Experienced Tracers and Investigators
With approximately 4,000 contact tracers, case investigators, and clinicians, PCG can quickly provide you with the staff you need, fully trained and prepared to produce results. We provide:
- Patient outreach and education from qualified staff to educate cases and contacts about isolation and quarantine. This includes hygiene in the home setting and advice on resources and supports for individuals of varying ages and health conditions.
- Training that ensures all investigators and tracers are fully prepared. We can train state, local, and agency staff.
- Our network of physicians that includes infectious disease experts. They offer extensive medical expertise inclusive of epidemiology and infectious disease.
Focus on Local Health Departments and Communities
PCG recruits from the communities we serve, which ensures that our tracers and investigators are connected to their community, supporting the health economies of your local communities. Teaming with local agencies, we have a strong focus on adopting new approaches and integrating components of existing approaches from Tribal and local health departments, universities, and neighboring states.
Data and Technology: Utilization and Integration
Exposure Notification app technology is an emerging solution to quickly and anonymously notify those who have been exposed in a private and secure manner—but an app alone won’t curb the spread of infection. PCG can ensure that the app is complemented with the human element to ensure widespread support and use. We can provide a supportive and engaging voice for a contact to reach by phone when they are notified of an exposure. This ensures that the information and resources they need to successfully get tested and quarantine are communicated in a clear, more personal way.
PCG can also introduce our own systems to the process as well as integrate with existing systems, such as Salesforce, CommCare, AWS Connect, and more. We have the technology and expertise to handle large volumes of data and conduct essential analyses quickly. We already have data-sharing agreements in place with many state health and human service agencies.
