Overview of innovation

TjopTjop is a mobile digital screening app that assists with mandatory health screening and digitised record keeping, and provides a dashboard display with results for data analysis. It is an affordable, easy to use, all-in-one Covid-19 health screening solution for schools and businesses. The app requires that each person authorised to enter a particular property be issued with a QR code as an identification token and that all points of entry are equipped with a smartphone loaded with the TjopTjop app, and a digital thermometer.
