Ghanaian Startup launches Covid-19 symptom tracker app

MEDICAL diagnostics distributor, Redbird has launched a Covid-19 Daily Check-in App and Symptom Tracker in its bid to counter the spread of coronavirus across the African continent.

Accessible as a browser-based app via covid19.redbird.co, Redbird’s Covid-19 check-in app is a way for every person to self-report symptoms without needing to visit a healthcare facility and thereby aiding in social distancing.

The solution will enable public health officials from Ghana to see a real-time map of where patients are self-reporting symptoms in order to follow-up directly with high-risk patients. This provides them with a digital alternative to the overwhelmed hotlines for triage and follow-up.

Through this platform, Redbird provides hospitals with digital record keeping and the potential to keep unnecessary patients from coming to the hospital and putting themselves and others at risk.

‘These remain trying times all over the world, but we’re also seeing an incredible validation of everything we’ve built at Redbird and we’re not letting that slip. With limited testing resources, understanding where the risk is and how to reach those at risk is of great importance. We have been looking at how to support public health with the data and the Covid-19 Daily Check-in App and Symptom Tracker is one such way,’ says Patrick Beattie, CEO and Co-Founder of Redbird.

At present, the app works in the U.S. and Ghana but Redbird plans to roll out the solution to Nigeria, Kenya, and South Africa.
