FALLS CHURCH, VA–June 9, 2020 – Cognosante announces a plan to help states implement and optimize contact tracing programs to aid states in COVID-19 management. Contact tracing is the systematic identification and monitoring of all persons who might have been exposed to a person diagnosed with COVID-19. Early interest from states is a testament to Cognosante’s healthcare expertise and responsive solutions during rapid change.
Cognosante will support COVID-19 virus management through surge staffing, guidance on rapidly disseminating clinical guidelines, and technology solutions to aid program performance. Cognosante is excited at the prospect of assisting with these efforts as the Centers for Disease Control has stated identifying contacts and ensuring they do not interact with others is critical to protect communities from further spread. As the country and the world face the challenges presented by COVID-19, Cognosante has the recruiting, operations, and infrastructure capabilities to quickly provide surge capacity with remote or on-premise staff.
“This is another example of our commitment to help solve complex and intractable problems in public health. By bringing our technology, clinical program support expertise, and surge staffing together in an integrated way, we can be part of the solution for COVID-19 as the country addresses this unprecedented challenge. Our scalable, rapid deployment capability provides States timely assistance as they roll out prevention and containment measures,” said Michele Kang, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Cognosante.
