To fight Covid-19, the Bhubaneswar Municipal Corporation (BMC) has developed a mobile phone application, ‘Sachetak’, exclusively for the co-morbid and elderly citizens of the city. The app has been developed by the Bhubaneswar Smart City Limited.
After downloading the app, the users can register using their mobile phone numbers and OTPs. Once registered, users would be required to provide basic information about them such as age, occupation, Ward of residence, co-morbidity or existing diseases, any type or surgery, etc., caregiver and doctor details.
After analysing the inputs, the BMC could also plan advance healthcare camps in a particular area of the city in which more vulnerable groups would be found.
From the dashboard, citizens can explore resources shared on Covid protection, consult a doctor for specific diseases, view responses from doctors, view updates on quarantine, positive cases in their wards as well as other wards and Bhubaneswar and Odisha.
Using the ‘Consult Doctor’ option, citizens can seek advice from registered doctors for specific diseases. Besides, using the messaging option, citizens can view responses from doctors on their queries and reply to them as well. Citizens can use the app to view videos, guidelines, safety and prevention tips as well as information on delivery and other services from time to time.
