Newcastle health specialist set to support pilot of Cov-ID mobile app

A North East-based occupational health and wellness firm has partnered with a digital media tech company to develop an app designed to reduce the spread of coronavirus.

Catenae Innovation PLC has signed an agreement with Newcastle Premier Health (NPH) to create an app to record an individual’s COVID-19 test status.

The Cov-ID project is a joint initiative by a consortium of companies - led by the Z/Yen Group - to create a GDPR compliant identity documentation exchange system

Mark Philpott, managing director of NPH, commented: “As a responsible and ethical occupational health provider, we understand the importance of enabling our clients and other local businesses to return to work safely and at an appropriate time in line with the best scientific and government advice available.

“We are looking forward to combining our clinical and occupational health expertise within the Cov-ID project, with the expertise of the other consortium members.”

Guy Meyer, interim chief executive officer of Catenae, added: “We are delighted that occupational health and wellness business, Newcastle Premier Health, will pilot the company’s Cov-ID mobile app technology on a selection of its employees in its efforts to return to work safely.

“Upon publication of a proof of concept, which is expected to take place within the next few weeks, the app will be available to be rolled out to benefit businesses and organisations as current restrictions begin to ease. We look forward to updating the market in due course.”
