Automate the Covid Pass Check Process in Care Homes

Automate the Covid Pass Check Process in Care Homes

12 Jan '2022 by Ed

In the United Kingdom, the Government passed a mandate that requires everyone to get fully vaccinated, if they are working in a CQC-registered care home.

This new covid pass mandate enforced by the UK Government is important from two perspectives. First and foremost, everyone who is directly or indirectly associated with the operations of a care home has to get themselves fully vaccinated. On the other hand, care home providers have to mandatorily check the covid passes of anyone visiting the care home facility.

This article will discuss how care homes can automate the covid pass check process without any human intervention.

The process to Check Covid Pass inside Care Homes

Care homes have two different approaches available to check the covid passes of anyone visiting the facility. The two approaches include either checking the passes manually or automating the process without any human intervention using the DigiGreet visitor management system.

The first approach, which involves checking the covid passes manually, is tedious, time-consuming, and cumbersome. Notably, care home providers will have to manually check the records each time to ensure that the person has a valid covid pass. In addition to being time-consuming, this method is also prone to errors because of human intervention. Moreover, keeping records manually is also resource-consuming, which, therefore, means that the manual approach is not the best foot forward.

On the other hand, the second approach includes automating the covid pass check process using an efficient, modern-day visitor management system. The visitor management system offered by DigiGreet allows care homes to check covid passes without any human intervention. The entire process is automated, which also eliminates the possibility of errors. In this approach, visitors type in their name, and the system then automatically checks if the visitor has a valid covid pass or not. Moreover, the system will also store the validity, expiry date, and other relevant data regarding the visitor/contractor’s covid pass, before letting them inside.

If the visitor/contractor does not have a digital covid pass, they can also scan paper covid pass QR code and the system will let them in. All of these features offered by the DigiGreet visitor management system make it the perfect choice for care homes to automate the covid pass check process.

Final Thoughts

The new covid pass mandate from the United Kingdom Government means more administrative work for CQC-registered care homes. But with the use of a system like the DigiGreet visitor management system, care homes can avoid the tedious manual process of checking covid passes. Get in touch with DigiGreet today, and automate the covid pass checking process most seamlessly and efficiently.
