Irys COVID-19 Support Tool
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Irys developed COVID-19 Web App to help governments and organizations better collect and analyze data relevant to the national health contingency.
The World Health Organization (WHO) declared the infectious disease COVID-19 on March 11, 2020, as a pandemic caused by infection with a new virus of the Coronaviridae family called SARS-CoV-2. The first cases of COVID-19 were reported in December 2019 in Wuhan (Hubei province), China, and globally as of January 2021, approximately 90,000,000 cases have been detected, and 2,000,000 deaths have been reported.
To respond to the pandemic, Irys developed COVID-19 Web App to help governments and organizations better collect and analyze data relevant to the national health contingency. To support our clients and any other city or organization, we put two products at the service of the community:
- Mobile application: allows the general public to access quickly and easily information and resources related to COVID-19. Users have access to a self-assessment tool, a module to report price increases and social gatherings, official information resources, and an interactive map with a heat map showing the areas of focus of contagion.
- Dashboard: a web application that allows medical institutions, municipal governments, or decision-makers of the Ministry of Health to manage all collected data, access the minimum electronic medical record, measure in real-time the results of the participants, and visualize the sources of infection on an interactive map.
COVID-19 has paralyzed people’s lives around the world, small businesses, companies, events but most of all, it has threatened and taken the lives of millions. At Irys, our mission is to improve communities and enhance the quality of life. In line with our mission, we believe our COVID-19 Support app has aided authorities worldwide to prevent, control, and counteract the spread of the COVID-19 and bring support to citizens.
The Irys COVID-19 Support Tool launched on March 31st, 2020, has benefitted citizens and governments/community decision-makers during the COVID-19 pandemic by preventing the spread of the virus, providing citizens with essential resources, and allowing governments/community decision-makers to support citizens and protect the health of their families, coworkers, and communities. Since the tool’s launch, more than 5,000 users across the United States, Mexico, Europe, South America, and Africa have used and benefited from the COVID-19 Support Tool solution.
The Irys COVID-19 Support Tool has helped reduce the risk of spreading COVID-19 and allowing city and community leaders to use the data collected to make informed decisions and effectively manage community needs. Additionally, the COVID-19 Support tool has allowed vulnerable populations and those in underserved communities to have access to a tool that provides them with an easy way to receive reliable information and resources to prevent the spread of the virus and protect the health of their families and community members.
"At Irys, our mission is to improve the quality of life in communities, and with the COVID-19 Support Tool, we are doing just that. By providing this tool for free, we seek to support those governments and organizations that don't have enough resources to respond efficiently in critical situations. With the launch of the COVID-19 Support tool, we hope to provide the general public with a practical tool for COVID-19 resources”
