COVID-19 Home Monitoring System

The COVID-19 Symptom Monitoring System (CoSMoS) is an automated platform that assesses patients with suspected COVID-19 infection remotely to ensure accessible and timely monitoring.

How CoSMoS Works?

CoSMoS consists of a Telegram Chatbot for patients to report their symptoms daily and a Medical Dashboard to give convenience for doctors to easily carry out COVID-19 symptom monitoring remotely. Watch the video to learn more!

Features of Our Covid-19 Symptom Monitoring System

Useful and Easy to Use

Patients have reported that CoSMoS is very useful for them to monitor their health and is really easy to use.

“The system also enabled the doctor to monitor me closely on a daily basis. I used to type and then there will be instant feedback. So in that sense that you feel reassured that I’m not alone. Unlike the card method, the doctors will only see it after 14 days.” (Male, 60 y/o)

“Yeah so it’s very simple and very easy to use and, the reminders are all there.”  (Male, 49 y/o)
