Nowadays, we are facing a difficult situation with the COVID-19 pandemic that has been challenging society as whole. In the hospital context, one of the major difficulties is the fact that family visits are suspended which generates insecurity and suffering to the patient.
CoVIVE Social is a project that aims to develop a prototype of a technological solution to improve the communication between the Hospital and the COVID-19 patients’ family. The tool will follow and support all the patient journey during all the hospitalization. This platform will offer update notices about the current patient state to family. Besides that, the social rights will be supported by this tool.
This project will be tested in Fortaleza General Hospital that is the major hospital in Ceará. It is funded by FioCruz (Brazil) and Inova Funcap. The research will be undertaken by a multidisciplinary team that includes physicians, nurses, social assistants, developers and designers.
