This pandemic has affected everyone, forced millions into quarantine, businesses to close, and the economy down on a negative spiral. We are approaching a critical point where we need to get people and personal back into society and work to perform essential tasks. This inspired us to develop a common process that supports a sustainable transition back to an open society.
What it does
Our solution builds an ecosystem to digitally issue and verify coronavirus "immunity certificates" by developing an interoperable information system for Europe to gradually open up again as called for by Ursula von der Leyen.
How we built it
With limited time developing brand new platforms is not an option, instead, we have quickly adopted and expanded upon existing platforms that are compliant with EU laws and regulations. Using this strategy we can confidently assure that this will be available within 8 weeks. In addition, we have implemented interoperable standards such as Fhir ensuring a scalable solution that can seamlessly integrate into already existing systems and workflows.
Challenges we ran into
The main challenge we face is an un-untied front and the slow pace on a political level to make decisions regarding a sustainable Corona exit strategy.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We are proud of the fact that we have been able to put together a very competent team, and a scaleable platform in such a short period of time and with limited resources. We're also proud of winning the Swedish Hack The Crisis and the massive support and attention we've gathered from several influential stakeholders, and the validation that it gave our solution.
What we learned
We have learned that in order to be successful in our efforts to create a Coronafree world, we have to stand united not just on a national level but as a united front that includes all member-states. We see the lack of a common solution to detect and verify European citizens who have been infected with Covid-19 and have now developed antibodies.
What's next for Coronafree – A European certificate of immunity
Our hope and ambitions are to get the support needed to realize our vision of a Coronafree world as soon as possible, for the sake of every citizen and the future of our economy.
