# Inspiration: THE PROBLEM INDIA FACES: India is in a Complete #Lockdown21Days, maybe longer. If there were to be a surge of cases of COVID-19, the limited health care resources would be overwhelmed. There is just no way that efficient screening, evaluation, and testing can be done with conventional means available at our disposal. There would be rapid Community spread and hospitals will be overwhelmed risking the lives of health-care workers.
What it does:
Our primary objective is to help public health authorities at the national, regional and community levels by identifying who is most vulnerable. The solution could help the government plan "Containment Strategies" and prepare the necessary resources to tackle any emergent situation on a war footing. The Solution Facilitates: 1) Control the likelihood of Community Spread of COVID-19 by Community Surveillance, Tracing Contacts, Screening to facilitate Testing of suspects and Tracking of the quarantined population (ALL IN ONE -presently there isn't a Single comprehensive App that captures all those features into Single System Solution. Moreover, unlike presently existing Apps, COSET would be uniquely integrated into a centralized data storage on Cloud for future referencing of health parameters). 2) Reduce the strain on healthcare facilities to deliver the right care for patients during the COVID-19 pandemic. Screening COVID-19 cases in catchment area remotely and tracking patients with mild symptoms remotely as well while at the same time Protecting health-care workers from getting exposed to infection. 3) By working with external call centers, it will allow users to do initial screening remotely without needing them to travel to primary healthcare, thereby maintaining Social Distancing, avoid Overcrowding at city hospitals and at the same time protect healthcare workers from getting infected. It'll also help reduce the number of unnecessary consultations while focusing on those patients for whom care is a necessity and also. 4) The dashboard gives you the means to gain an overview of the current situation in your area. 5) IMPORTANTLY promotes the sharing of expertise and resources between the advanced COVID-19 diagnostic center in a major tertiary city hospital and primary health centers in villages and district hospitals in tier-II cities of India at remote locations. This will further help REDUCE COMMUNITY SPREAD of COVID-19.
All.this is accomplished by simultaneously transmitting patient's symptoms, diagnosis report and images from a medical system, camera video images and audio over a high bandwidth network link between two locations.
