Argentina chooses GNU Health for COVID19 observatory and contact tracing

Item posted by Luis Falcon <meanmicio> on Fri 04 Dec 2020 11:15:11 AM UTC.

In the context of the GNU Health International Conference, GHCon2020, Bioengineer Ingrid Spessotti, Dr Fiorella de la Lama and health professionals from Diamante Municipality presented the use of GNU Health as a COVID-19 observatory and contact tracing tool.

The Government of Argentina, through the National Scientific and Technological Promotion Bureau (Agencia Nacional de Promoción Científica y Tecnológica), chose GNU Health as the system for management of epidemics in municipalities. This project is lead by Dr. Fernando Sassetti, head of the Public Health office at the National University of Entre Rios.

Health professionals were trained in GNU Health epidemiological surveillance system, as well as the contact tracing functionality.

Spessotti explained some of the functionality and benefits of these GNU Health packages, for instance:

  • Real-time observatory and epidemiological surveillance
  • Automatic notification of notifiable disease to the National Ministry of Health
  • Reporting on cases and contacts
  • Calls registry, monitoring of signs and symptoms.
  • Risk factors on each individual (eg, chronic diseases, socioeonomic status...)
  • Geolocalization of suspected or confirmed cases
  • Clinical management and followup for both inpatient and outpatient cases.

We're very proud and grateful to the Government of Argentina for choosing Libre Software in the public administration, particularly in the public health system. Choosing Libre software is choosing open science and digital sovereignty for the sake of the people of Argentina and the rest of the world.

The presentation can be downloaded from the GHCon2020 conference.
