The COVID-19 Operations Center Monitoring Dashboard & Data Platform

In an effort to assist Local Government Units in their ongoing pandemic response against COVID-19, the DOST-ASTI helped develop the COVID-19 Operations Center Monitoring Dashboard and Data Platform.

In cooperation with SyCip Gorres Velayo & Company (SGV & Co.), this platform aims to help LGUs in managing, tracking, and monitoring COVID-19 cases. The system consolidates COVID-19 data that LGUs can view through an easy-access dashboard. It includes visualization features like heat maps and charts for monitoring, designed for municipality up to the barangay level. It also includes modules for encoding patient information and assigning patient records for contact tracing. COARE has assisted the COVID-19 Operations Center Monitoring System in storing and analyzing their data through the provision of virtual servers.

The OpCen Monitoring Platform is a contact tracing system and data platform developed to illustrate the interaction between confirmed patients, PUIs and PUMs up to the barangay level. It also provides prescriptive information on areas with frequent cases via location history. The site serves as a central repository of information for consolidation from different sources.

The DOST-ASTI's COARE (an I.T. facility that provides supercomputing, cloud, and storage solutions to the science community) has assisted the COVID-19 Operations Center Monitoring System in storing and analyzing their data through the provision of virtual servers or cloud solution.
