Norman Regional’s Post COVID Recovery Program addresses medical conditions as they emerge in patients experiencing extended or severe post COVID-19 symptoms by providing a multidisciplinary assessment, treatment and resources for patients recovering from mild to severe or extended COVID-19, these patients are also known as having “Post COVID-19 Syndrome.”
The Post COVID Recovery Program will assist patients with re-entrance to the community and ensure continuity of care. Scheduling a patient to participate in the program will be the same as any referral to the clinic. Patients will self-report symptoms, which will help the Post COVID Recovery Program team in facilitating referrals. A Pulmonary Function Test will be performed in the clinic prior to the patient’s initial exam and medication reconciliation focusing on new medications since the original COVID-19 diagnosis will be completed. Tobacco use and depression screenings will be performed at each visit with each patient. Orders for further Diagnostic Imaging, Lab testing, and referrals to additional specialist will be facilitated as needed and directed by the provider. The patient will need to have a recent chest X-ray; the clinic will assist with facilitation of this.
