The Healthcare IT Leaders solution provides omni-channel communication support through phone, email and text on a cloud-based case management platform. Trained contact tracers provide individualized case investigation to monitor the contacts of COVID-19 infected persons.
When a case requires outreach to a non-English speaker, contact tracers utilize Voyce language interpretation services to communicate in the contact’s preferred language.
