Safe Temperature Screening Implemented at Houston OWCP with New Thermal Scanning Device

HOUSTON, TX, August 12, 2020 /24-7PressRelease/ — With safety at the top of everyone’s minds these days, Houston’s OWCP Docs have implemented a safe and convenient way to help keep both patients and their team safe.

By installing a state-of-the-art thermal scanning device, all who enter the building are able to get their temperature taken from a safe distance. Rather than having to use a temporal thermometer, the patient need only stand facing a special camera while their temperature is taken from afar.

This cutting-edge technology is a thermal imaging system that automatically detects the person’s face, and determines which features to use when gauging the temperature. It also has a controlled reference point to ensure accuracy. It was specifically designed to have precise measurements with incredible accuracy (within a half a degree Celsius). The entire process takes just a few seconds.

With these new protocols in place, all patients and team members who come to the OWCP Docs clinic can feel as safe as ever, and will be able to undergo any treatments that may be needed to improve their condition, despite the current situation.

The system is automated & controlled from a distance, and an alert is triggered if someone registers above a normal body temperature. This makes it easy & convenient to visit the clinic, and most importantly, offers peace of mind to those who still have OWCP claims to worry about, even during the pandemic.
