Guardian Angel COVID-19: a human and digital structure to facilitate the monitoring of patients suspected of or carrying COVID-19 in New Aquitaine – ACCOMPANY
In order to assist city caregivers for the management of persons suspect of or affected by COVID-19 in the Nouvelle-Aquitaine region, we have built a device composed of a call and mailing platform to answer practical questions, a web application to survey patients at home associated with a platform of disease management.
This research project aims to assess the efficiency of the device, the sociological impact of the perception of the epidemic and of the organizational scheme of the device, to carry out epidemiological research on the COVID-19 epidemic in the Nouvelle-Aquitaine region.
The epidemiologic aims of this project are to study the deleterious or protective impact of pre-existing treatment on the development of COVID-19 infection, to describe the different evolutionary profiles of patients according to age, location and personal risk factors, to perform an epidemiologic study on the diffusion of the epidemic and the potential influence of various environmental and anthropic parameters. To confirm the diagnosis of COVID-19, we will use retrospectively a serodiagnostic when available.
This study should provide a lot of information on the COVID-19 epidemic, especially on patients only followed outside the hospital, and the usefulness of a city-hospital coordination structure to follow complex patients and to face health crisis.
