Climedo for the Public Health Sector
Strengthening pandemic resilience together
The Climedo Portal enables you to digitalize your infection control processes and automate the communication between citizens and health office staff.
At the beginning of the pandemic in 2020, Climedo developed its Symptoms eDiary for the public health service in close cooperation with the Federal Ministry of Health (BMG), the Federal Office for Information Security (BSI) and the Federal Commissioner for Data Protection and Freedom of Information (BfDI) (Project profile). The possibility for contacts and index cases to transmit their symptomatology digitally and automatically to their public health authority was the beginning for today's Climedo Portal.
To strengthen the pandemic resilience of the public health service, Climedo offers a seamless and digital process chain in infection control. This is achieved through interfaces to several Infection Protection Act (IPA) software application. The focus is on ensuring digital communication between citizens and public health authorities without media discontinuity and with GDPR compliance data protection regulations. The connection of the Climedo Portal to the software applications allows for interoperable support by means of automated and digital workflows in the processing of notifiable infectious diseases. Subsequently, corresponding modules can be activated in the Climedo Portal and data can be queried from the citizen via smartphone, tablet or PC and certifications can also be sent to these devices.
