The COVID-19 pandemic has posed several challenges on citizens and health systems. Information and Communication Technology (ICT) can be a valuable tool in providing tools for self-assessment and reporting of physical symptoms, early detection of symptom changes, up to date information towards citizen empowerment, personalized recommendations and communication with healthcare providers in case of need. To this direction, this paper reports on the design and implementation of a novel technical infrastructure to support citizens with possible or confirmed COVID-19 disease. The designed platform builds upon an existing personal health record to facilitate symptom tracking, self-management, and personalized recommendations, effective communication channels between patients and clinicians and public health authorities assisting citizens to remain longer safe at home.
