The adoption of MyCare by the gigantic global hotel brand InterContinental Hotel Group to help secure the lives of its customers and workers was quite awesome, and many tried to envisage the kind of adoption VeChain would be getting via the partnership between the hotel and DNV GL.
However, another big announcement/adoption update is here for the VeChain-based infection risk management and traceability platform My Care.
The world-renowned assurance firm DNV GL which is a partner of VeChain, has declared that it is now working with the third-largest hotel chain in India, ITC Hotels, to develop an assurance program which is based on the DNV GL’s MyCare to batter the influence of infection, especially in this pandemic period.
Managing infection risk set by COVID-19 and proving to customers beyond doubt as the world tries to reopen back remains paramount especially for hotels in India, as many states in the country are lessening the lockdown curbs.
To solve this problem, owned by ITC Limited group of companies and has over 100 hotels India, approached DNV GL to develop the ‘WeAssure’ program, which is based on MyCare infection risk management framework.
The WeAssure program is designed to give guest optimum assurance that ITC Hotels maintains strict hygiene and disinfection practices that are of clinical hygiene standards. The program will assist the hotel group in reviewing and upgrading its hygiene and safety standards across its hotels in the country to be able to meet the national and international standards and regulations.
ITC Hotels partnered DNV GL to achieve the development of the program, and the collaboration will help achieve a new standard in the hospitality industry.
The COO at ITC Hotels, Anil Chadha, said the company is committed to ensuring the safety and wellbeing of its guests. DNV GL will be in charge of accessing the implementation of the program using the Maturity Assessment Protocol which will spread across Safety & Emerging Pathogen Management, Hygiene, and Health standards.
The hotel processes and practices would also be assessed by the third-party certification and assessment company DNV GL.
The CEO of DNV GL, Luca Crisciotti, said it is working with hospitals on daily basis for quality and infection prevention management, hence it now understands the need for the right risk-based prevention scheme and standards.
Luca said his company would be using a robust system to help the hotel group to regain and maintain its trust from the customer’s end.
Remember that DNV GL developed MyCare application with the help of VeChain blockchain technology, to offer companies quality standards in infection and risk management by combining HSE management systems, healthcare standards, maturity safety ratings, and superlative practices.
