Abstract—Zika virus is a global public health emergency, and countries that have outbreaks of zika, dengue, and chikungunya, all carried by the mosquito vector (Aedes Aegypti) needed to be alert to their environment and population. This paper presents a proposal for screening system carried out in Brazilian health units, using a mobile application that works in conjunction with a web application, being able to obtain greater profit and effectiveness in the accomplishment of a possible final diagnosis, due to the large number of cases of diseases transmitted by vector Aedes Aegypti. These diseases affect a large part of Brazilian population in several regions, which nowadays live a triple epidemic of arboviruses, but reports like these are also presented in many other countries. The tools presented in this research aim to reduce the time of care in the main health units, through screening suspected patients. These factors together propose facilitating both patient´s life and health units’ proceedings. The research presents information both from a technical and theoretical point of view, of the three types of diseases caused by the mosquito, necessary for using the proposed system.
