Blockchain-enabled application developer Acoer has launched a data visualization tool to track the spread of coronavirus in real time. The platform uses the decentralized public network Hedera Hashgraph to ensure data integrity.

According to the statement, published on February 3, the purpose of the tool is to help the healthcare and life sciences sector to easily visualize the Coronavirus outbreak through the HashLog data visualization mechanism.

“Created to interact in real time with Hedera Hashgraph, the publicly distributed, enterprise-level book, the Coronavirus HashLog panel allows researchers, scientists and journalists to easily understand virus spread and trends over time, from a wide range public data, including data from the Disease Control Center (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO).

According to the announcement, HashLog allows the visualization of various data, including the number of confirmed cases, deaths and recoveries for every 100 infections and trends over time. In addition, it is possible to use dynamic sorting and filtering features and download the contents.

Acoer CEO Jim Nasr explained that the platform was developed to allow access to data on the virus, which is constantly growing, in an easy and simple way. He added:

“With HashLog, our goal is to make data collection automated and data visualization rich, dynamic and intuitive. Particularly with my own experience in public health and tenure at CDC, we are also strong believers that supporting public health is an incredibly important mission and, as far as we can, it is our responsibility to innovate to improve it. ”

Mance Harmon, CEO of Hedera Hashgraph, pointed out that both healthcare and public health are sectors in which Distributed Accounting Technology (DLT) can provide computational confidence and serve as a reliable source.

"Acoer's work to make this Coronavirus data so easy to view and understand is a great example of this, and we commend them for this innovative use of DLT for the public good," added Harmon.
