“As long as one province still has the epidemic, the whole country will not end the epidemic. TT-Hue is a successful model that needs to be replicated and shared with the whole country in the application of IT in disease prevention and control,” said Deputy Director of the International Cooperation Department (Ministry of Information and Communications).

5 years of cherishing

Five years ago, leaders of the Department of Information and Communications of TT-Hue province cherished the idea that in a short time, each resident of this province would be granted a QR code for convenience in work and travel as well as carrying out administrative procedures. main.

When going to the market, the merchant only needs to give the disease control card to the market management board to scan the code.

In the first months of 2021, when the Covid-19 epidemic broke out in Ho Chi Minh City and many provinces and cities across the country, a series of workplaces, schools, markets, hospitals… all over TT-Hue province were required to post stickers. QR code board for epidemic prevention and control.

Technology applications on the Hue-S platform are also recommended by the government for people to use for medical declaration and disease prevention. This has greatly supported the government in monitoring, tracing and zoning out epidemics when community infections appeared in the area.

“However, not all people have smartphones to scan QR codes or register for the Hue-S platform. So the question is how can everyone have a QR code?

Instead of people actively scanning the code to fight the epidemic, should this be assigned to the management agencies?”, Mr. Nguyen Xuan Son – Director of the Department of Information and Communications of TT-Hue province wondered.

When going to the market, the merchant only needs to give the disease control card to the market management board to scan the code.

On September 19, 2021, after the national QR code was connected, the Director of Hue Department of Information and Communication took the initiative to make a disease control card with a national QR code and was approved by the Provincial People’s Committee.

The national QR code is a strategic policy of the Ministry of Information and Communications and has been urgently implemented by TT-Hue province.

As a specific example of these stories, Mr. Tu emphasized, it is no coincidence that since the 4th outbreak, TT-Hue has never had to implement social distancing, all government activities, Businesses and people still go on as usual.

“Along with other methods, TT-Hue controls and prevents the epidemic remotely with technology. When technology is considered as a “vaccine” against the epidemic, it will be effective,” said Deputy Director General Hoang Anh Tu.

Deputy Director Hoang Anh Tu tests the QR code at the Department of Information and Communications of TT-Hue province.

Disease control cards do the opposite. For example, at Dong Ba market, there are 12 control points at 12 entrances to the market, every small trader, every citizen entering and leaving is scanned the QR code on the Control Card by the Management Board.

People can also use the Disease Control Card to declare information at vaccination and testing points.

Up to now, the whole province of TT-Hue has had 714,754 (62.84% of the population) registered and activated disease control cards. This is a very impressive number after nearly 1 month this province has activated the disease control card with the national QR code for the people.

For people who have never used a Smartphone, small businesses that do business in the market all year round, and small students who do not have a phone will be issued a card with the title “Epidemic control card”.

Therefore, it has created a sense of peace of mind and curiosity that makes people come to the experience scanning point and thereby form QR scanning habits. Hue has done a difficult job of the technology world, that is, people have faith in a “square code” to help protect them against the epidemic.

“The fact that people put their trust in the “square” cards shows the talent of the people who do administration and management.

When people believe, doing anything is easy. The most difficult thing is gaining the trust of the people, and technology is always transparent, the data does not lie.

The success of TT-Hue is to simplify technology, manage flexibly and look at the actual efficiency of application, not rigidly, forcing people to follow the government’s decisions,” Deputy Department of State said. Head Hoang Anh Tu emphasized.
