Managing disease outbreaks can be challenging for cruise ship companies, as there are a lot of different components to consider and track. Protecting passengers from any contagious diseases is the primary concern, and finding a way to do so that maximizes efficiency is the ideal solution. Contact tracing is a key component that can be extremely difficult to track manually, so using digital resources is a great alternative to ensure everyone is kept safe and informed.
This is why SimplyCast developed the Cruise Ship Outbreak use case. This automated system allows cruise ship staff to trace passenger contact, manage outbreaks, and send alerts to passengers as required. Tracking the potential spread of infection on cruise ships is a crucial factor to consider, and digital resources can help make this simpler for the company.
There are many reasons to use the automated system for cruise ship outbreaks and we have developed a list of our top 3.
Benefits of the Automated Solution
SimplyCast foresaw the need for a contact tracing system for cruise ships to manage potential infection spread. With illnesses such as COVID-19 that are highly contagious, it is important to have a system in place to help manage the passengers if there is an outbreak. Things can easily spiral out of control if not handled quickly and effectively, which is why contact tracing using automation is a great alternative to manual tracking. These companies are wanting to manage challenges such as tracking passenger movement throughout the ship, determining when guests may have had contact with someone carrying a disease, and handling the response to an outbreak. These things can be achieved using a variety of our pre-developed automated tools, and here is our top 3 benefits to choosing this method.
Reduce Manual Workload
Since tracking each individual passenger and who they come in contact with would be an extremely difficult task to handle manually, this system allows each passenger to check in using their phone. This information will be stored and timestamped in case of an outbreak and can easily be used to notify anyone that was involved.
Use Guest's Technology
Since the majority of guests will already have a cellular device, this solution helps make things more accessible by allowing them to check into locations using their mobile phones. QR codes and shortcodes are two examples of how a passenger can confirm their location, and this can be done on their own.
Easily Alert Passengers
In the event of an outbreak, those who had an overlapping location with an infected passenger will receive a notification directly to their device. This can be done through a variety of communication channels and will include any necessary information and next steps.
That’s the summary of what it takes to create a digital solution for cruise ship disease control and it’s only scratching the surface of what is possible when it comes to using automated technology to help this management process run smoother.
