The Lifeguard C-19 app was developed rapidly to assist with the COVID-19 pandemic. It helps to effectively manage helplines to relieve the pressure from public health and emergency services. Users can reach the correct helplines, self-report their symptoms, get guidance, and track self-isolation periods. It enables public health authorities to track the progress of the virus, and to support appropriate responses so as to prevent clustering and spread of the virus as public traverses geo-locations, within and outside any country.

In partnership with Microsoft, the Lifeguard C-19 app will relieve the pressure on emergency services, while delivering up-to-date, validated information to the public. It enables users to reach the correct helpline or emergency centre, self-report their symptoms, track their isolation period and get real-time information — Relieving the pressure on governments and health authorities.
With the support of Microsoft, rapid prototyping of the digital solution on the Azure Cloud platform was possible. Lifeguard Digital Health was already working with emergency services in BC, with a proven life-saving digital solution to the opioid crisis.
Lifeguard and Microsoft partnered in 2019 to scale up Lifeguard’s pioneering opioid crisis related application along with a suite of other digital solutions aimed at supporting government-supported social housing, senior care facilities and dementia care.
The app informs the public with the touch of a button, and diverts emergency calls to appropriate helplines in Canada, based on need. It also offers validated real-time information available via CDC.
Patients are able to self-triage using the app, therefore reducing panic and phone calls to emergency and other health lines.
Real-time validated information available via CDC and health departments in any country, as well as location specific information (eg. shut down status, travel information) in real time.
Through Microsoft data centres in every country.
iOS and Android platforms via cell phones.
