As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Data Science team at VNSNY has developed a new application, VisitContactTrace, to support infection control practices.
Recognizing the value this could have for other home care organizations, VNSNY is making the application available to the open-source community, so that other organizations can have free access to this resource to enhance our collective efforts to contain the spread of COVID-19 and other infectious diseases.
The VisitContactTrace application allows users to upload their own visit data in an excel or csv format, and use the tool in a variety of ways:
Additionally, the tool is flexible to incorporate future optimizations – other organizations are welcomed to collaborate with VNSNY through the open-source community to continue to enhance and improve it.
To access the application and instructions for use, please visit our GitHub page.
