The COVID@Home Initiative is a collaboration between Primary Care Providers, Home and Community Care and Support Services and the Mississauga Health Ontario Health Team (MOHT) and is intended to optimize home based care for patients who do not need immediate hospital attention but may be a high risk of developing serious symptoms from COVID-19.

Early identification of patients with COVID-19 and regular structured virtual visits with these individuals have been shown to reduce their anxiety about the illness, improve their adherence to self care and support early identification of those at risk for deterioration.

The Monitoring Teams will perform daily virtual consults with patients who are enrolled to the Program. The Monitoring Team Clinician will be continuously assessing the development of worrisome symptoms during their virtual consults and a referral to the ED will be considered if certain clinical indicators are discovered.
