In our common goal to #BeatCOVID19, Local Government Units (LGUs) are encouraged to utilize digital solutions for citizen reporting (passive surveillance), close contact tracing (active surveillance), and to implement data-driven policy decisions guided by scientific models made accessible to local governments.
The DOH is providing a means for LGUs to gain access to a set of multi-channel applications developed with partners and integrated to the main database of DOH. These set of applications are donated to the DOH for contact tracing and local analysis. It has complied with standards on data privacy, security, and technical integration together with the National Privacy Commission (NPC) and the Department of Information and Communication Technology (DICT).
Citizens can report their symptoms in any of these integrated reporting channels:
Citizen reports are verified and monitored by local government units with active LGU accounts at KontraCOVID
Reports that need further medical consultations are referred to volunteer doctors for consultation or hospitals for testing
Close contact tracing is initiated for confirmed COVID-19 positive cases
Data of verified cases and lab results are analyzed using scientific models and visualized for LGUs
These technologies are provided for FREE and can be accessed upon completion of registration and training.
