Covid-19: Protecting Pharmaceutical and Healthcare Industries with Enhanced Visitor Management

CovidPharma-1TDS are working at the forefront to support global organisations' return to work with confidence. Our goal is to assist businesses with an action plan to protect against the pandemic and effectively set best practices when reopening to protect your people, property, and assets. 

Pharmaceutical and Healthcare centres deal with a diverse range of technology, active ingredients and machinery, coupled with large numbers of employers, contractors and other visitors on a daily basis. 

 

Digital Visitor Management in the Pharmaceutical and Healthcare Industries

In highly regulated Pharmaceutical and Healthcare industries, clients seek to safeguard compliance by assessing visitor risk prior to granting access to the facility. Health screening questions are presented to all visitors with subsequent screens dependent on client responses. 

By providing a visible record of all visitors and contractors and their security screening responses the organisation safeguards compliance with industry specific regulations.

Key Advantages of a Digital Visitor Management Solution for Pharmaceutical and Healthcare Industries

Complete Visitor Transparency

TDS Visitor's back-end shows a live database view of all locations, offices and collection points, giving you a real-time look at your global facilities. 

Custom Workflows at Each Facility 

With different facilities requiring different levels of security, the 'custom workflows' option is a great advantage for companies welcoming visitors on a global scale. This functionality allows companies to standardise certain elements across their global estate, but also allowing for certain changes on a local level. The simple drag-and-drop feature allows for companies to add steps such as NDA Signing, Photo Capture and Instructional Videos to the check-in process, all from one centralised configuration.

Detailed Insights and Reporting Suite 

TDS Visitor has a comprehensive and detailed reporting suite which allows authorised personnel to view a companies full global outlook, by location, office, registration type, visit reason and feedback. These reports can be pulled by how or any specific data range, with an in-built simple export to Excel or CSV feature included.

Scalable Security 

While many variables may differ across locations from a security perspective one critical element remains the same, unwanted guests are unwanted everywhere. By leveraging the power of global watch lists, your security team can ensure any unwanted guests are screened with any action necessary taken in advance of the visitors arrival on-site.

How Digital Enhancements will Aid the Pharmaceutical and Healthcare Industry Post Covid-19

As the Pharmaceutical and Healthcare industries continue to become more complex with multi-located supply chains per company, the demand placed on the these industries is calling them to go digital now as a matter of necessity and urgency particularly during and after Covid-19.

 

Here are 4 simple ways Pharmaceutical and Healthcare industries can benefit from a visitor management system now and following the strain of Covid-19. 

1. Contactless Visitor Experience and Workflows

As we now know, limiting human contact is one sure way to slow down the spread of Covid-19. Creating a contactless experience within the pharmaceutical and healthcare industry by sending upcoming visitors a unique QR code to scan or an email invitation are ways to seamlessly get the benefits of a digital visitor management system while maintaining a strong safety procedure during Covid-19.

Visitor-Invite

TDS Visitor can be integrated with our Access Control solution, meaning visitors can scan the QR code sent to them directly from their mobile devices to enter turnstiles, doorways, and other types of access control. With this code, visitors can access authorised areas of the building during the times allocated while maintaining a safe and contactless experience.

 

2. Sharing site specific regulations before employees/visitors enter site

Continuously regulating employees/visitors/contractors entry onto each site, is now extremely important to reduce the spread of the virus further. 

TDS have adapted to the daily changes and updates regarding how the virus changed from a virus to an epidemic, and now, a global pandemic.

TDS is confident that through our visitor functionality updates via our new Custom Alert function on all Visitor Kiosks, Invitations and iPad's that we have provided the necessary tools to support organisations throughout the journey.

TDS are constantly maintaining the situation and working with our customers to ensure they are positioned to protect their employees, contractors, colleagues, and guests through the requirements of our updated visitor functions.

3. Allowing essential people on-site at any time 

Safety and security is a significant concern for all pharmaceutical and healthcare companies to protect their products, especially during this time when these companies are an essential industry, globally. To make sure sites are as secure as possible, setting up watch-lists with a visitor management system makes sure no unwanted or at risk individuals can enter your site.

A watchlist integration automatically checks visitors entered in the system against internally generated “do not allow” lists, as well as the ability to automatically download government watch lists, keeping your employees and other visitors safer than ever while on site.

QR codes boost security at specific times by monitoring how long a person is allocated to a certain area of your site and where exactly they are permitted to gaining access on-site in a contactless and safe manner. 

 

4. Incorporating a cloud-based solution following the strain of Covid-19 

A cloud-based visitor management solution like TDS' allows for all necessary changes and updates to be implemented in real-time, off-site which is increasingly important for the storage and safety of sensitive data within pharmaceutical and healthcare organisations.
