Traction on Demand and Thrive Health have announced the availability of a free, global availability for a new open-source mobile application called the Traction Thrive Critical Care Resource Management application for healthcare providers that are fighting the COVID-19 outbreak. It has been made available on Salesforce AppExchange.
The Traction Thrive Critical Care Resource Management application has been built on the Salesforce platform. It has been designed to view, track and allocate critical healthcare personnel, personal protective equipment, ventilator availability, and other critical supplies in real-time.
Rob Acker, CEO of Salesforce.org said, “Our partner community is making available an open-source mobile solution to help scale the ability to respond to the crisis with critical resources,” said Rob Acker, CEO of Salesforce.org. “Our hope is that nonprofits, governments, and health systems around the world will benefit from this platform designed to offer agility and flexibility for their individual needs during this crucial time.”
Understand the impact of the COVID-19 virus at a local level
The app has been designed to enable governments and healthcare providers to better understand the impact of the COVID-19 virus at a local level. It will also help to allocate resources to save lives and ease pressure on healthcare workers. Hospitals can install their own independent version. The app can also be implemented by healthcare systems that will enable them to get an at-a-glance view of their full network’s utilization and capacity.
Greg Malpass, founder, and CEO of Traction on Demand said, “This app helps healthcare workers to be better armed with what they need to save lives and stay protected. After a successful engagement of 26 hospitals within the first week of launch, we’ve decided to make this app available globally on AppExchange free of charge. It’s the right thing to do.”
Scalable without any new data centre
Traction Thrive is customizable by healthcare providers and scalable without any new data centre. It can be accessible from permanent and temporary facilities worldwide, and portable by practitioners across devices
David Helliwell, co-Founder and CEO of Thrive Health said, “In a time of crisis, it is crucial to be able to track your people and critical supplies in real time, so they can be allocated efficiently and effectively to save lives and ease pressure on the system.”
The Traction Thrive Critical Care Resource Management app has three functions. It enables healthcare workers to specify which workers, ventilators and personal protective equipment they have. It also shows each facility’s current occupancy and resource capacity. The app also serves as a communication hub between healthcare providers within a site or across regions. It offers advanced reporting capabilities for hospitals and regional health leadership
Dr. Ashwini Zenooz, chief medical officer of Healthcare and Life Sciences at Salesforce said, “The severity of outcomes for this outbreak now largely depends on ensuring that hospitals and healthcare workers have the resources they need to treat all infected patients while keeping themselves safe. We are operating in real-time. This means organizations need hyper-local insight into the COVID-19 outbreak so they can allocate supplies and resources accordingly.”
