Project description Background After hospital discharge, COVID-19 patients follow various aftercare paths, for example in a rehabilitation center, nursing home, or physiotherapy practice. We still know little about the eventual recovery after COVID-19 and the effect of these aftercare pathways. Target Mapping the long-term consequences of COVID-19 and further developing the aftercare paths. Method COVID-19 patients who have been admitted to hospital in Rotterdam-Rijnmond will be followed for 2 years. A lot of data is collected, such as patient flows, health care use and (predictors of) physical, cognitive and psychological recovery. What are the benefits? It is expected that patients who have experienced COVID-19 after hospital discharge may experience complaints in various areas for a long time. The research provides insight into the long-term consequences of COVID-19 and the aftercare is better tailored to the patient.
