May 11, 2020, Morrisville, NC:  VIGILINT, a global telemedicine and medical advisory company headquartered in Morrisville, was featured in The Wall Street Journal discussing risk mitigation strategies for global companies’ return-to-work programs.  VIGILINT’s Chief Medical Officer, Eric Ossmann, MD, discussed the company’s newly implemented Virtual Clinic Solutions for COVID-19, designed to help companies protect their employees through critical containment measures, while organization’s leadership can focus on getting back to business.

With companies’ needs and goals in mind, VIGILINT provides essential medical oversight for return-to-work programs. VIGILINT’s Chief Executive Officer Dr. Sean Siler commented, “The challenge companies are facing is an overload of information from local and national authorities and how this impacts their operations and employees.  Our business model, in large part, is consultative medical direction thus we have the depth of experience and personnel to craft mitigation strategies to meet the immediate needs of each unique organization based on their specific risk profile.”  Siler went on to say, “Bottom line up front, keeping staff safe is now the utmost duty, responsibility, and the standard for workplaces.”

VIGILINT’s Virtual Clinic for COVID-19 includes five solutions that can be customized based on the need of an organization:

  • COVID-19 Medical Risk Management for Organizations
  • COVID-19 Worksite Screening Program
  • COVID-19 By-Department Testing Program
  • COVID-19 Confirmed Cases Return-to-Work Program
  • COVID-19 Critical Employees’ Testing Program

Dr. Ossmann reiterated, “With information changing so rapidly, VIGILINT acts as an efficient filter to sort the relevant from the noise in order to develop actionable medical risk mitigation strategies.  Our solutions are not one-size-fits-all, as example, a company may need medical oversight for an onsite viral diagnostic testing program while another may need a journey map and risk analysis for return to work, residence and travel.  It’s essential that each organization evaluate the risks that are relevant to their organization including operation requirements, locations and their ability to implement risk mitigation.”

Founded in 2006, VIGILINT is a veteran-owned, global telemedicine, medical

advisory, logistics and medical staffing company based in North Carolina.  The VIGILINT executive team has previous experience with major US corporations, the US military, National Security Staff, CDC, US Departments of Homeland Security and Health & Human Services, and academic medical centers.
