GPs will get support. Because the Home Care Program has been launched to help them supervise patients with confirmed COVID-19 infection. Importantly, the program will automatically cover people with COVID-19 who are over 55 years old and remain in home isolation. What about the others?
PZU Zdrowie doctors involved in the program
The Ministry of Health informed that it wants all patients with a positive test result for COVID-19 to be included in the Home Care program. It is about remote monitoring with a pulse oximeter. The pilotage of this solution was tested, among others, in the Malopolska region, which we have written about in more detail here. Now the devices will be distributed to all patients remaining at home with a confirmed COVID-19 infection. The program will automatically include people with COVID-19 who are over 55 years old and remain in home isolation. The other patients have two paths – they can fill in the Pulsocare form or be qualified by a GP registered in the Home system.
The program is not only a device and application. As we read on the government website, all test results are to be sent to a central database. There, the consultants and doctors of PZU Zdrowie will take care of monitoring the results of patients’ measurements and will notify the Emergency Service if necessary.
COVID-19 is there any stabilisation?
After weeks of dynamic growth of reported COVID-19 cases in our country and numbers exceeding even 20,000 cases per day, the Ministry of Health has recently reported lower numbers. According to official data, yesterday the coronavirus was confirmed in 5,533 people. However, it is difficult to talk about stabilisation. In total, 990,811 people received a positive COVID-19 test result until yesterday in Poland, 17,150 of whom died. It is worth noting that 577,514 people were found to be cured.
Furthermore, so far in Poland 39,236 beds have been prepared for COVID-19 patients, 21,594 of which are occupied. We have 3,074 ventilators, of which 2,118 are occupied. Moreover, 292,277 people are in quarantine and 11,504 are under epidemiological monitoring.
