and UNIT PDMS will maintain it all for your facility.
