HKBU has received the IDC Digital Transformation Awards - DXa 2020 Special Award for Resiliency for the HKBU Health Declaration System in this year’s IDC DX Summit, by IDC Hong Kong.

 

The IDC Digital Transformation Awards, Hong Kong, is one of the top worldwide prestigious IT awards in the industry. The award scheme recognises outstanding organisations that have made critical breakthroughs in digital transformation throughout the Asia Pacific region, spread across seven different categories. This year a special award for resiliency was presented to organisations who have reimagined their business in the new normal.

 

The HKBU Health Declaration System, developed by HKBU’s Office of Information Technology (ITO), was selected among over 1,200 high-quality entries received from organisations across the Asia Pacific region. Faced with the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, the System is part of HKBU’s efforts to step up preventive and control measures to safeguard the health and safety of the University community. 

 

The System operates seamlessly with the Campus Access Smartcard Readers System, which includes readers at all campus entrances, ensuring that only those without any symptoms of sickness and without recent travel history to high COVID-19 risk areas will be allowed to access the campus. Since its inception, the System has realised a 100% smooth usage adoption by students and staff, and it has processed around 600,000 health declaration responses.
