Protocols to address COVID-19 have taken priority for every health system in the world. Health systems are on the front lines of a pandemic in assessing, diagnosing, and treating patients with COVID-19 along with other trauma and illnesses.
To stay ahead of the curve, health systems need to scale proactive COVID-19 education and information to patients and community members to make sure healthcare workers are spending time on patients that need help the most. As a result, health systems are using COVID Companion to proactively inform patients on what to do to prevent sickness as well as what to do and where to go if they do get sick.
COVID Companion is a free program that connects patients with local public health resources and shares CDC recommendations for improved health literacy and community preparedness during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Although it is not a replacement for medical evaluation or emergency services, COVID Companion reminds patients that if they are sick and they begin experiencing difficulty breathing, they should follow CDC guidelines and reach out immediately.
