COVID-CONNECT is a pre-triage support application and patient flow management system that allows digital COVID-19 symptoms tracking at a distance. Users can track COVID-19 symptoms via a simple application down-loadable via the App Store. A Care Coordination Center managed by medical professionals reaches out to pa-tients who request a call back and/or who have potential COVID-19 symptoms to ensure they seek the right care at the right time. The system is pre-triage as it aims to relieve the health care system from being overrun by people and can monitor those with no/mild symptoms.
COVID-CONNECT is currently available to all living in Greater Accra and will be soon available to anyone living in Ghana. This system supports the University of Ghana Medical Centre (UGMC) hospital to coordinate those in Greater Accra who have suspected COVID-19 symptoms.
