Decision Support System by Sapio Analytics

Knowing the exact cause and extent of a problem on a granular level is the most important requirement to effectively solve it.

In the scenario of COVID-19 pandemic, knowing the current extent and future prediction of the problems can help the decision makers take the right measures to implement situations like lock-downs smoothly and to decide its extent and its enforceability in a particular area within the city. This will ensure that, the city’s healthcare infrastructure and other resources are used for the right purposes without getting overburdened, effectively helping save lives and containing the spread. This will also ensure optimized impact on economy, thus making sure that the impact is not higher than what it should have been. Most importantly, it is able to provide direct correlations between lockdown, even on a ward levels and the spread of the virus, which no model in the world has been able to do in a strictly Indian context. It is provisioned to add local context and help local bodies make decisions.

With the help of the real time data available, we have created models that can help make the right decisions by understanding the extent of the problem. The first version of the model is ready, and continuous work is on to create more advanced versions. We are ready to use data as a weapon to help contain this pandemic in the best possible manner.
