We partnered with Gauss Surgical to launch a survey through their Apollo App which is used at COVID-19 screening and testing sites across the United States. Their goal is to better understand the impact of COVID-19 on all aspects of life including symptoms and how the pandemic has affected individuals and their entire households. The questionnaire is being used in contactless seroprevalence testing in Blaine County, Idaho, where the incidence of COVID-19 was one of the highest per capita in the US.
About the Apollo App:
"Apollo enables contactless triage for COVID-19 at the front lines. Apollo guides patients presenting to an ER or drive-through test facility through a COVID-19 screening based on CDC guidelines and generates an encrypted QR code that health workers scan through the car window to rapidly review triage data and call the patient with the tap of a button. By eliminating direct contact with patients unless necessary, Apollo minimizes exposure, optimizes use of PPE, and enables high throughput of patients during a surge. Apollo is available in multiple languages and will load on any smartphone by simply scanning a QR code placed at the entrance to the health care facility." - From the Apollo website.
