One Call expands CarePath program for COVID-19 sufferers
One Call, a provider of specialty network-management services for the workers’ compensation industry, has announced the expansion of its CarePath program – specifically, Respiratory Pathway – to meet the needs of those suffering from lingering complications of COVID-19 and symptoms long after testing negative.
About 80% of COVID-19 cases have mild to moderate symptoms and don’t require hospitalization, according to the Centers for Disease Control. However, a significant percentage deal with long-term impacts that can be debilitating and delay recovery. Those hospitalized with the disease may face more severe issues, such as acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), central and peripheral nerve impairment, altered mental status, acute kidney injury, atrophy and muscle weakness, blood clots and vascular conditions, hear complications, and pressure ulcers.
