Strategic Action "O Brasil Conta Comigo": Development of a tool for managing professionals willing to act in the fight against COVID-19
When the Covid-19 pandemic began, it was up to the Brazilian Ministry of Health (MS) to produce a nationwide health policy, organizing and planning strategies to mitigate health problems related to the SARS-CoV2 infection. In this context, and in cooperation with the Bridge Laboratory at UFSC, they developed a tool for the strategy "O Brasil Conta Comigo" (Brazil counts on me) in order to assist health managers to cope with the deficit in the hiring of human resources. An application was developed in record time that allowed the voluntary registration of health professionals willing to act in health care to deal with Covid-19. Thus, it was possible to increase agility in the process of hiring health professionals in several regions of the country, as well as in the production of the largest self-declaratory database of health professionals in Brazil.
