COVID-19 Screening for Patients

Axxess CARE enables users to screen patients for COVID-19 and maintain screening records in patients’ Infectious Disease Profiles.

By closely monitoring COVID-19 screenings, agencies and clinicians can deliver the care that patients need, optimize patient outcomes and keep providers safe.

This functionality facilitates seamless compliance with infection control and emergency preparedness requirements throughout the pandemic and onward.
