The Industry Leader in Innovative Health and Safety Digital Solutions
Backed by more than 30 years of enterprise compliance technology and safety experience, WellCheck provides an agile portfolio of solutions designed to protect, prepare and secure with an all-in-one platform.
Our health and safety digital solutions were designed specifically to help schools, institutions, and organizations virtually check on anyone in a matter of seconds through HIPAA-compliant health assessments and safety alerts.
Whether it be vaccination document collection and verification, COVID-19 negative test upload compliance, behavioral health screening or community-wide mass communication, WellCheck reduces significant administrative burden by systematically distributing internal procedures and protocols with an automated, customizable screening platform that allows organizations and businesses to effectively mitigate risk and route resources.
Our Health and Safety Digital Solutions History
We launched in 2015 as PinPoint, an enterprise software solution designed to virtually check-in an entire organization in seconds during an emergency. Developed by an educator, PinPoint was conceived to enable schools to account for all students in the event of an active threat. In a school setting, teachers can use email or SMS messaging to check-in all students who are with them, provide their location, send pictures, and ask for medical help if necessary. Administrators and law enforcement can use our dashboard to track whether all students are safe and accounted for.
Today, schools, businesses, and other organizations use PinPoint to provide two-way communication and a mobile panic button during all kinds of emergencies, including active threats and natural disasters. PinPoint also partners with law enforcement to help your organization conduct regular emergency preparedness drills where you can practice using our software.
School and workplace violence is a growing threat, and safety is no longer limited to a security presence at the front door. Our preparedness solutions offer peace of mind by helping your organization respond effectively to an emergency.
In 2019, we launched WellCheck as a HIPAA-compliant digital health and wellness screening tool. Today, it’s used by business, government, and other organizations to conduct a wide array of ongoing health checks.
Companies use it to promote workplace safety and manage staffing needs. For example, if an employee gets injured at work, WellCheck lets the employer check in on the employee’s recovery and issue reminders to do physical therapy exercises. County health departments use it to screen residents for mental health, substance abuse, and domestic violence, then direct those residents to resources. Many organizations also use it for emergency notifications. Our respondent data dashboard lets you instantly assess the health of your entire population and stay aware of any changes.
The possibilities are vast, and we’re excited to partner with organizations to develop new uses for this highly customizable platform. Our cross-platform web app offers a simple, HIPAA-compliant way to screen for a variety of health-related concerns and route users to response-specific protocols, creating a safer and healthier workplace. WellCheck is easy to implement, so most clients can be up and running within hours.
The COVID-19 pandemic brought a new dimension to workplace health and safety. In 2020, we launched VaccineCheck, using WellCheck’s HIPAA-compliant technology for COVID symptom screening, testing reminders and results, vaccine verification, and return-to-work procedures. As well as organizations, many individuals use VaccineCheck’s Digital Health Pass to securely and privately display proof of vaccination for travel and other situations.
VaccineCheck verifies vaccinations with more than 60 state and local vaccine registries – even if the original vaccination record has been lost or damaged. Each Digital Health Pass is approved by a medical professional and contains a QR code that can be scanned by any QR code reader.
VaccineCheck for Business, Schools, and Events offers flexible solutions (including white-label options) to verify employees’ and visitors’ health status. Our platform enables you to screen your workforce and visitors, verify vaccination status, manage vaccine exemptions, issue testing reminders, and analyze data at a glance with our compliance tracking dashboard.
We believe our team is the most important ingredient for our success, and could not be more grateful for finding and working with this special group of people.
