How Does It Work?
COVID Resistance uses Bluetooth to create an anonymous randomized token ID. The app is GDPR and HIPAA compliant. No personal data is stored or shared. When a user download the app and registers, they use an anonymous profile to create and receive a digital token. Users also have the option to add their region, age group and preexisting conditions. Medical personnel who use the app can use the information provided by users to offer tailored guidance. As the users moves through their daily life, if the app picks up a signal from another user, their token are exchanged and registered. The anonymous exchange creates a record of interactions between the app users. In case a user becomes symptomatic, they can update their status to “Suspected.” If a user is tested and confirmed to be “Infected,” the user can also update their anonymous profile. If a user’s profile is updated to “Suspected” or “Infected,” the app will notify any other users who exchanged tokens with them to alert them of their risk of exposure. Medical personnel with access to the app will receive real-time notification of “Suspected” or “Infected” patients. Medical staff can also register a user’s status based on testing, and provide timely treatment guidance to “Suspected” or “Infected” users through push notifications, so they can receive well-timed care.
