Connecta 19: A UPC initiative for the Covid 19 pandemic emergency

The /rdlab has been deeply involved in the Connecta 19 initiative, a collaboration between the UPC Technical School of Telecommunications Engineering, their students, the research and development lab (/rdlab) and the Catalan Government health agency.

With the Covid19 pandemic emergency and the patient isolation needs, most medical services collapsed. Hence, the communication process between hospital and families was difficult adding an extra pain to this terrible disease.

Connecta 19 provides an effective platform (mobile app and web services) to connect hospitalize’s relatives and M.D staff. Offering an accurate and up to date information about the patient health status.

This project has been academically released as PAE (Projectes Avançats d’Enginyeria) and can be found here.
