Sharecare's software-as-a-service (SAAS) solution establishes a global baseline for health security, requiring hotels to verify their health protocols on an ongoing basis across more than 360 expert-validated standards. Utilizing a mobile-friendly AI chatbot, the verification dashboard details a property's real-time health security status across health and hygiene protocols, cleaning products and procedures, ventilation, physical distancing, the guest experience, and health safety communication with guests and employees.
Addressing the critical need to establish confidence with guests and travel planners in the age of COVID-19 and beyond, Sharecare's health security verification comes with a "seal of approval" – the Sharecare Health Security VERIFIED® with Forbes Travel Guide badge – for hotels to display on their websites and on-property.
This news comes on the heels of Internova Travel Group selecting Sharecare and Forbes Travel Guide to validate the procedures and protocols at more than 50,000 hotels booked through its systems, each of which Internova expects to be Sharecare Health Security VERIFIED® with Forbes Travel Guide by the end of Q1 2022.
