Higher education administration have been asking themselves a series of tough questions over the past few months.
How can we reopen our campus safely?
How can we reduce the spread of the Coronavirus on our campus and in our community?
How can we monitor the daily and weekly health condition of our campus community?
Growing interest in contact tracing
The answers to these questions aren't easy. But institutions nationwide are showing a strong interest in an overall solution to this unprecedented situation.
In a recent research study administered by HigherEdStudy, 87% of schools say they are more than somewhat confident that their campus is prepared to reopen safely in the fall. The majority of these schools surveyed say they are likely or very likely to adopt a mobile application to monitor the health conditions of their campus.
Please join John Fees, co-founder of GradGuard, to review the results from the 2020 Research Report - Contact Tracing & Communications Platform for Colleges and Universities.
Mobile application & communications platform to aid schools in a safe return to campus
CampusHealth.IO is a mobile application to help colleges and universities return to campus safely and make informed decisions about on-campus activity.
The platform delivers a tangible way to signal to students, families and community members that the institution is taking visible steps to monitor the health of their campus community.
It's the latest development from GradGuard, a technology-enabled pioneer in developing innovative protections designed to reduce the risks of college life.
Participating schools may announce that they have adopted CampusHealth.IO to reduce the viral spread of COVID-19, while reopening and operating their campuses safely this fall.
A Campus Health Platform
The CampusHealth.IO platform is part of a system that protects and delivers meaningful insights to users and institutional leadership through enabling community members to monitor their daily health symptoms, while also being aware of the health conditions of their campus communities.
