[Medical Center]Hanyang University Hospital Introduced the Mobile Electronic List to Prevent the Spread of COVID-19

Due to the ongoing spread of COVID-19, to increase hospital visitors’ convenience, manage information correctly, and prevent further spread of the virus, the Mobile Electronic List was introduced on June 22, and contactless services are currently being enhanced. Using smartphones to register their entrance, the Mobile Electronic List increases accuracy in managing hospital visitors through easy and accurate self-authentication which prevents fallacies; thus, it is a visitor management system that can assist in preventing the disease from spreading when a person has been confirmed to have contracted it. Hospital visitors need to identify themselves through an NFC tag or by scanning a QR code placed at the entrance and having their temperature checked, as well as reporting any respiratory symptoms or travel abroad to easily confirm entrance registration. After this procedure, the person does not need to go through the self-authentication process and only has to check their symptom status. The personal information and visit history will be deleted automatically after 4 weeks. Moreover, for hospital visitors who do not possess smartphones or have difficulties in filling out the mobile health questionnaires, questionnaire forms will still be available. This allows solving inconveniences when visiting the hospital such as confusion at the entrance and reduced waiting time for entering. Yoon Ho-joo, director of the hospital, said that “the Mobile Electronic List is expected to be a great help in rapidly detecting the movements of an infected person to prevent the spread of COVID-19,” and that “we will do our best to create a safe environment where hospital visitors can get treatment in a safe and reliable environment.” Global News Team Translation by: Park Gyeong-min
