Monitoring Patients with COVID-19 Remotely

Many patients who have been diagnosed with COVID-19 do not need to be hospitalized, however their care team needs to monitor them in order to make sure that their condition isn’t worsening while they are at home. The Innovation Lab is working with Epic’s electronic health record and a multidisciplinary team from across BJC HealthCare and Washington University School of Medicine to develop and rapidly deploy a program to monitor patients’ symptoms and biometric information to ensure that they are recovering properly¬†while at home, and provide a video visit, if necessary.
