Digital Smarts - Smart Thermometers Used to Track Illnesses at School

You are here

A national program called Fluency uses smart thermometers to track the spread of diseases in schools. The devices record student temperatures and symptoms and link to an app so the information can be shared anonymously with school nurses and parents. The Fluency program and smart thermometer technology were developed by Kinsa Health to detect illness in real-time, helping individuals and communities respond before it spreads.
