FRANKLIN, TN—Quore, a provider of workflow management and productivity tools for hotels, has released its Quore Aid Program for any hotel converting its property into a COVID-19 isolation ward or temporary medical facility.
The company has adapted its suite of solutions to allow for adherence to local and national healthcare guidelines to support housing facilities as they determine the right precautions each hotel isolation ward should follow in order to ensure the health and safety of staff, medical professionals and guests.
Individual states, counties and municipalities are actively seeking properties that are largely vacant due to growing stay-at-home mandates to serve as COVID-19 isolation wards. The goal is to relieve the pressure on hospitals, allowing them to focus treatment on the sickest of patients, and non-severe cases can be moved to an isolation ward. Hotels are prime real estate for these facilities, as most business and vacation travel has been canceled.
Hotel isolation wards may be used for various scenarios, including for recovering patients, individuals exposed to the virus that may or may not show symptoms, moderately ill people awaiting test results and individuals who may not be able to self-isolate in a home due to high-risk family members or personal homelessness.
“We want to support communities across the country in their efforts to stop the spread of COVID-19 and enable our hotel customers to contribute in a safe and secure way,” said Scott Schaedle, founder/CEO, Quore. “Not only does our platform help properties optimize operations, but it enables staff and guests to communicate with little-to-no physical interaction. We’re providing a baseline of health and safety precautions each property or location needs to update to be in compliance with local and national guidelines, so each property can quickly adapt to new mandates and remain focused on its new role in ending this pandemic.”
The Quore platform enables hotel management and staff to limit face-to-face interactions, implement mobile communications with guests and access modifiable templates that guide staff through recommended and/or mandated procedures that are updated in real time. These include isolation room set-up and turnover, hand and hygiene protocol, trash collection, sanitation requirements, signage placement and other actions to ensure the highest level of health and safety compliance throughout the property.
