Extending CTSA Tools to Facilitate COVID-19 Home Monitoring
The Biomedical Informatics core and SUCCESS Center at the South Carolina Clinical and Translational Research (SCTR) Institute teamed up with the Employee Health office at the Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC) to create an online home monitoring log using REDCap. This tool allows staff with potential exposures to COVID-19 to record twice daily temperatures and symptoms on a personalized log. This information is available in real-time to MUSC employee health staff so that they can direct staff for appropriate follow-up and authorize return to work. Since being developed the tool has been shared across the REDCap consortium for use by other programs.
