Infosys is partnering with the State of Rhode Island in launching a privacy-first contact tracing solution to help Rhode Islanders and state officials slow the spread of coronavirus throughout the state. This is part of the state's effort to safely reopen businesses while reducing occurrences of community transmission.

Leveraging existing Infosys technologies, the company developed a mobile app that will help Rhode Islanders follow required health and safety guidelines, monitor their own activities and support the Rhode Island Department of Health by providing accurate data with user consent.

The application, called CRUSH COVID RI, will utilize Infosys' Location Based Services platform to create individualized location diaries, while protecting user privacy. The mobile app will serve as a one stop shop for pandemic response, connecting Rhode Islanders with resources about quarantine and isolation supports, symptom monitoring, and up-to-date disease information from the Rhode Island Department of Health.

The user interface for the application was designed at Infosys' Providence Design + Innovation Center, and the app will include additional features, such as GPS-based location sensing, location maps and services and push notifications.
