Kurukshetra, September 29
To monitor the health of home-isolated Covid patients, the district administration has asked them to fill their vital parameters on the ‘e-care’ mobile application.
The patients are being provided the mobile application and are being motivated to use it to fill their temperature, oxygen levels, throat condition and breathing conditions. At present, over 600 people in the district are under home isolation, of which over 110 are using the application to update their vitals since last week.
An official said: “A mobile application was prepared on the directions of the DC to monitor the Covid activities and the health of patients. After a person tests positive, a message with the link of the application is sent on their registered mobile number. They are also provided information about how to use the application and fill the vitals. In case the patient doesn’t own a smartphone then the field staff of the Health Department visiting them can also fill their vitals. The patients are being motivated to fill their vitals twice a day and also give remarks about their health condition and other related issues they are facing. The data is shared with the Medical Officers of the area concerned to keep a watch on their health.”
Besides, the administration has also started providing the status of the Covid tests results to the Kurukshetra residents through the official website of the district. The person needs to enter the registered mobile number, which was provided to the Health Department during sampling, an OTP will be generated, and the person will be able to get the status of his Covid test.
DC Sharandeep Kaur said: “The application has been prepared to curb the virus spread, monitor Covid patients and other activities in real time. It is being shared with patients and those under home isolation are being asked to fill their vitals and give remarks as well. It will help the patients to remain in constant touch with the Health Department.”
