In response to the Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) outbreak, leading software solutions company Multisys Technologies Corporation has launched a community-driven social distancing system via an emergency response website called StaySafe.ph.

With StaySafe.ph, site visitors can contribute to the fight against COVID-19 by reporting the health conditions of their respective family members without disclosing sensitive information. This will help the private sector and local government units (LGUs) attend to immediate assistance needed by employees or locals under their jurisdiction—making it easier to track COVID-19 on a national basis.

To enable more citizens with access to the platform, MultiSys joined hands with the B2B arm of the PLDT-Smart Group, PLDT Enterprise, to whitelist the said website.

Jovy Hernandez, ePLDT President & CEO and SVP & Head of PLDT and Smart Enterprise Business Groups shared, “We at PLDT and Smart have always believed technology to be an equalizer of opportunities and we recognize how huge a role we play in enabling our customers during this crisis. By allowing subscribers with free access to StaySafe.ph, we hope to empower them to do their part in “flattening the curve.”

Upon registration in the website, users will be requested to record their medical statuses in the household based on the COVID-19 symptoms listed, after which they will be classified as individuals in good health, or experiencing mild symptoms or severe conditions.

The reports submitted will then be added to the “heatmapping” dashboard of the admin, which will visually show the areas with increasing or improving rate of COVID-19 cases. The admin, whether from the public or private sector, will be notified of the ‘severe conditions’ reported, and will be able to reach out to those who have submitted them.

MultiSys Chief Executive Officer and founder David Almirol, Jr. said that LGUs and employers around the country could have access to the backend system of the website for free by reaching out to help@staysafe.ph.

“StaySafe.ph is intended to help mitigate risks especially in vulnerable areas, as authorities will have real-time alerts and easy monitoring of critical situations in their respective communities. During this difficult time, in the time of such pandemic, quick response is crucial, which is why we helped develop this app,” Almirol said.
