Business Problem Solved

Nurses were using paper surveys and having to enter people's name, date of birth, and other demographic information, every time they completed a COVID-19 screening, causing the process to be time consuming and challenging for the nurses and people being screened. Implementing Esri tools allowed nurses to complete screenings in half the time and allowed managers to respond quickly when a positive screening occurred. The tool also ensured that the correct response occurred by providing the correct guidance to the nurse based on the location of the screening.

Technology Implemented

ArcGIS Survey 123 and Dashboards.
