Appian, a software firm based in Virginia, launched a free health management app to help other businesses track workforce health and safety through the pandemic, by collecting information from employees and storing it in a HIPAA-compliant cloud. The app simply asks all employees to self-report their health symptoms and status to their company.
It enables employers to see the health and work status of employees by geography and department and also match volunteers with people who need help. Their founder and CEO Matt Calkins states “By taking extra care for personal safety, businesses can reassure their employees and customers that they can resume their lives securely”. The app is free for six months for businesses with more than 1,000 employees.
Other good news is that the software firm is now hiring for more than 60 positions.
