About Contact Virus Tracker (CVT)
Our mission is to help control the COVID-19 outbreak by improving contact tracing, case finding and testing.
Contact Virus Tracker (CVT) was founded in 2020 by Dr Anatole Menon-Johansson in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Contact Virus Tracker is a sister company of SXT, a Community Interest Company providing an award-winning digital service to reduce the spread of transmittable infections by notifying and testing up to ten times more people compared to doing so manually.
After consulting with experts on emergency preparedness for pandemics, we built upon the already tried and tested Contact Tracing Service and Appointment Scheduling Tool as a response to the urgent need to improve contact tracing, case finding and testing during the COVID-19 outbreak.
Our services are designed to help healthcare providers and patients alike.
This service enables clinicians or patients diagnosed with COVID-19 to notify people they have been in contact with. It provides their contacts with information about what to do next and allows them to find their nearest clinic and get tested, if necessary.
Powered by a customizable decision tree, the patients can be triaged either: to seek urgent medical advice; to get tested with streamlined signposting to services online or locally; are given information on how to look after their physical and mental health.
Appointments for testing & result notification
This service allows clinics to enter their available appointment slots for different types of services, enabling patients to find drive-through or clinic appointments for COVID-19 testing as well as easily book, reschedule or cancel. Once the test results are received, the patient can also be notified via the system.
The patient self-monitoring enables diagnosed patients to track their symptoms and monitor disease progression to help them look after themselves, stay safe and manage anxiety to improve their mental wellbeing. Depending on whether their symptoms improve or deteriorate, they can either feel reassured that no further intervention is required or receive an alert to seek professional medical advice.
