NEDA’s ‘Project Connect’ pilots in Pasig City


PASIG CITY, May 21 (PIA) -- The National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA) recently partnered with the City Government of Pasig with its ‘Project Connect.’ 

Initiated by NEDA, ‘Project Connect’ is made possible by the data analytics team of AIM-SITE and powered by the Aboitiz Foundation.

The said project which is currently being pilot tested in Pasig City connects covid testing data (DOH CBMS system) to the city’s contact tracing app or the PasigPass. An algorithm then helps identify and notify close contacts automatically.

From the start, contact tracing has been difficult for LGUs. Our 190 contact tracers are often overloaded. Project Connect automates, speeds up the contact tracing process,” said Pasig City Mayor Vico Sotto.

The PasigPass, which is the city’s contact tracing app, is also inter-connected with the contact tracing apps of Valenzuela City (ValTrace), Mandaluyong City (MandaTrack), and Antipolo City (Bantay Covid) in Rizal province. (PIA NCR)
