Pandemic Management System
Our pandemic management system supports healthcare organizations and governments in tackling the catastrophic effects of the pandemics through carrier tracking and non-pharmaceutical interventions.
How to flatten the COVID-19 curve? Why?
Flattening the COVID-19 curve is the top priority for countries all over the world today. Unless the curve is flattened, citizen's lives, as well as the future of the economy, are at stake.
Since a vaccine or treatment method for COVID-19 is yet to be found, the only effective way to flatten the COVID-19 curve is through enforcing strict quarantine, social distancing and anticipating the chances of a citizen getting infected. But each of these methods, comes at the cost of global economy's slow down.
To effectively flatten the COVID-19 curve, each individual should take extra precautions to counter the spread of the infection. For that, Governments need to examine the potential COVID-19 exposure of each resident and issue health cards based on their health status.
Rebuild The Chain is a pandemic management system that can identify the community spread of the pandemic at an early stage and mark hot-spots that are prone to infection. It is also enabled with a health card based access system that can help authorities differentiate between high risk and low risk patients.
Getting the Economy Up & Running
A complete lockdown causes irreversible damage to an economy. This is why governments could only impose partial economic lockdown for longer periods. A relaxation in the lockdown can only be made possible if governments can issue digital health cards to citizens to represent their risk levels. By using health card based access systems, citizens can enter public/private infrastructure by scanning their health cards. Entry will only be given to the citizens that have a low risk status.
Digital health cards
This system assigns digital health cards to each user based on their recent activities, such as the places they have visited and the people they have interacted with, etc. This health card also indicates the threat level of each user in five different color codes.

As the number of reported COVID-19 cases all over the world continues to rise, the need for a reliable pandemic management system has become a basic necessity for each government. At Accubits, we fully understand that this crisis could not be easily overcome without such a system and we fully support this initiative by providing a suitable solution - Rebuild The Chain.
Self-screening and Analysis
Health Card Based Access System
Hard to enforce. Most of the governments have announced city-wide lockdown. However, there is no effective way to enforce this
Manual process. Inaccurate data, missing data points etc. Not scalable
Not possible (currently, hot zone details are notified via TV/Radio etc)
Not possible in the current situation
Complete lockdown, economy is suffering massively
Easy to enforce and track
Automated & continuous route map creation for all people
Real-time alerting system with a 500m geofence
Built-in self screening tool which notifies local health authorities automatically in case the probability is high
Partial lockdown with health card based access
Rebuild The Chain - Pandemic Management System helps in reviving the struggling economy by preventing community spread at early stages through automated user assessments, remote citizen monitoring, educating users, providing treatment instructions and overall creates a safer environment for healthcare workers with dedicated customer support.
The citizen portal empowers each resident to enroll themselves as well as other people as vulnerable residents, potential carriers, currently infected and even access their present health status information's. Every citizen has a part to play in fighting this COVID-19 pandemic spread. Our citizen portal app can alert citizen’s whenever they are near a high risk area or infected patient. The app also enables self diagnosis, daily check-ins and health card access for each of its users.
The government portal helps to track every citizens' geo-location without compromising their data privacy. The health authorities would be able to analyze exposure to the pandemic hot-spots and assign digital health cards based on the risk of infection through the government portal. It even supports the sharing of useful information to the health authorities regarding potential new cases, the direction of the pandemic spread and the status of people under isolation in a vicinity.
How it works
Rebuild The Chain comprises of two primary components- the citizen portal and the government portal. These two components work in tandem to monitor the spread of the COVID-19 virus by effectively identifying the pandemic hot-spots or high risk areas. There are five major steps involved in the way the system works.
The platform is built with cutting-edge security measures to ensure the user data and privacy are highly protected.
Frequently Asked Questions - FAQ ?
No. RebuildTheChain is hosted on on-premise servers. Every data is encrypted and stored in on-premise databases that are not accessible to anyone outside the organization.
A user’s location is tracked using a combination of three methods for high precision. GPS location, Bluetooth vicinity data, and cellular network triangulation are used to pinpoint the location and movements of a user.
No. verifying the digital health card can be done via the default QR code scanner available in almost every smartphones today. The verification details will be displayed in the web browser.
However, we have also developed a scanner application for those don’t have a default QR scanner in their smartphone.
All data collected in the platform is encrypted. As an additional layer of security, the platform is deployed on-premises of the owner and protected by its internal firewall. The privacy and integrity of user data is protected not only from external attackers but also from unauthorized access by saving the health records in a blockchain network. The platform as a whole is GDPR compliant.
The platform charges only a minimal implementation cost. Additional cost is applicable if you need any extra customizations to the platform.
The user side mobile application is available in iOS and Android platforms. The Admin side dashboard is a web application that can be accessed from any web browser.
For non-smartphone users, the platform users cellular network triangulation to pinpoint the location of the user.
