Home Monitoring of COVID Positive SESLHD Residents
What is TCC-COVID?
The TCC-COVID program supports people with COVID-19 who are isolating at home. The program includes a device called a pulse oximeter and a smartphone application or App. The pulse oximeter allows you to measure your heart rate and the level of oxygen in your blood. The App allows you to send this information to the South Eastern Sydney COVID-19 monitoring team looking after you. The team can use this information to help assess how COVID-19 is affecting your health. The main aim of our remote monitoring program is to ensure you are safe whilst isolating at home.
How do I participate?
If you have received a positive COVID result and live within the region of South Eastern Sydney Local Health District you will automatically be contacted by a staff member from the South Eastern Sydney COVID monitoring team. They will ask you a range of questions and assess if you would benefit from the TCC-COVID program.
