Throughout the demonstration, patients and their activities are tracked including encounters with other participants—healthy and infected, and changes occurring in health status as a result of certain events. These simulated activities represent one of five data collection points: hand washing, passing through a high-infection zone, recovery centers/treatment, interactions with other participants, and symptom inputs.
Hand washing reduces the likelihood that a participant will make other participants sick or sicker. Treatment will improve your health status, while entering new symptoms, passing through a high-infection zone, or coming within close proximity of an infected participant will worsen your simulated health status. Push notifications to your mobile phone alert you of your health state and recommendations for improving it.
As you walk around, your encounters will affect your health status—positive or negative. At any time, you can view your individual health status and the health status of participants near you in real time through the HPE RTHS app on your phone, or the dashboard, which has a rich set of individual and population views, at the HPE conference booth. All participant data is fed into this dashboard and the HPE RTHS system providing clinically relevant information and insights as the hypothetical outbreak is tracked.
