Implementation of an e-health strategy for the screening and health education of post-Covid patients from an interdisciplinary approach.

Project: Research Project

Project Details


The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted the health of the population on a physical and mental level, which has generated an accelerated use of information and communications technologies to offer health care, surveillance and documentation services, as well as education and health research.

Thus, different e-health proposals have been developed in order to provide support to the general population during the pandemic, due to the evidence that demonstrates the facilitation of access to health education and participation of the population.

In this way, e-health tools make it possible to maintain care for people with chronic pathologies as well as provide support on education and prevention about COVID-19.

In Colombia, 2.1 million people have recovered from the disease, but they could be left with physical and mental sequelae, which is why the assessment, monitoring and health education of patients recovered from COVID-19 is important, from an interdisciplinary approach ( medicine, physiotherapy, speech therapy, occupational therapy, nutrition).

Therefore, creating an interdisciplinary educational strategy, based on e-health, for post-COVID-19 patient screening and education, is pertinent in the process of physical and mental recovery of the affected population, through access to reliable information. that supports post-COVID-19 rehabilitation processes, in order to achieve informed and empowered people, families and communities, minimizing risks.
