COVID-19 surveillance robot

HSE-HPSC developed a COVID-19 surveillance robot to align COVID-19 data across HSE information systems and navigate the national infectious disease reporting system (CIDR) to process laboratory records, notifications and contact-tracing data. The COVID-19 surveillance robot, is a key tool in the HSE’s pandemic response. The robot delivers timely data for epidemiological reporting by the Health Protection Surveillance Centre (HPSC) to the National Public Health Emergency Team (NPHET), facilitating evidence-based decision-making for the pandemic response.
