COVID-19 Impact on Recovered Patients with Chronic Diseases
How will COVID-19 impact recovered patients with chronic diseases?
Currently, the primary focus of the pharma industry is on creating therapies, vaccines, and antibodies to help humanity during the COVID-19 pandemic. The goal of their crucial efforts is to return the world to some type of “normal.”
It is well documented that patients with conditions such as Type 2 Diabetes, serious heart conditions (including Heart Failure, Coronary Heart Disease, and Cardiomyopathy), COPD, Chronic Kidney Disease, Immunocompromised State, Solid Tumor Transplant, Sickle Cell Disease and BMI >30 are at the highest risk for COVID-19.
A critical question requiring further investigation is: what will be the long-term effects of the coronavirus on various disease states and existing therapy management?
A close examination of the COVID-19 patient journey will result in a better understanding of the impact of the virus on at-risk diabetes patients. Segmenting positive and negative COVID-19 diabetes patients provides a real world comparison of anonymized patient cohorts’ A1C, fasting blood sugars, and glucose levels. Linked with prescribed medications, this data will identify the COVID-19 impact on the patients’ prescribed drug therapy.
