Today, one of the leading RPA vendors, Kryon announced the success of its Full-Cycle Automation Suite in assisting Brazil’s Ministry of Health to collect, process, validate, refine, and distribute data relating to the COVID-19 pandemic. In conjunction with implementation partner SOLVE, Kryon’s automation suite is working to streamline the complex, error-prone data collection and delivery process among Brazil’s 27 states and more than 7,500 hospitals.
Prior to implementing RPA, hospital medical and IT staff were tasked with manual data collection and removing personally identifiable information (PII) to comply with Brazil’s General Personal Data Protection Law. As patient loads grew, so did the time and resources required for encryption and decryption, and further processing.
Now, with Kryon Full-Cycle Automation, COVID-19 data is collected and checked for duplication and errors at several points while removing sensitive patient information before distribution to the Ministry of Health. The verified data is then pushed out to the Ministry of Health’s Federal portal providing frequent, accurate updates to the public on COVID-19 statistics and hospital bed usage. National statistics are published by the Ministry of Health online daily at 5 am.
