UH Expands Use of TempTraq® System Wide to Support Frontline Care Workers in the Fight Against COVID-19
CLEVELAND–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Apr 20, 2020–
To protect health care workers, patients and families, and help flatten the curve of COVID-19’s progression, University Hospitals (UH), one of the largest health care systems in Ohio, will begin to expand the use of TempTraq from Blue Spark Technologies to specific areas within the UH health system.
“This technology was originally introduced to University Hospitals in 2016 by the UH Ventures and Innovation group, as Blue Spark was looking to validate the use of the TempTraq patches in the clinical setting. It’s worked very well at UH Seidman Cancer Center and we realized it could have an even bigger impact in the battle against COVID-19 if we started using in targeted University Hospitals locations and departments,” said David Sylvan, President of UH Ventures.
