Many businesses and companies are back at work or are gearing up to go back to work.  That's why UnitedHealth Group and Microsoft teamed up to launch an app that can help.

It's called ProtectWell.  The application provides employers and employees help with returning to work based on CDC guidelines.  

It uses artificial intelligence to ask questions about the employee's health. It also provides resources to support a safe environment. 

"Number one: it's easy to use," Dr. Robert Kantor, the Market Chief Medical Officer for UnitedHealth Group, said.  "It also provides the employee a feeling of feeling safe in returning to work, colleagues can feel that coworkers are going to be screened before they go to work, and employers can feel like they have a return to workplace process ready to go."

UnitedHealth Group is rolling it out to its 325,000 works.

The app is available on smartphones or tablets.  It is free for United States employers to use.
