Minimising impact on vulnerable patients: data-driven design, monitoring and adaptation of COVID and non-COVID clinical care pathways
University of Aberdeen with NHS Grampian
Key Focus of Study
Vulnerable patients with multiple health problems need regular clinic appointments and hospital admissions. However, to mimimise their chances of being infected with COVID-19, the government has advised them to self-isolate and avoid contact with hospitals and health care settings. This strategy could make their underlying conditions worse, unless the NHS can find a different way of looking after them. We will use clinical data from vulnerable patients whose current treatment is being disrupted to find out what their needs are and to plan alternative ways of continuing their care.
