Using an app to support management of post COVID-19 condition

Clinician using tablet

“Digital applications were researched, and the team implemented the use of Living With Covid Recovery. This app meets the needs of both clinicians and patients, offering a symptom tracking ability for patients, a communication platform, data collection and an easy to access resource library.”

Key figures

  • “578 registered users in Oxfordshire Post COVID service (as of 25/01/2023).”
  • “I will always check a patient’s dashboard before a consultation so I can help to direct the conversation and assist in understanding when and where there may have been dips in recovery or increases in symptoms. It helps the patient to understand how useful the information is for them and for us.” – Emma Tucker, Post Covid Rehab Specialist, Oxford Health NHSFT.
  • “In our Fatigue Management workshops we encourage the use of energy mapping and/or activity diaries. Being able to encourage the completion of these within the app is so useful for patients and to show an example taken from within the technology.” – Rachael Rogers, myalgic encephalomyelitis or chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS) Clinical Lead, Oxford Health NHSFT.
