COVID-19 Community Response Update - March 20

Once again, thanks to everyone for keeping all this energy around the response we are putting to the COVID-19 outbreak! Ideas keep popping and we’re reviewing and merging similar ideas to get people in contact with each other and make the biggest impact. Let’s keep fighting this together and prove that we can overcome any threat.

We are happy to announce the next idea that was selected!

Criteria reminder:

  • Potential impact as measured by total population helped

  • Technical feasibility of using the OutSystems platform

  • Project team commitment to build and run the project

  • Availability of relevant subject matter experts in the team 

Project #4

The idea is to provide a simple portal where people looking for help get linked to people who are offering help. In the portal, people receive notifications when a possible match is found and can actively contact each other.

This project is aimed to succeed since it will rewrite an existing implementation of the site, which is a rudimentary implementation of the idea with no automation to put people in contact, but already with a lot of adherence. With the adoption of the OutSystems platform, this is now going to get serious and the Dutch television will even advertise the site tomorrow.

We’re up to four projects running now, and we have a lot more in discussions. We appreciate all the ideas and work the community is putting into these initiatives!
