MAXIMUS Implements NexJ Connected Wellness to Identify Potential Cases of COVID-19
Toronto – June 4, 2020 – NexJ Health Inc. (NexJ Health), a provider of advanced virtual care for chronic disease prevention and management announced today that MAXIMUS (NYSE:MMS), a leading provider of government services worldwide, is implementing the NexJ Connected Wellness platform to ensure the safety of its employees and operational continuity in support of mission critical government programs it operates.
Most of the government programs MAXIMUS supports provide a vital lifeline to people – putting many MAXIMUS employees on the front lines of the COVID-19 response to help individuals and families access vital health care and social safety-net programs. Underscoring the critical nature of this work, many of the programs MAXIMUS operates have been designated as essential services.
As part of the Connected Wellness platform, MAXIMUS launched a Clear2Work mobile application within its U.S. operations as a preventative intervention to screen employees for illness prior to coming into their office location. The platform supports digital certifications for facility access to help identify potential cases of COVID-19 in an effort to reduce the spread of illness in the workplace. MAXIMUS designed efficient building access practices supported by configuration within the NexJ Connected Wellness platform. MAXIMUS, with the support of NexJ Health, executed a national rollout of its Clear2Work mobile application to over 15,000 MAXIMUS employees and contractors in 52 USA locations.
“The impacts from COVID-19 have reshaped how MAXIMUS does business. By keeping essential government services open and accessible to people in need, our employees make a significant difference in the lives of citizens every day. The implementation of Clear2Work builds on existing social distancing and rigorous cleaning protocols in our sites that must remain open, giving MAXIMUS another tool to keep essential workers safe through the COVID-19 pandemic, and also promote wellness moving forward,” says Bruce Caswell, MAXIMUS President and Chief Executive Officer.
“Providing employees safe facility access is essential to return to work during the COVID-19 pandemic,” said William M. Tatham, Founder & Executive Chair of NexJ Health. “Combining this with physical, mental and financial wellness is the epitome of corporate wellness.”
