CVm-Health is a free, easy to use application developed to be used remotely as a coronavirus health monitor by the general public. It provides a secure way for people self-isolating at home, sick or well, to monitor their vital signs, coronavirus symptoms and general health.
A unique aspect of CVm-Health is the ability to record someone else’s symptoms and vital signs, not just the person who is the registered user of the app, meaning everyone can help a family member, loved one or a neighbour, monitor their health during the pandemic.
People can volunteer, from their laptop on their sofa or at a safe distance in their neighbourhood to help look after those most vulnerable and in most need of care in society. In the near future, it will be possible for the health information from these vulnerable individuals to be made easy to review and assess, if they need assistance from healthcare professionals.
And in the long run, the data on the app can help clinicians and medical scientists better understand the disease and mitigate its effects.
