Citizen Care Pod Corporation has collaborated with WZMH Architects, PCL Construction, Insight Enterprises and Microsoft to launch a custom mobile testing unit to help reopen economy. The Citizen Care Pod is equipped with a suite of intelligent, customizable technologies like smart hand sanitizing stations that are powered by the trusted Microsoft Azure platform and Azure AI, which enable a safe and secure testing environment for patients and front-line healthcare workers. The Citizen Care Pod is a retrofitted 20-foot or 40-foot shipping container that is equipped with four to 10 testing stations that are designed to physically and safely separate the front-line testing administrator from the patient being tested or screened. In partnership with a lab diagnostics provider, all customizable testing will be administered outside of the pod to address concerns about testing in confined spaces. There are sanitization stations outside with connected hand sanitizers, as well as sanitization stations inside for the healthcare worker. Recognized as a safer, sustainable, and more energy-efficient approach to build, the Citizen Care Pod’s modular construction means it can be rapidly installed to any site, including high-traffic or remote locations.

Utilizing modular construction methods, PCL Construction is manufacturing and assembling the pods by retrofitting shipping containers with customizable options to support rapid delivery and installation to any site, including high-traffic or remote locations.

It is equipped with a suite of intelligent, customizable technologies powered by the trusted Microsoft Azure cloud platform and Azure AI, including the Insight Connected Platform and PCL’s Job Site Insights Internet of Things hubs, to enable safety and security in the physical testing environment for patients and front-line healthcare workers.

The customizable and portable structure is a ready-to-use solution for large-scale businesses, public works, sports and entertainment venues, airports, transit centres and more to support economic recovery. The core focus of the Citizen Care Pod is to not only provide relief to over-burdened hospitals, but also empower businesses and communities to be leaders in health promotion and disease prevention.

The Citizen Care Pod has applications beyond the COVID-19 pandemic, including the option to add capabilities for testing and screening for flu season and viral outbreaks, delivering vaccines, and can be further augmented to address future public health needs.
