DALLAS, TX -- FreshLoc Technologies, Inc. is a 16-year-old pioneer and innovator of temperature monitoring for compliance and reporting of pharmaceuticals in the healthcare industry. FreshLoc, through its subsidiary, Wello® Inc., created the WelloStation™ temperature monitoring solution to scan people for contagion via fever screening. FreshLoc's Wello wins award from the Dallas Award Program for its silver bullet.
Fever screening of non-patients is the most overlooked area of patient safety since handwashing was discovered in the 1800s.
WelloStation began protecting patients from non-patients and grew to reduce epidemics in five ways:
•Increasing awareness of individuals about contagiousness when they have fever.
•Educating on the benefit and importance of hydration to susceptibility and immunity.
•Detecting and deterring contagious people from entering.
•Causing parents to keep contagious children home from school.
•Promoting employee wellness (Ending presenteeism and thereby absenteeism).
"FreshLoc is excited and proud of its subsidiary, Wello! We are encouraged to hear we are becoming known as the silver bullet of patient safety. This is all about the safety of our community and our hospitals," says Rik Heller, Chairman of FreshLoc Technologies and Wello Inc.
