Enya Launches FeverIQ COVID Health Check to Help Reduce Reopening Risk

According to a recent announcement, Enya, a privacy and data security company, has introduced FeverIQ COVID Health Check, for free, as a way for businesses and schools to begin reducing the risk of spreading COVID-19.

FeverIQ COVID Health Check is a web app anyone can use to assess their risk of potentially spreading the SARS-CoV-2 virus (the cause of COVID-19) by answering a few questions about their health, based on a risk model derived from more than 700,000 data points contributed by FeverIQ users. Enya says its analytics platform is designed to ensure that personal health information never leaves the individual's phone or computer, so businesses do not need to worry about handling sensitive health data.

“As businesses and schools reopen, it is incredibly important for them to have an easy, safe, and affordable way to health screen everyone coming onto their premises to minimize the risk of spreading COVID-19. We designed FeverIQ COVID Health Check to do just that,” said Alan Chiu, CEO, Enya. “Every business, office, and campus should be using FeverIQ COVID Health Check. It is free to use, requires no IT setup, and removes the burden of handling personal health information.”

To use it, business owners and site managers ask anyone who wishes to enter their premises to first submit information on their health condition online at FeverIQ COVID Health Check. The result is either green, which means it is safe for the person to visit, or red, which means the person should stay home and seek medical advice. The business owner or site manager can ask to see the result before letting the person enter the building.

FeverIQ COVID Health Check uses insights generated from more than 700,000 data points generously contributed by FeverIQ users to calculate the risk of spreading the SARS-CoV-2 virus, as well as their personal level of vulnerability to COVID-19. FeverIQ COVID Health Check covers a wide-ranging list of symptoms beyond fever, an important consideration given research done in the New York area that found almost 70 percent of the patients in the study did not show any fever when they were admitted into a hospital.

FeverIQ COVID Health Check is available for free at healthcheck.feveriq.com.
