Diversified Medical Healthcare | December 23, 2021
With the OSHA mandate for large businesses fast approaching, Diversified Medical Healthcare (DMH) announces their acquisition of a mobile app providing easy solutions for employer mandate compliance. The app, ConfirmD, created by Buddycheque LLC, serves as a digital health wallet for each employee, keeping their medical records in one user-friendly and secure platform. With an administrator dashboard, employers can view the status of COVID-19 testing and vaccinations across their organization at-a-glance, making reporting and compliance streamlined and simple. The app can be implemented in days and will make a drastic difference for businesses and their operations in the weeks and months ahead.
"Throughout the pandemic, we've worked with large businesses and organizations across the nation to effectively handle their COVID-19 management needs, We've kept up with CDC guidelines and FDA regulations to ensure the companies we work with are informed and up to date to implement best practices and keep their employees safe. ConfirmD is just one more way we're helping businesses to stay open and compliant without disruption."
-Kevin Murdock, CEO and Founder of Diversified Medical Healthcare.
ConfirmD generates custom QR codes for each app user to store their vaccination records and test results in one place. This can be accessed by a facial recognition feature for maximized privacy from any mobile device. The HIPAA compliant platform also has the capability to integrate with any laboratory information management system (LIMS) to enable employees and employers to access COVID-19 results in real-time, as soon as the lab processes the results.
Buddycheque, LLC, the company which created the ConfirmD app, was founded by Dr. Ramsey Kilani, Karl Wagner, Bob Ramsey, and Alex Chatel – who have amassed years of expertise in the industries of healthcare and tech security. The ConfirmD app is now powered by OnGen medical data management software company, which is a part of the portfolio of Diversified Medical Healthcare companies which deliver innovative solutions for the healthcare industry for molecular diagnostics, medical supplies, laboratory equipment, and medical software.
