In the course of 2019 Lepida has migrated all the servers of the regional Open Data service within its Datacenters, also making a major technological upgrade. At the same time, the application was improved by updating the portal https://dati.emilia-romagna.it/ at the beginning of 2020, making it compliant with navigation from mobile devices and renewing its graphics.
Over time, the safety and protection of citizens has become a growing need for all member Bodies, which have often chosen the installation of an integrated camera system to monitor their territories as a prevention tool. With this in mind, in recent years, Lepida has developed the VideoNet platform, which has been completely revised in recent months, offering a centralized video management service for the institutions involved and allowing integrated management of the new security systems that are gradually being installed.
The Regional Law 7/2019 provides that the Emilia-Romagna Region, for the management of the production of data in its possession, issues specific measures in compliance with the necessary protection of the public interest it pursues. This means that it is not possible a priori to make the Region's data available to third parties, but that a special investigation must be carried out for each single set of data.
The pandemic triggered by the spread of the new Coronavirus has altered the habits and lifestyle of each individual and has inevitably raised the need to remodulate work modalities and activities. In this scenario, ANCI Emilia-Romagna and Lepida launched a co-spacing initiative to support those looking for a space to work remotely, equipped with connectivity and extra services, to facilitate the resumption of some public and private activities.
Starting from May 11th, the Emilia-Romagna Region has set the regional plan on serological tests. The coordinates of the plan require that the tests be carried out in a context of clinical appropriateness, therefore only upon medical request. The Regional Decree 350/2020, which traces all the phases of the screening program management, also defines a path of maximum simplification for employers who voluntarily decide to carry out serological screening on their employees.
During the health emergency caused by the Coronavirus, teachers and students had to adapt to a new situation, that of distance learning; the importance of connectivity to schools as centers of content provision, as well as of content fruition as they already were, has emerged in an always more binding way. The paradigm of symmetry of the band, always supported by Lepida, was therefore supported by facts.
The Coronavirus pandemic is not only spreading rapidly, but also quickly revolutionizing the way we work around the world. The most impacted dimension is definitely technological. In the space of a couple of weeks, the need to activate effective, fast and secure responses has arisen to enable thousands of workers to remote working, with personal devices or from home, with private connections, with different bandwidth capabilities and uneven architectural solutions.
Always more frail elderly people are followed by the e-Care service: since March 10th, upon recommendation by the Local Health Authority, the Municipality and the Metropolitan Territorial Socio-Health Conference, the e-Care service has been strengthened to cope with the COVID-19 emergency.
