Head of the Development Team, Agus Budi Raharjo, S.Kom., M.Kom., Ph.D. demonstrate the Covid-19 Tracking Application to all Communication and Information Services (Diskominfo) throughout East Java.

Surabaya, 9 June 2020

The number of confirmed Covid-19 cases in East Java boost quite a lot. In Indonesia, East Java placed as second most populous province with Covid-19 patient after DKI Jakarta. In Collaboration with the East Java Communication and Information Office (Diskominfo), the Faculty of Intelligent Electrical and Informatics Technology (ELECTICS) of the The Sepuluh Nopember Institute of Technology (ITS) develop a tracking system to monitor the spread of Covid-19 case in East Java.

The processing and tracking of Covid-19 case data  is an important matter. But, the limited amount of staff in East Java Diskominfo led to a lack of focus on the development of the required system. Therefore, ITS through the ELECTICS dean offer assistance in developing the Covid-19 tracking system.

The video conference of Covid-19 Tracing Application Workshop and Socialization held by the Faculty of Electrical and Intelligent Information (FTEIC) attended by all Diskominfo throughout East Java.

In the video conference attended by all Diskominfo throughout East Java holded Tuesday (9/6), The head of the development team Agus Budi Raharjo, S.Kom., M.Kom., Ph.D. explains that the system serves as an effort to prevent the spread of Covid-19 disease.The web-based application were able to search travel history and contact between confirmed Covid-19 patients and other people. The data sorted in the system can also be used as an analysis material for the East Java Health Office (Dinkes) epidemiology team. “The application can support the government to make more efficient policy,” said the Informatics Engineering lecturer.The Academician who known as Agus BR explained, the Covid-19 tracking system was developed in two stages. The first phase, which runs from March to April has main features of recording patient data, close contact / people without symptoms and the patient travel history.For the first stage of the development, the team consisted of the ELECTICS family such as  Dr. I Ketut Eddy Purnama ST MT, Agus Budi Raharjo S Kom M Kom PhD, Faizal Johan S Kom MT, Wiwik Anggraeni S Si M Kom, Amir Mutashim (Information Systems Student ), Ahmad Laroy (Information Systems Student) and Argo Winoto from the East Java Health Office.Whereas in the second phase that runs from June to upcoming December, system will feature a case cluster visualization feature from various angles and epidemiological analysis. The main activity of the development will focus on optimizing the input data, display and visualization of collected data.Agus BR continued, his team will expand the zone of usefulness so that the system can be utilized by various stakeholders throughout East Java. Regarding the challenges in the second stage, he revealed that the incomplete entry and incomplete character of data can be a hindrance.For the development of this advance stage, the composition of the team changes slightly but still within the scope of ELECTICS family. The team consisted of Dr. Diana Purwitasari S. Kom M. Sc, Dr. Umi Laili Yuhana S. Kom M. Sc, Dr. Berlian Al Kindshi S. ST MT, Vincentius Raki (Doctoral student in the Department of Electrical Engineering), Amir Mutashim (2017 Information Systems Student) and Argo Winoto and Fitria Rizky from the East Java Health Office.As the socialization of the application use has been disseminated to all East Java Depkominfo, in the project which also funded from the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Special Interest Group on Humanitarian Technology (IEEE SIGHT) Agus hopes that the system would be useful according to it’s development targets. “It can also be used to prevent endemic/pandemic in the future,” concluded the doctoral graduate from Aix-Marseille University France.
