Deployments Health clinic installs Glory Star TAURI

There is no doubt that the COVID-19 pandemic has cast some new play- ers into the forefront of the technol- ogy marketplace. Glory Star is one of these. The company’s latest case study seeing its technology deployed to smooth out the check-in process for Willapa Medical Clinic — formerly Pa- cific Family Health Centre — in South Bend, Washington. The rural doctors’ office selected the patent-pending in- telligent self-service TAURI Tempera- ture Check Tablet to quickly scan in- coming patients and guests for fevers to help limit exposure to potential cas- es of COVID-19.

“As a medical provider, we have to see patients who are potentially in- fected — whether it’s with COVID-19 or the flu — while protecting those waiting to be seen,” said Mary McAl- lister, rural health clinic manager at Willapa Medical Clinic. “Before, we were reaching through the registration window to take everyone’s temperature with a tympanic thermometer. It was cumbersome and required a great deal of contact. With TAURI, they can scan themselves right when they walk in. This has sped up our registration pro- cess and made it easier for our aging patients who we sometimes struggled to reach.” TAURI combines Glory Star’s ex- pertise in creating and programming commercial-grade tablet solutions with the leading sensor hardware to create a fast, worry-free, and healthy experience. Patients simply walk up to the tablet, and it intelligently detects their face and scans their temperature from up to 3 feet away. Results are delivered in less than three seconds. The tablet’s sensor and body heat al- gorithm ensure temperature accuracy with a tolerance of +/- 0.5 degrees Fahrenheit (+/- 0.3 degrees Celsius) and has a refresh rate of 64Hz. For Willapa Medical Clinic, the tablet eliminates the need for another per- son to perform scans and prevents any skin contact. As a result, the health provider is able to assess quickly the next steps for check-in. When a tem-

perature is detected, staff will hear the special chime that lets them know to move the patient into an exam room immediately. The tablet can be pro- grammed with a special message to indicate what patients should do next, such as: “Please follow a staff mem- ber to an exam room.” This helps to
