Our acting

We work side by side with states and municipalities to improve the flow, collection and analysis of data from health services in order to support public management decision making and positively impact the lives of the population.


In partnership with IEPS and Instituto Arapyaú, we created an online platform to support Brazilian municipalities and states in responding to the coronavirus with tools and specialized assistance. Throughout 2020, CoronaCidades started to host the Farol Covid, which offers an intelligent analysis of open data to show the coronavirus situation in each Brazilian city and also the Escola Segura, with guides and protocols to enable a planned reopening of the public network education.

Covid-19 data panel in Ceará

The Ceará State Alert Levels panel offers the main Covid-19 indicators collected and updated continuously. The tool aims to inform the population about the situation of Covid-19 in their region and provide support to public managers, recommending actions for each indicator that shows a growth trend. The panel, launched in December 2020, is the result of the partnership between Vetor Brasil and Impulso, in collaboration with the Planning, Health and Economic Development teams of the State of Ceará, through the Vectors Impulsando Governos program.

Automation of the Covid Data Bulletin in Amapá

We automated the epidemiological bulletin of the Amapá government, with data on the Covid-19 scenario in the state. With the novelty, the preparation of the epidemiological bulletin, which used to be done on a white board, became more agile, ensuring more information reliability and allowing servers to redirect more than 100 hours a week to other intelligence activities and response planning coronavirus. The initiative was part of the Vectors Impulsando Governos project, which had the partnership of the Samaritano Association and the Arapyaú Institute, in which trainees pre-selected by Vetor Brasil had the support of the Impulso team to act in person, alongside public servants, in developing analytical capacity in governments.

Electronic form to view municipal health data

With the objective of providing more agility and maturity to the flow of data from health services, the Impulso team worked side by side with servers from Brazilian municipalities in the creation of an Electronic Flu Syndrome Notification Form.

The solution, digital and free, replaces paper notifications, which favors data visualization and monitoring of Covid-19 in the municipalities. The form was initially implemented in the municipality of Bezerros, in Pernambuco, and gained new versions and adaptations to serve five other municipalities in the country. The initiative was carried out within the scope of the Crisis Management Support Program of Instituto Votorantim and BNDES.

Health in the City Agenda

An initiative of Impulso, IEPs and the Arapyaú Institute, the Health in the City Agenda brings 10 proposals to respond to the challenges of Primary Care in Brazilian municipalities and guide public management.

Bed regulation panel in Alagoas

The pandemic highlighted the need for regulation, that is, a queue for access to beds, agile and centralized to guarantee access and quality treatment to the population. However, many governments still have little visibility into the provision of services and the speed of the regulatory process. We designed indicators for the regulation of Covid-19 beds in the Alagoas Department of Health regarding access, regulation time and case resolution time, to allow managers to monitor, analyze and propose actions to improve the regulatory process.
