[PRETORIA, SOUTH AFRICA, 2020/03/25]-Qode Health Solutions has configured their existing Lynx, Insight and Knowledge Center solutions used by various USAID and CDC-funded partners from several countries, including South Africa, in the fight against HIV/AIDS to address the COVID-19 pandemic. The solutions are ready for deployment and can assist in dispensing Facility Readiness Assessments to cope with the screening and treatment of patients that test positive for COVID-19, provide COVID-19 screening applications for community and facility-based testing, assist with patient monitoring applications based on published CDC guidelines, and deploy comprehensive EMR solution for real time reporting to authorities on the health of quarantined patients.

South Africa’s rapid increase in infection rates over the last week has resulted in the President, Mr Cyril Ramaphosa, placing the country under a 21-day national lockdown from 00:00 on 26 March 2020. Qode Health Solutions (Qode), a South African MedTech company and Microsoft Gold Partner, has responded to the request from the President on Sunday 15 March 2020 for South African technology companies to assist Government in the response to COVID-19.

Qode has supported over 1.5 million HIV/AIDS tests in Southern Africa with live data collection and reporting and plans to offer the same support to Southern African governments during the COVID-19 pandemic. Qode has worked closely with public health experts at Right to Care and the SDG Hub at the University of Pretoria in the configuration of their technology solutions for COVID-19.

“We hope to work closely with the South African Presidency, the National Department of Health and the National Institute for Communicable Diseases (NICD) in the rollout of the solution to assist in flattening the COVID-19 curve in South Africa”, said Werner Swanepoel, Group Chief Executive Officer.
