Highly acclaimed blockchain consulting firm, BlockchainArmy has announced the news that it has been selected by the World Health Organization (WHO) to aid governments in their operations to combat the global adversities created by the deadly Coronavirus pandemic. The leading firm has designed a blockchain-powered digital ID solution named BCA ID to help the relief operations of the government entities. It has been designed after strict considerations towards the management issue prevailing in the present dire situations.
According to the official reports, BCA ID will help in tracking the spread of COVID-19 and will work as an interface in providing the crucial information required by the consumers in real-time. In order to make it easily approachable, the newly launched solution will operate on mobile phones as an application available with a quick download. The revolutionary platform stores complete details about users. After downloading, they need to sign up through their national IDs and verify the credentials thereon. Step-by-step guidance processes are available for the users to make their experience a smooth one.
A detailed questionnaire is to be filled by the users to figure out if they have crossed paths with any coronavirus affected person. The application asks the users to fill information about their health condition, emergency contact information as well as uploading of health records for reference. The BCA ID app offers convenient access to an array of important services and also describes the guidelines prescribed by the World Health Organization for the prevention of COVID-19. One can get accurate information about the location of the nearby health centers as well as the schedules of the tests therein. The users can book appointments for testing coronavirus while enjoying the latest updates on the precautionary measures.
The application is studded with the GPS tracker to count the movement of the users along with an indication if and when they come in contact with a person affected with coronavirus. The details about the government updates and notifications will be available at the user’s disposal. Accurate information about the test reports and previous test results will be stored and available for scrutiny in real-time.
Apart from this, BlockchainArmy is using the excellence of Artificial Intelligence along with prediction models to identify the patient on coming across with one, design a priority list considering the patient’s health, and also predict the patient’s growth in future. This will aid the organizations in preparing themselves with the upcoming challenges in a better way. The model can be connected with telematics, hospital EMR systems, test centers, and government entities.
Being based on blockchain technology, the data entered in the application is secured through encryption which in turn offers enhanced security, transparency, and privacy for the customers. The information stored on a blockchain network is free from manipulations, alterations, and deletions, hence it works as a single reliable source. All the health records are stored on the blockchain which allows the healthcare organizations to access them quickly during the time of requirement. The emergency services can be called upon with a few clicks on the application making the entire process less cumbersome.
One of the primary issues prevalent during such pandemics is the spread of fake news from various channels. However, the BlockchainArmy app restrains such incidents by providing true and correct information, updates, and notifications given by official organizations.
Working under the guidance of Erol User, BlockchainArmy has been a constant supporter of blockchain technology in revolutionizing the multiple industrial domains irrespective of size or working methodologies. The team is dedicated to helping government organizations in mitigating the expanse of coronavirus. It is likely that as long as the virus continues to exist in even a single person traveling unaware, the world cannot get away with the threat as it shall pass on from one person to another, one country to another rapidly. This triggered the situation once again in China, Singapore, and other Asian countries who earlier were able to control the situation. These situations can lead to three possible outcomes- one that’s very unlikely, one that’s very dangerous, and one that’s very lengthy.
The problem can be eliminated from the roots only when all the countries are able to suppress the deadly virus simultaneously through their operations. This was the case with the 2003 SARS outbreak. The current proliferation of the virus across the globe and the unlikely defeat of the nations in dealing with the virus indicates that the chances of global synchronous control are highly unlikely. It will be a challenge for one and all to fight the unending war with COVID-19.
