Innovation: A virtual control centre for patients who have tested positive for COVID-19 that will be under the supervision of an expert infectious disease specialist. Expert can independently assess, validate, or augment the patient treatment plan to support optimal outcomes and target most seriously ill patients to be prioritised for specialist supervision. Acquired learnings about different patient needs will inform an artificial intelligence algorithm to provide predictions for patients who are likely to experience the worst outcomes.

Expected Results: The project has already demonstrated positive impact with a study published in Clinical Infectious Diseases demonstrating a 50% reduction in mortality rate.
