Stanford Medicine partnered with Apple to release a new app, called the First Responder COVID-19 Guide, which helps first responders screen their symptoms and, if needed, schedule a testing. By using the screening portion of the app, first responders are able to complete a questionnaire about their symptoms, exposure to the coronavirus and medical history.
If the app recommends testing based on their answers, the first responder then communicates this their agency’s department infection control officer, who will then work with Stanford Health Care to schedule the testing appointment. More importantly, these first responders are not required to be Stanford Health Care patients to access the testing.
- This phone is unlocked and compatible with any carrier of choice on GSM and CDMA networks (e.g. AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, Verizon, US Cellular, Cricket, Metro, Tracfone, Mint Mobile, etc.).
- Tested for battery health and guaranteed to have a minimum battery capacity of 80%.
- Successfully passed a full diagnostic test which ensures like-new functionality and removal of any prior-user personal information.
- The device does not come with headphones or a SIM card. It does include a generic (Mfi certified) charger and charging cable.
- Inspected and guaranteed to have minimal cosmetic damage, which is not noticeable when the device is held at arm's length.
Our researchers were among the first in the nation to develop and deploy our own COVID-19 test, a rapid response that has equipped Stanford Medicine with a crucial tool for protecting and caring for patients during this pandemic,” said Robert Harrington, MD, professor and chair of medicine.
