A) COVID Watch
A system designed to monitor COVID-19 outpatients.
Penn Medicine’s COVID Watch system is an approach to healthcare that may be a model for the future. The algorithm-driven system uses automated texts to check in on outpatients. Backed by a small team of health care providers, the results are clear: more forward-thinking like this is needed. Read the recent news release here, or learn more about the system at covidwatch.waytohealth.org.

A) Fighting a COVID-19 Endemic
Develop your infrastructure now!
The ebbs and flows of this pandemic sometimes make it feel like it will never end (but it will end, as all pandemics do). Yet many predict that it will shift to an endemic, meaning it will always be with us in a lesser, more manageable way. Now is the time to develop the infrastructure, including the coolers/transporters needed to maintain the vaccine cold chain year-round. Cool Cube™ PCM coolers come in four sizes. So whether it’s the light, over-the-shoulder coolers for off-site initiatives or large-capacity rolling units for back-up, get what is needed now.
If you haven’t already, watch this 113-second explainer video to see the simplicity and effectiveness of Cool Cube™ PCM Coolers.
B) Features/Benefits to Consider
Beyond the compliance.
Maintaining an uncompromised vaccine cold chain is more critical than ever right now. VeriCor carries a quality line of digital data loggers (DDLs) thousands of customers turn to for simple, dependable temperature monitoring. Here’s why:
- Do they meet CDC requirements? YES
- How is the data downloaded for viewing? CSV file (data spreadsheet)
- Does the device require additional software to download readings? NO
- Can a single device monitor multiple storage units? YES (dual probe models)
- How is the unit powered (batteries/AC adaptor), and can the batteries be easily replaced? BOTH (standard batteries used; AA or AAA)
- Is the device readily available for delivery? YES
And the integration of DDLs with the Cool Cube™ is easy! Here are the newly released videos of how to use a logger in a Cool Cube™:
- Cool Cube™ 03 integration
- Cool Cube™ 08 integration
- Cool Cube™ 28 integration
- Cool Cube™ 96 integration
C) Medical Kits that Put an End to Stacks/Boxes
Supplies within a hanging organizer with clear pockets.
VeriCor MedKits are organized and ready for medical personnel to use. The correct supplies are organized within a portable, rolled-up UMO (Upright Medical Organizer) that is quick to deploy. When hung upright, responders can see contents within the pockets to facilitate faster treatment. In storage, efficiently manage inventory with the included data-driven SmartBook™. Choose from a wide range of pre-built MedKits (Airway, Burn Care, Examination, IV Therapy, Med Admin, Staff PPE, Surgical, Wound Care, and more), or have one customized for your needs.
