We spoke about our product: CoVER (COVID-19 Emergency Response Platform and its key components in our last post.
In this post, we will explore the features and key elements of the first component: Command and Control Center which is the key component and brain behind CoVER. It helps in visualizing the COVID-19 spread at the macro-level and if required lets the administrators drill down further to understand the micro-level situation i.e. analysis from state to the district to the sub-district and even to the patients who have COVID-19 infection.
Some of the features of the command and control center are:
- Dashboards: Dashboards are a snapshot in an easy-to-read visualized form, that authenticates the users to view, monitor, and manage a huge array of information available. There can be different dashboards created with the help of widgets like charts, a map view, a table, etc.
- AI-based Predictions: The platform provides various predictions like the number of beds, ventilators, PPE kits that are required in the future, an estimated number of positive COVID-19 cases, deaths, and recovered cases, etc. This helps the government to get prepared for the future and be proactive rather than being reactive in handling any situation that might occur.
- Standard Operating Procedures: Provides a set of step-by-step instructions to set thresholds with clear operational procedures/actions. This helps all the stakeholders carry out complex routine operations. SOPs aim to achieve efficiency, quality output, and uniformity of performance while reducing miscommunication and failures in any emergency situation.
- Alerts & Notifications: Another vital feature of the command and control center is that the platform can receive and send notifications to the concerned departments, stakeholders in no time. This is helpful in cases when urgent help is required.
- Orchestration and integration of multiple data sources: The platform provides a rich palette of integration tools and data preparation pipelines to acquire data from various sources including e-Gov, mobile applications, web services, and open data systems. The platform can rapidly connect to any external data source and then, verify, filter, and transform the data. The same can be used to create dashboard widgets and historical reports in absolutely no time.
Let us have a look at a few use cases:
- State, district, city, county, hospital, quarantine facility, and other facilities wise case summary of total cases, positive, negative, deaths, recovered, quarantined citizens at home and facilities, detected cases and suspected cases. The same can be visually displayed in the form of heat maps and KPIs (Key Performance Indicators) and SOPs.
- Geo-map and number of isolation wards/quarantine: Total number, under construction and occupied, number of hospitals (public and private) along with beds, masks, PPE kits.
- Geo-map and KPI for the hospital, quarantine center occupancy: Total number and occupancy.
- Diagnostics: Number of samples taken (total and lab-wise), number of testing kits available, number of samples tested completely (total and lab-wise)
- Analytics: Predictive engine to model the spread of COVID with existing movement trace data of mandated quarantine.
Below are some examples of dashboards that can be created on CoVER:
A world-level dashboard: Gives a view of the current day statistics across different countries in the world and different states of India. It also shows where a particular city is w.r.t country-level and state level.
Capacity: A dashboard with analytics on facilities marked for COVID – 19 patients/suspects. For e.g. Hospitals, Total beds available, etc.
Media: A readily available dashboard for government officials with information that can be made public.
Lab Reports: A dashboard analytics based on the information being received by various labs in the city
Clinical Dashboard: It provides data on the number of kits available, ventilators, etc. It can also show data in the form of a visualization based on the clinical analysis by age: admitted or under-observation
All this information together can help the government to react assertively and promptly with the set of digital tools specifically designed to help curb the spread of coronavirus.
