Evident ID mobile app with Acuant selfie biometrics to help businesses, stadiums and cities reopen

Evident ID has released a SaaS platform and mobile application with facial biometrics from Acuant for identity verification to assist businesses with their return to work policies and risk management strategies during the COVID-19 crisis, the company announced.

Evident Health Status collects data to monitor potential coronavirus exposure in a workplace, but does not jeopardize medical records’ privacy, the company claims. The application includes additional features such as thermal scanning to ensure a safe work experience.

To maintain privacy and security, Evident verifies user identity and asks for consent before collecting or sharing healthcare records. Privacy compliance and data protection company TrustArc is reviewing the app’s privacy by design to assess its compliance to privacy standards such as HIPAA and FCRA, GDPR and CCPA. Evident Health Status features consent tracking and management, data minimization, cryptography and recurring identity verification such as document scanning and fraud-proofing thanks to a partnership with Acuant.

“Businesses around the world are navigating the difficult task of allowing employees to return to the workplace safely amid COVID-19,” said David Thomas, CEO of Evident, in a prepared statement. “Evident Health Status simplifies the process by orchestrating consent and data sharing between three critical stakeholders – your business, health providers and employees – all while ensuring employee privacy is protected. Our solution is designed to evolve as the world’s response to COVID-19 progresses.”

Some of the companies that have chosen to reduce health risks with Evident Health Status include Show Pros, a venue event staffing and crowd management company, the Bank of America Stadium, Spectrum Center, and public assembly facilities in North and South Carolina, as well as the Atlanta metro area.

“We have hundreds of employees on the front lines enforcing social distancing and eventually the reopening of public areas,” said Todd Stewart, President at Show Pros Entertainment Services, in a prepared statement. “As we adapt to the new normal of the event industry, we need a way to collect and track health information at scale, both to keep our employees and the general public safe. Manually gathering data takes too many people to deploy and is too slow to respond to frequent changes and guidance. Evident’s solution is helping us protect our employees’ safety and privacy, as well as helping us safeguard our business.”

The automated platform collects and analyzes health data in real-time to deliver instant policy-driven recommendations for employees. The process is in line with public health guidelines and reviewed by a health and privacy advisory council. Advisors include Dr. Kavita Patel and Human Resources leader Coretha Rushing and other privacy, medical and human resources experts.

The mobile application interacts with employees to assess symptoms, temperature and contact history, it can be linked to official healthcare records, provide recommendations or risk scores in real time over an end-to-end encrypted system with full consent controls.

Last year, Evident ID launched a new Enterprise Account Recovery offering with facial biometrics and liveness detection to help organizations reduce data breaches, prevent takeovers and protect against advanced threats.
