An app is used to fol­low up the symp­toms in COVID-19 patients who are in home isolation

Soite has begun using a mobile appli­ca­tion to fol­low up per­sons who have COVID-19 and are in home iso­la­tion. The mobile appli­ca­tion Bud­dy­Care is used to gath­er infor­ma­tion on how the symp­toms in per­sons with COVID-19 devel­op dur­ing the home iso­la­tion. If the thresh­old val­ues that pro­fes­sion­als in health care have deter­mined are exceed­ed when it comes to symp­toms, the per­son­nel at Soite’s infec­tion pre­ven­tion unit are noti­fied about this on their own pro­gram, and the patient gets help for his/her symp­toms at the right moment.

In addi­tion to symp­tom check-ups, a per­son with COVID-19 can use Bud­dy­Care to com­mu­ni­cate with health care per­son­nel, and the health care per­son­nel can con­tact the patient via the app. The app gives per­sons with COVID-19 peace of mind as they know their health sta­tus is fol­lowed up elec­tron­i­cal­ly and as they know they can use the app to eas­i­ly con­tact a pro­fes­sion­al in Soite if need­ed. The app can also be used to dis­trib­ute impor­tant and cur­rent infor­ma­tion for the users of the app. More infor­ma­tion in the arti­cle.

Soite has active­ly made use of elec­tron­ic chan­nells dur­ing the coro­n­avirus pan­dem­ic: it is pos­si­ble to book an appoint­ment for a coro­n­avirus test via the Omaolo appli­ca­tion, and it is pos­si­ble to receive the results from a coro­n­avirus test to one’s mobile phone. With the Bud­dy­Care app, per­sons who have COVID-19 will also be able to use elec­tron­ic ser­vices. The elec­tron­ic ser­vices com­ple­ment oth­er ways of doing errands and care prac­tis­es in Soite.
