A community solution to ensure reliable resource allocation in the fight against COVID-19
Where people help each other
An aggregate app for crowdsourcing and resource allocation
To fight against the recent outbreak of covid19 cases and the lack of resources in India, we are launching a decentralized web app, Karuna, for crowdsourcing information and providing real time updates of beds, oxygen and hospital supplies in India.
This is a volunteer effort powered by the PathCheck foundation.
Access to real-time information about resources close to them
Communicate with doctors and hospitals for a streamlined approach to resource allocation
Integrated surveys to help in the crowdsourcing effort
Optimized Resource Allocation Network
For the hospitals and the general population who want a decentralized platform to know where resources are allocated, to reach out to other hospitals and administration and to share information about hospital beds, oxygen, food and other resources, the PathCheck India Karuna system is a web platform that will allow for constructive interaction between hospital administration, doctors and the population while remaining easy to use for all parties.
Features, Crowdsourcing, and More
Recognized by the Ministry of Education of India, the Karuna (previously CovidRelief) application provides real-time information about resources such as beds, oxygen, plasma and food leads based on Twitter feeds and official governmental leads. Total hits on webapp: 23.4 million (as of 3rd May)
Secure, anonymous, and privacy-centered crowdsourcing options to help share important information about resources and get accurate predictions of COVID-19 cases spikes in the future
Easily get access to inventory such as beds, oxygen, plasma and more from hospitals near you with a mapped interface of availabilities next to you at all time.
