Xybion Corporation, a global software, services, and consulting company, announced that it has released a new cloud-based software application, Exigency-ERT, built on its existing workplace health and safety cloud platform, Emidence™ XD. It is fully integrated with Human Resource Management, Employee Health, and Claims systems. This will assist employers in fully documenting, managing the return-to-work, complying with emerging govt. mandates and safe workplace rules in post-COVID-19 workplace management. For Healthcare employers this also provides Respirator Mask fitting for all healthcare employees. Immediate benefits of the Exigency-ERT are:
- Enable employees to self-report their status for potential Covid-19 infection and automatically notify supervisors and Executive teams as defined by your organization hierarchy
- Trace, Track, and Notify all contacts with other employees made by the infected employee at the workplace. This can be automatically created based on their calendars and self-reporting of other incidental contacts
- Manage all cases through a “Command Center” Case management platform for all aspects of the case, care, and claims, all govt. reporting, internal investigations, corrective actions, training, absence, and return-to-work. This can be used by both employers and insurance carriers
Xybion™ had previously announced that its workplace safety platform, Emidence™ XD, was selected by Northwell Health® to manage workplace safety of its 72,000 employees across 23 hospitals and nearly 800 clinical facilities. Northwell Health®, New York State’s largest health care provider and private employer, has borne the brunt of caring for the most COVID-19 patients of any health system in the New York metropolitan area.
“We are excited to have Xybion’s Emidence platform. We use it for Workers’ Compensation Program administration, including return-to-work, medical case management, safety, safe patient handling, and industrial hygiene. The platform is configured for ‘our process, our way’ capability. As the Covid-19 crisis unfolded, we reached out to Xybion to utilize their platform to resolve three critical issues: Covid-19 reporting, Fit-testing results and reporting, and the temperature monitoring now required by the CDC.” – Joseph F. Molloy, VP, Workforce Safety, Northwell Health
Dr. Pradip K. Banerjee, Chairman, and CEO of Xybion™ noted “Covid-19 Pandemic has changed the way workplaces need to be managed for health, safety, risk, and compliance. In the post-COVID-19 world, one thing is very clear- employers, employees and insurance companies will have to implement new ways of working in the post-Covid-19 world to ensure a safe workplace for employees and customers and comply with various local and national policy mandates.”
Employers need to be able to proactively capture early health safety indicators, track and trace contacts, validate and document compliance with new regulations and deal with Covid-19 Claims. In addition, Insurance companies may require evidence of employer’s processes and policies in place for the management of a safe workplace before underwriting insurance policies. Premiums and claims payment may be positively impacted by documented evidence of compliance with safe workplace requirements. Minimizing risk exposure and potential violation penalties have never been more important than in the post-COVID-19 world.
