Microsoft and UnitedHealth offer companies free app to screen employees for coronavirus

MSFT UNH

UnitedHealth Group and Microsoft are offering companies a coronavirus screening app called ProtectWell that provides a daily symptom screener to help clear employees to go to work or directs them to be tested if they are at risk for infection. As U.S. companies struggle to bring employees back to work under stringent new safety requirements, health-care and tech companies are rolling out new services that go beyond temperature checks. "A worker in a nursing home for example … we would want to be doing the symptom checking every single day, and then be put into a testing schedule that allows them to get tested, anywhere from three to… every five days," said Ken Ehlert, UnitedHealth Group chief scientific officer, adding "different folks in the population need different levels of testing." The firm's Collective Go service is partnering with Bay Area start-ups Genalyte, Color and Everlywell to provide employers with on-site and at-home molecular testing for current infections, as well as antibody tests which can show whether a person was previously infected. UnitedHealth's Ehlert notes that availability could also be an issue for some employers to adopt wide-scale testing, so it will be important to prioritize testing programs for workers who are most at risk of getting sick.

Smithfield Foods, a subsidiary of Hong Kong-listed WH Group, the world’s largest pork company, said on Wednesday it would pay a $100 million “Responsibility Bonus” to hourly production and distribution team members as a thank-you for putting meat on tables across America.

UnitedHealth, the largest U.S. health insurer, on Wednesday beat quarterly profit expectations, boosted by strength across its businesses, and maintained its 2020 outlook while it continues to assess the impact of COVID-19.

For the quarter ended March 31, the company reported medical loss ratio — the percentage of premiums paid out for medical services — of 81.0%, a decrease of 1% from a year earlier, primarily due to the return of the health insurance tax.
