Project Lead: Professor Nikhil Hirani

COVID-19 can cause multiple medical problems, for example pneumonia, kidney failure, confusion, blood clots etc. that involve different specialists, in the same patient. In the past each specialist would make their own arrangement to see or review the patient after discharge and perform blood tests, x-rays etc.

Multiple visits to different departments are not an ideal way of caring for patients, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic. For this reason we are designing a new way of reviewing patients after discharge that involves the specialists talking to each other, making a plan for each patient and if the patient needs tests or an appointment, these will done in one hospital visit.

We hope this will improve the patient experience and avoid unnecessary risks.
