People who survive COVID-19-related severe (critical) illness have complex care needs, requiring support from health and social care professionals in hospital and community settings. Long COVID is increasingly recognised as a public health issue. There is a pressing need for solutions that make better use of data from health records to support care for patients and families during recovery.
The project aims to identify the information that health and care professionals need to provide care for people recovering from COVID. It will also use data to better match up the care needs of people with available treatment options. In addition, the project aims to find ways of presenting this information to health and care professionals that means that they can quickly and efficiently understand what care patients and families need.
The project team will work closely with patients, families and the public to ensure that the work we do is relevant and focused to their needs.