RTC is using sensor fusion technologies(Bluetooth, WiFi, GPS, and cell phone triangulation) to accurately perform contact tracing and for the human-to-human exposure analysis. Since RTC is also using cell phone triangulation, it can also perform contact tracing for people without smartphones as well, this would facilitate extremely accurate tracing for both developed and developing markets. Also, RTC is compliant with PEPP-PT(Pan-European Privacy-Preserving Proximity Tracing), any country who is using the platform can choose to turn off the functioning of other sensors(available from the dashboard) to be compliant with the regulations.
RTC considers two different types of exposures - human to human transmission and human to object/surface to human exposure.
Human to human transmission: Human to human exposure can be calculated with Bluetooth technology. The system is capable of automatically figuring out who else would have been exposed to the virus from a COVID19 affected person. If the country under consideration does not need to comply with PEPP-PT, then the exposure analysis results could be more accurate and holistic.
Human to Surface to Human transmission: This is one of the most essential parts of exposure analysis. Most of the software available in the market ignores this component. Coronavirus can remain in the following surfaces for the given amount of time respectively,
- Airborne droplets - 3 Hours
- Copper - 4 Hours
- Porous surfaces (Cardboard/Paper/Fabrics) - Up to 24 Hrs
Hard and shiny surfaces (Glass/Countertops/Plastic/Stainless steel) - Upto 72 hours
If an infected person walks into a restaurant and touches any surfaces like handrails, door handles, benches, etc. or any objects like a menu card, POC device, etc., the virus could be transmitted to these surfaces and could remain on that surface based on the above-mentioned points. In the meantime, another person could come to the same restaurant and interact with any of these surfaces to be exposed to the virus. RTC automatically calculates these exposures and dynamically creates dynamic micro hotspots, users are alerted to maintain distance from such hotspots, also these infrastructure owners could be notified to disinfect these infrastructures. This is an extremely important component of exposure analysis which is ignored by most of the software systems out there. Also, this cannot be enabled for an installation that requires to be compliant with the PEPP-PT regulations as this requires GPS data.
The spread analysis is done by predicting primary contacts, secondary contact, and hotspots and based on their movements. With this information and the movement of these people, we can accurately predict disease spread and hotspots(micro hotspots and macro hotspots). This also requires GPS data and would not be available for PEPP-PT compliant installation.
PANDEMIC-PROOF PASSPORT feature of RebuildTheChain enables countries to be confident that none of the people coming into the country is affected by COVID19. Here, citizens from different countries will have a health card that indicates the health risk level assigned to them via their local health departments. People with ‘NO RISK’ (Green Health card) health cards could only be allowed to travel overseas. Moreover, at places like banks, shopping malls, workplaces, etc, the entry can be allowed only to people with ‘no risk’ health cards.
The user can show the Health Card to authorities who want to check the health status. Upon scanning the QR code, health status and an identification photo of the user will be made accessible.
RTC uses the Apache Hive, a data warehousing system based on Apache Hadoop capable of facilitating easier data summarization, management of ad-hoc queries, and analysis of large volume of stored datasets involved in different file systems and databases connected with Hadoop, involving the MapR XD and MapR Database with the MapR Data Platform. The Hive provides an easier way to use structure to huge volumes of unorganized data and afterward carry out batch SQL-like queries on the available data. Also, Hive could be effectively integrated with traditional data center technologies by making use of the much familiar JDBC/ODBC interface. RTC can right now process upto 1.6 PB data/day. RTC can horizontally scale to accommodate 2.6 billion people continuously commuting everyday.
No. The platform consists of 2 components. One is the user side mobile application and the other is admin side dashboard.
Contact tracing apps are currently all governments’ best tool to fight the COVID-19. But is that enough?. The COVID-19 pandemic has come as a huge wake-up call to governments all around the world. This outbreak has made us realize that we are nowhere near prepared to handle a contagion of this scale.
With nearly 500 million confirmed cases, the Spanish flu is widely known as one of the deadliest pandemics in history. It was a highly infectious disease that started in 1918 and caused more than 17 million deaths. COVID-19 is another such infectious disease. However, we are much more equipped to deal with a pandemic now than we were in 1918.
According to the World Bank, the officially recorded remittances to developing countries during 2016 is $429 billion. This may come as a surprise to those who are unfamiliar with the multi-billion dollar market of remittance industry. Technically speaking, remittance is a peer-to-peer transaction among migrant workers to their families in the home country.
Pandemics are large scale and sudden outbreaks of infectious diseases that can cause heavy mortality over large geographical areas. This can cause serious economic, political & social disruptions. We’ve developed a pandemic management solution with a hope to slow down the spread of COVID 19.
Blockchain technology would disrupt industries in an unprecedented manner. The more accessible, secure and reliable the available information is, the faster and more effective health professionals and health organizations can act.
