The Home Quarantine System (Házi Karantén Rendszer – HKR in Hungary) is a smartphone application that helps authorities to continuously monitor officially home quarantined peoples’ compliance with quarantine rules without personal contact as well as being able to keep a tab on the their health status through short medical check questionnaires.
The users of the quarantine app are people who have been officially home quarantined. The use of the application is voluntary. Those who decide to use the app must download the app, register and do regular remote check-ins using the application on their smart phones. A check-in is performed by opening the app and doing a selfie photo at random time intervals in day hours. (Between 8.00AM and 20.00PM).
How does the application work for the user?
While in home quarantine, the HQS system sends remote monitoring requests to the patient at random time intervals via email and sms. These requests are easy to fulfill using your mobile device: whenever a remote monitoring request pops up, just start the HQS application on your mobile device within 10 minutes of receiving the request and fulfill the request. When performing a check-in, the system automatically takes pictures of the patient to verify their identity and reads their location to compare it with with the address of the home quarantine provided during registration. The system also requests the user to fill medical check questionnaires 2 times a day, delivered through the application.
