Solutions

The experience of the first countries that have suffered the pandemic has shown that digital solutions are a key weapon for communities that fight against the virus. Digital CONECTOR facilitates access to the state of innovation and development of these solutions

This site focuses on digital solutions and does not include at this time information on technology related to drugs or medical devices (diagnostic tests, respirators, ICU supports, PPE, etc.). It is not ruled out to include it later due to its need and impact.

Various initiatives have been identified that have similar functionalities to support the processes associated with the fight against the pandemic, as well as the management of the associated information. For your organization we propose an initial classification that will be revised over time:

Solutions for detection and diagnosis

Solutions that allow self-diagnosis and triage based on the application of complex protocols with artificial intelligence or that use simple questionnaires or tests generally published by health authorities. Some health management applications also incorporate this type of questionnaires or tests. As they have greater functionalities, they are described in that section.

There are currently hundreds of websites offering self-testing and self-testing questionnaires. The protocols used are equally varied, and in any case, those who are effectively applying the officers of each region or community should be warned as they are linked according to the result to a first service proposal.

We anticipate an evolution of these solutions towards more advanced recommendations related to the management and control of the pandemic.

Your data is encrypted and stored on your mobile phone. If a TraceTogether user is a confirmed case (touch wood!), they will be asked by MOH to upload their logs, so that the MOH can reach out to close contacts to provide care. TraceTogether helps us protect our loved ones and families so that we do not spread the virus to them unknowingly. It also helps us support the work of contact tracers and healthcare workers by combating the spread of COVID-19 together. TraceTogether's functionality will be suspended after the epidemic subsides.
