COVID-19 patients: treatment begins at home

LOCATION: Istituto di Ricerche Farmacologiche Mario Negri IRCCS di Milano (Mario Negri IRCCS Pharmacology Research Institute of Milan)

Main Contact: Guido Bertolini

SHORT DESCRIPTION: This is a small-scale, pilot feasibility study for an advanced home-monitoring model for COVID-19 patients. The purpose of the project is to support – not replace – the health system by providing practical help in initiating early, at-home treatment such as a respiratory physiotherapy program, or moving patients to the Emergency Department in an appropriate and timely manner. Specifically, the project aims to assess the feasibility and impact of an advanced home-monitoring model for COVID-19 patients to determine whether it can be exported to the entire region.
