Government of India highlights the need to identify, utilise and implement digital opportunities to reach more people and have more effect. In reference to digital transformation and development policy, there was a request by Jammu and Kashmir to support development of COVID-19 Dashboard and its integration with MoHFW’s Arogya Setu Dashboard and Swasthya Nidhi Surveillance dashboard.
Norway India Partnership Initiative (NIPI) in collaboration with Health Information Service Provider (HISP) India has created a COVID-19 dashboard for Jammu and Kashmir based on state’s specific requirements in compliance with MoHFW reporting requirements.
Following are the main features of COVID-19 Dashboard:
- The COVID-19 dashboard provides real time information about confirmed, active, recovered cases, deaths, positivity rate, recovery rate fatality rate, test per million at a single glance, geotagging and clustering of cases, health system preparedness, ICU availability and Isolation beds available to facilitate and generate appropriate and timely response, etc.
- Swasthya Nidhi App provides real-time information on the various surveillance activities conducted by the state
- Arogya Setu app provides real-time information about uses, its correlation with NCDC users etc
