Since the onset of the deadly Coronavirus earlier this year, temperature taking has become a norm at almost everywhere we go, including medical facilities, shopping malls, supermarkets and schools. As having a fever is identified as one of the more common symptoms, many workplaces have been mandated by the Ministry of Health to adopt regular thermometer screening as part of an essential step to detect any possible infections and to allow us to take immediate action. What is more interesting than this lifestyle change is how we have witnessed many “partnerships” with technology to fight against this highly contagious virus. Using thermometers with smart sensors has proven to be an effective method in lessening manual labour but also make contact tracing much easier because of its ability to sync data through your phone.
MaCh eX is, in fact, one of the players to help build a covid-free nation with our very own Smart Auto-Temperature Screening (SATS) solution and have since come together with more than 15 companies to ensure safe working places since June. Listed in IMDA and Enterprise SG, MaCh eX is committed to forge credible relationships with business to create a safer nation and to contain the spread of infection.
Creating a protected and operative environment is key and we feel that that is not enough when it comes to places with higher risks of infection. While we have seen larger health institutions implementing smart temperature screening at all entrances and exits, this is perhaps not as common in smaller medical clinics, which mostly still use forehead thermometers and bookkeeping.
During such a crisis, it is important for medical clinics, which have yet to implement smart temperature screenings, to do so. Here are the 4 reasons why.
Simple and Fuss-Free Process
MaCh eX’s SAT device provides an easy-to-follow process that helps alleviate the manual work that usually comes with temperature taking. See below for a condensed version of our simple and hassle-free Visitor Management Solution, catered just for your convenience!
If you have visited any potentially crowded areas, you would have noticed the common image of a personnel holding a small pistol to a person’s forehead. Sometimes also known as the ‘temperature gun’, medical officials have, however, determined that it may not be as accurate and effective due to various factors like a dusty environment and personnels not properly holding the equipment.
With MaCh eX’s SAT, your patients and staff can safely use this modern temperature-measuring device that is set to provide accurate results of +/- 0.05°C in just 2 seconds. This is made possible with the product’s incorporated infrared thermography to effectively diagnose whether an individual has a fever through the surface of their foreheads. Get ready for faster and more precise readings to keep temperature taking at your medical clinic fully automated!
Enhance Contact Tracing Efficiency
Even though the number of infected cases in Singapore are stabilising, it is still crucial to ensure that we keep our data and insights recorded, especially if you are running a 24-hour medical clinic and dealing with higher volume of patients. With MaCh eX’s integrated backend system that seamlessly syncs with SafeEntry, the National’s digital check-in system, you can keep your records up-to-date and monitor the health level of the crowd that patronises your clinic throughout the day. The smart equipment also has configurable alarm alerts for “unhealthy personnel”, which means if a visitor is running a fever (even if it might be a low-grade fever of 37.5°C), the system will internalise the information as ‘high-risk’ and immediately informs the person-in-charge via SMS. This way, you will be able to keep your clinic safe with the ability to take immediate action when such a situation arises.
Affordable and Cost-Efficient
Here at MaCh eX, we understand that investing in technology can often be costly. Which is why we are currently having a one-time promotion of SGD500 off, with hopes to provide support for your technological needs and to implement a contactless digital check-in solution. From now to July, you can increase your clinic’s safety measure when you purchase our SAT device at our offered price of SGD700. Alternatively, as part of the SME Go-Digital initiative, all eligible SMEs are able to get up to 98% under the PSG Grant!
