The answer to this pandemic will mostly come from technological changes. I hope we are able to build new medicines, new vaccines, new apps that keep us safe.

Why Health & Wellness?

We are facing, first and foremost, a health crisis that will have a lasting impact and necessitate a vibrant health tech sector. Every death is a tragedy and every serious illness is a cause for serious concern, no matter the cause. However, this virus also has the potential to overwhelm our healthcare systems and reduce access to regular treatments, jeopardising public health on an even larger scale.

Through this crisis and beyond, both people and organisations will be thinking about the health of themselves and others in new ways and they will need new technology to support this. How can this result in a lasting long term positive impact?

Track is brought to you by Hack the Crisis - India, Ficci Flo Pune in association with Ministry of Electronics & Information Technology, Government of India (MEITY), MEITY Startup Hub (MSH), Make in India, MyGov, technology+startup hubs community, executed by Payal Rajpal(Founder HackA​Cause) & Gayatri Chhabria(Trustee MMF)the same forces which executed Hack the Crisis – India, are now leading the popular tracks of (Crisis + Health Wellness) at Global Hack.

While no one can control a pandemic, we can have collective impact as a nation from finding solutions to COVID19 and revival measures post-crisis.

Social distancing app

Main problem regarding to public health is social distancing. Its important to make sure that people don´t get closer than 2 meters. On the other hand being indoor 24/7 is not good for health also. Possible solution an app that measures movement and distance between people.

Managing post-crisis medical appointment waiting lists

Many medical appointments and surgeries (that do not require immediate attention) are being postponed due to Covid-19 and new appointments are made only when there is utmost necessity. Some appointments are conducted over telephone or video-calls, but many of them are being postponed to an unknown future.\ How to reorganize the appointments so that people can get the help they need on time and have timely information about what to expect; How could we: reorganise the appointments; in what order should the appointments take place; assess the criticality of the appointments; cancel/postpone the appointments where there is no longer a necessity to see the doctor; make best use of doctors’ time; keep people in the loop of what is happening?

Understanding medication need to enable effective supply chain

There are people who are vulnerable to pandemics - the immuno compromised folks with heart disease, diabetes, etc. How can we identify the medical needs by geography to effectively manage our supply chains during a crisis?A form like registry website that allows people to register themselves during a crisis - data columns - name or nick name, email address, postal code, medical condition, top 3 drugs/ medications needed to sustain good health

How to help Citizens during the outbreak?

People feel helpless and uncertain in the COVID outbreak. There is a huge need for up to date information about the outbreak. How can the citizen get latest reliable information about the situation globally, in Europe, in my country and in my neighbourhood? What is my risk to get ill right now in my neighbourhood? How can I reduce the risk to get an infection?

How to assist when people get sick and become patients?

COVID-19 is a new virus and there is only limited understanding of the disease, symptoms and cure. The virus seems to be transmitted mainly via small respiratory droplets through sneezing, coughing, or when people interact with each other for some time in close proximity (usually less than one metre). Symptoms of COVID-19 vary in severity from having no symptoms at all (being asymptomatic) to having fever, cough, sore throat, general weakness and fatigue and muscular pain and in the most severe cases, severe pneumonia, acute respiratory distress syndrome, sepsis and septic shock, all potentially leading to death. Reports show that clinical deterioration can occur rapidly, often during the second week of disease. The infectious period may begin one to two days before symptoms appear, but people are likely most infectious during the symptomatic period, even if symptoms are mild and very non-specific. The infectious period is now estimated to last for 7-12 days in moderate cases and up to two weeks on average in severe cases. If the citizen is not feeling well, then how he can verify the symptoms and get medical consultation? How can be keep track of the infected people?

Music in the “stay at home” era of COVID-19

Social distancing and new “work from home” lifestyles have confined billions around the world to their homes. Many have gained time from commutes, work commitments and recreational activities, but are challenged with spending that time practicing healthy habits, maintaining active routines and keeping from going stir crazy. We challenge you explore how music can be used to promote health and wellness in the “stay at home” era of COVID-19?

Public health measures

Public health measures adopted for reducing the impact of COVID-19 include severe limitations of people movement and social contacts. It is difficult to adhere to these recommendations for very long times. The rules and prevention measures change when the epidemic proceeds. How can the citizen get the latest instructions (valid for the location) and how to support him to act accordingly?

Don't Touch MEN [Mouth Eyes Nose]

During social isolation over the last weeks, I have observed many people in videoconferences constantly touching their faces, mostly subconsciously. This is a potential infection path for the virus, getting on a mucous membrane in your eyes, mouth or nose and enters your body. Our app nudges you away from this risky behavior by alerting you when your hand is close to your face.

TrackCovid

We are solving the problem of detecting and queuing people who experience possible symptoms of COVID-19, helping overloaded medical systems and the government prioritize medical help. Moreover, we are reducing the anxiety of people who cannot get access to immediate medical advice. This system also provides automatic research and monitoring, helping to encompass immense target groups and represent the results in the most convenient way for analysis.

There, the rationale is simple: we are used to rating hotels, food, travel and so forth; why not do the same for the environment? Envirate allows anyone with access to a smartphone to give ratings on the environment around them simply using our three main senses: LOOK, HEAR and BREATHE. Now, we are modifying our Envirate platform for tracking Corona symptoms.

Go Test Yourself

Currently only severe cases and medical workers are being tested. In the (near) future we will likely want to see exactly how many people were infected to see if we are getting close to herd immunity levels. By allowing people to test themselves in the comfort of their own home, we can get an overview of the entire population without stressing the healthcare system.
