Contact tracing is a critical tool for slowing the spread of communicable diseases like COVID-19. It’s been estimated that the current effort will require more than 100,000 contact tracers, all dialing in remotely and delivering a steady stream of user and contact data that will need to be carefully coordinated on a close to real-time basis. Governments must mobilize quickly to meet this unprecedented challenge.

Join us October 22 at 11:00am PT/2:00pm ET for a special Lunch and Learn webinar in which our experts discuss how you can stand up a reliable contact tracing program at scale in a matter of weeks.
We’ll explore how to:

• Authenticate your contact tracing team members using their own devices
• Create a single control pane to centralize all contact tracing activity, facilitating quick, informed decisions and automated actions
• Intelligently address barriers to community health and productivity
