The aim of this study is to provide a safe and supportive alternative to admission for patients with COVID-19 in their home environment. Monitoring of patients at home is likely an effective utilization of health care professionals to reduce health care expenses and a safe alternative to regular admission for a selective group of COVID-19 patients. Diagnosed patients presumed to benefit from admission to a regular ward, will be included in the project. Patients are selected from the emergency department (ED) or from the infectious diseases wards. After giving their informed consent, the patients will have sensors attached to their torso. The sensors will continuously monitor the patient’s oxygen saturation, respiratory rate, pulse, temperature, and intermittent blood pressure measurements. A corona team consisting of a doctor and a nurse will be responsible for monitoring the continuous data flow and performing daily video consultations with the patients. If the vital signs worsen, the doctor on call will perform a video consultation with the patient to evaluate if interventions or higher level of care are needed. The patients may also contact the hospital if they feel a change in their condition. The project will collect data about vital signs, symptomatology, laboratory tests, and the usage of health care resources. The first publication will be a pilot study describing the concept. After initial adjustments, a larger evaluation of the home follow up model and the financial aspects of the project economics will be published. The third study will be a clinical description of the COVID-19 cohort followed in the study and describe the course of the disease, risk factors of clinical deterioration and need of mechanical ventilation. Many of the patients at risk of deterioration will never need hospital treatment. Thus, monitoring them outside the hospital will reduce the overcrowding in the hospitals, the risk of spread of the infection to health care workers, and reduce costs of health care.
