Being quarantined at home with COVID-19 is really scary.
The Illinois Pandemic Health Worker Program digitally connects health workers with clients who are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms and need to stay home or quarantine to protect themselves and others. Through this program, OSF HealthCare and the State of Illinois proactively and digitally supports those needing care, while also reducing the potential influx of non-emergent patients into a hospital’s emergency department.
My team at IA Collaborative worked to rapidly design, develop, and launch a suite of patient-facing materials to make the home care process understandable and safe.
The PHW program currently serves the needs of individuals with COVID-19 across Illinois.
