In these extraordinary times, speed is of the essence. To further accelerate our LGUs’ CoVID-19 response, CoVcheck developed the Quarantine Buddy (QB).
Today, LGUs grapple with how they break the chains of transmission through testing, tracing, and treating thereby quarantining CoVID-19 patients to isolation centers until they are no longer infectious.

The researchers have found that the use of QB as a digital tool across isolation centers can reduce the paper register and reporting concerns in our local health systems. QB is a patient care management platform that is looking to improve:
- Storage and Retrieval of Patient Records – Allowing health worker buddies to electronically register patients and view patient information easily.
- Patient Management and Monitoring – Allowing health workers to account for the care they provide to their patients, and better track their patients (in-facility and home quarantine after patients are discharged).
- Monitoring and Performance Management through Summary Reports – Providing LGUs with a reliable tool for collecting data at the source, resulting in a more accurate denominator reflected in the data dashboard and enabling them to make data-driven and evidence-based decisions.
