In this study we will be monitoring for patient events (emergency department admission, hospital admission, admission to an observation unit, or death) and evaluating the feasibility and utility of using pinpointIQ in the management of patients with COVID-19. Vital sign (physiology data) is collected to build a Covid Decompensation Index and contribute data to a Covid Digital Hub supported by the National Institutes of Health.
This is a prospective, non-randomized, open-label, two-phase design. The primary focus for the study is data collection for index development. This will be done in two phases: the first phase allows for determination of predictor variables that establish the COVID-19 Decompensation Index (CDI) and the second phase establishes performance of the CDI. A participant is considered to have completed the study if he or she completes all phases of the study including the last day of monitoring (day 28).
Device: Use of the pinpointIQ solution (physIQ, Inc.)
Patients are monitored for 28 days post COVID19 diagnosis or COVID19 post-hospitalization discharge using the pinpointIQ solution.
