As industry starts to consider opening its doors to offices and buildings again, attention turns to two fundamental questions:
- What are organisation doing to safeguard their staff and adapt their operation giving confidence that it is safe for staff and visitors to return to offices again?
- What are the expectations of staff to inform their decision making and encourage them to return to their normal place of work again knowing that it is safe to do so?
All parties want to offer surety that processes are well thought through, efficient and can be applied consistently throughout their journey. The Health Passport has been designed to provide the platform between customer and organisation providing a verification platform that has been designed to facilitate a safe return to the office space:
This simple process allows an employee / visitor to manage their own journey and be fully in control of their own data and most importantly fully in control of who has access to their data.
- The ID verification platform works with ID documents from over 170 countries worldwide.
- The product has been developed to allow flexibility in the range of Health Care verification services available supporting self-declaration, certificate upload and integration to healthcare providers.
- Ability to share status with third parties requesting to validate your health status.
How can the Health Passport drive the office reception process?
As the use cases for the Health Passport evolve, we are integrating the Health Passport with leading edge Kiosk technology. The contactless kiosk can integrate with the Health Passport to drive the process without physically touching the screen. The Health Passport can activate the kiosk process using a QR Code or NFC functionality, which can then kick-in and form part of the overall process to enter a building or an office space. The kiosk can be integrated with building management systems, HR systems and visitor records to provide a fully contact free process. The kiosk has a specialist array of cameras that enable the user to navigate the screen using voice control or vision control. Using vision control, the cursor moves around the screen based upon where the user is looking on the screen, holding focus on a button for a few seconds will represent a selection. The kiosk also has sensors that can measure body temperature & heart rate which can then form part of the decision-making process along with the data from the Health Passport in passing the checkpoint.
What are the use-cases to use this technology?
In its simplest form the Health Passport could be used on its own, as per the diagram on page 2, where a verifying agent uses the same app to validate another person’s status. This could be used by building concierges, offices or anywhere in the process where health status needs to be verified.
In a Health Passport & Kiosk Combination, we have developed the following use case:
We aim to make the experience of returning to an office space seamless by removing the friction and congestion that additional processing would cause within a reception or shared entry workspace. Employees and Visitors can complete their Health Passport process at home and come to the office with their standard access identification and validated Health Passport. We can integrate the data from the Health Passport into the local building management system to help drive the process flow throughout the building and minimise the number of times where physical contact is needed to gain access. The intention is that the kiosk can managed barrier access to enter a building.
When looking at the office use case for both the return to work and visitors to start entering building again, we will also be looking into developing a scheduling tool to try and manage congestion in the building by opening arrival timeslots. Where available and integration permitting, we would also look at integrating with a lift management system to notify employees / visitors of the lift to use, which would be pre-programmed to go to the appropriate floor, avoiding unnecessary stops at each floor to help with social distancing.
How can you be sure about congestion levels against your schedule?
As part of our broader thinking about space management and enforcing social distancing in confined spaces we have developed a proprietary We have a complete solution to bring together safe management of office space through managing scheduled access to buildings, providing contactless entry into the building and tracking and monitoring enclosed spaces to control social accelerator, Third Eye for Computer Vision, platform that can work with existing CCTV technology within a reception or lift space to help manage and control the flow of employees and visitors into these common areas.

The intention is to provide shared assurance between organisation and employees that it is safe to return to the office again.
