Quore Helps Hotel Properties Transition to Isolation Wards for Covid-19 Patient Overflow

Operations Management Platform Enables Hotels to Support Health and Safety Compliance for Those Looking to Help Communities in Need

USA, Franklin, Tennessee. April 09, 2020

Quore, the leading provider of workflow management and productivity tools for hotels, today announced its Quore Aid Program for any hotel converting its property into a COVID-19 isolation ward or temporary medical facility. Quore has adapted its suite of solutions to allow for adherence to local and national healthcare guidelines to support housing facilities as they determine the right precautions each hotel isolation ward should follow in order to ensure the health and safety of staff, medical professionals and guests.

Individual states, counties and municipalities are actively seeking properties that are largely vacant due to growing Stay-At-Home mandates to serve as COVID-19 isolation wards. The goal is to relieve the pressure on hospitals, allowing them to focus treatment on the sickest of patients, and non-severe cases can be moved to an isolation ward. Hotels are prime real estate for these facilities, as most business and vacation travel has been cancelled.

Hotel isolation wards may be used for various scenarios, including for recovering patients, individuals exposed to the virus that may or may not show symptoms, moderately ill people awaiting test results, and individuals that may not be able to self-isolate in a home due to high-risk family members or personal homelessness.

"We want to support communities across the country in their efforts to stop the spread of COVID-19, and enable our hotel customers to contribute in a safe and secure way," said Scott Schaedle, Founder and CEO of Quore. "Not only does our platform help properties optimize operations, but it enables staff and guests to communicate with little-to-no physical interaction. We're providing a baseline of health and safety precautions each property or location needs to update to be in compliance with local and national guidelines, so each property can quickly adapt to new mandates and remain focused on its new role in ending this pandemic."

The Quore platform enables hotel management and staff to limit face-to-face interactions, implement mobile communications with guests, and access modifiable templates that guide staff through recommended and/or mandated procedures that are updated in real time. These include isolation room set up and turnover, hand and hygiene protocol, trash collection, sanitation requirements, signage placement and other actions to ensure the highest level of health and safety compliance throughout the property.

Hotel Design: Home Away From Home

With the rise of the sharing economy and the peer-to-peer marketplace for lodging options, hoteliers are re-thinking the look, feel and appeal of their locations. There is an emphasis on re-creating a feeling of homeyness - a comfortable, cozy and inviting space that feels like home. 'This is accomplished through the careful selection of furniture design, paint colors, lighting design, artwork, bathroom fixtures and textile accessories. In addition, some hotels are providing their guests with upscale amenities, such as a book and movie library, home-style kitchenettes, a coffee machine with locally-sourced beans and tea, or even a batch of fresh-baked cookies. Similarly, there is a growing design trend based on the concept of place-making. Travelers are searching for experiences that are unique and authentic to the locale in which they find themselves, and so hotel designers are integrating a sense of place into their work. This is partially achieved by incorporating traditional artisanal crafts and other local artwork into hotel rooms and communal spaces. Another design trend includes the creation of full-service, co-working environments within the hotel. Guests don't like to stay alone in their room when they need to work, so now they can go downstairs to the lobby-or up to the roof-to work among others. These areas encourage guests - and non-guests alike - to stay as long as they like and to partake of hotel amenities. Finally, recognizing the importance of the Wellness Movement, some designers are exploring how room design can increase the likelihood of deep and restorative sleep. Creating dark and quiet spaces, blocking excessive light, providing guests with a selection of different kinds of pillows, and the ability to control room temperature, are a few of the best practices in this area. These are some of the architecture and design topics that will be covered in the November issue of the Hotel Business Review.
