TKC is a COVID response application designed to integrate passive and active surveillance by providing citizens with innovative and accessible touchpoints to report symptoms related to communicable diseases, such as COVID-19. TKC enables LGU verification and is also integrated with the main Contact Tracing Data Warehouse, CDRS, COVIDKaya, and FASSSTER. This platform bridges local data collection to national analytics through its integrations using open standards and strengthens LGU capability to respond to COVID-19 and also prevent future pandemics.
What are the objectives?
1) Understand the purpose of passive surveillance and value in having an early warning system to monitor and manage spread of communicable diseases in local communities
2) Capacitate participants on how to use DOH’s passive surveillance or citizen reporting applications and their features.
3) Train participants on how to identify possible high-risk reports or clustering of cases and properly verifying citizen reports.
4) Develop capability of participants to conduct active surveillance such as contact tracing using TKC and how to take advantage of the integrations with the CT Warehouse, CDRS, COVIDKAYA and FASSSTER.
