CREATING COHORTS FOR VULNERABLE POPULATIONS FOR COVID-19
Our focus since the coronavirus situation evolved is to identify and segment patients known to be the most vulnerable from the virus. Even in April, there are still many unknowns surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic. Worldwide observations indicate that the highest number of people perishing are older persons age 60 and above, yet healthy, younger people are still contracting it with a difficult battle and recovery ahead of them.
Based on what we do know, those combating underlying conditions such as hypertension, diabetes, lung disease, cancers, heart disease, respiratory conditions, and other conditions that weaken the immune system are at the highest risk. On May 6th, join Josh Patten, the VP of Operations, and Maha Salah-Ud-Din, the Director of Advisory Services, for another exclusive client webinar as part of our Thought Leadership User Series on the use Lightbeam Cohort Builder.
With this solution, users can separate patients in their population by age and other demographics, as well as Johns Hopkins ACG® Diagnosis Specialty Categories, to determine who is at the highest risk of fatality from COVID-19.
The categories include:
- Endocrine for Diabetes
- Malignancies for Cancer
- Respiratory for COPD
- Cardiovascular for Hypertension
Clients will learn how to maximize their use of the cohort builder and inside information on how to best act to produce more positive outcomes.
