This technology is an online realtime IT platform that can be used to provide disease surveillance to enable early detection and activate disease control measures. It can also be used to monitor realtime disease incidence and prevalence within an area.

Symptom complexes for suspected cases of diseases are used to trigger realtime red flags which will be broadcast to disease comtrol departments to initiate monitoring, tracking, quarantine or emergency  procedures when necessary.

The IT platform, is a combination of customized easy-to-use portable hardware terminals, specialized software app, USSD technology and network services built to deliver diseases symptom complex alerts to a backend interface.

The terminal is delivered to community healthcare facilities to provide an interface to capture vital signs. It is is a low power device equipped with rechargeable battery which can sustain power for up to 18 hours, dual sim network service, and an option to recharge with solar energy. 

Disease Monitoring and control departments will receive realtime alerts when the symptom complexes of suspected cases of a disease is diagnosed e.g Ebola or zika virus.
