The COVID-19 Monitoring System App is India’s first automated monitoring app. The app is developed by US and Hyderabad headquartered startup Vera Smart Healthcare. The technology can help the Telangana state in tracking, monitoring, and providing real-time analysis through live surveillance of Covid-19 patients.
The smart app allows health callers to handle more than 1,500 calls along with smart chatbot integration. Health authorities can keep in touch with the patients. It also provides facts and figures to the various stakeholders. It notifies the progress of the symptomatic or confirmed positive, quarantined cases.
G. Srinivas Rao, Director of Public Health, Telangana said, “The system has helped us first, track and monitor the foreign returnees; community spread and already hospitalised for severe acute respiratory infection (SARS) very early to control spread of COVID.”
Dharma Teja Nukarapu, Founder and CEO of Vera Healthcare said, “Our technology is based on IoT, Smart devices, GPS and Geotag via a super lite centralised App, which is installed in the phones of all associates from the ground level till the Chief Minister’s Office. The system was built by Vera in record time. Every stakeholder got comprehensive training on using the App. With instant trace and trackability, accurate information is pushed to the authorities even if there is a breach.”
Vera Smart Healthcare had earlier helped Telangana, Andhra Pradesh, and Tamil Nadu to create detailed health profiles of 50,000 people across these states. The startup has also developed a first-ever mobile hospital in India to increase the accessibility of healthcare facilities in rural areas.
