How do I know if my patient is a good candidate for a JH PACT referral?
JH PACT is generally a good fit for COVID-19 patients who required ICU care for at least 48 hours. A JH PACT referral can also be beneficial to seriously ill patients who experienced any of the following, even if they didn’t need an ICU stay:
- Significant persistent respiratory symptoms
- New or increased oxygen requirements at discharge
- Inpatient pulmonary consultation that recommended enrollment in the program
- Inpatient rehabilitation consultation with recommendations for post-discharge rehab
Finally, patients with lingering symptoms eight weeks post-COVID-19 diagnosis may qualify; a physician referral is required for discussion of services and evaluation.
Physician referral is required for an appointment in the JH PACT clinic.
*Please note that due to COVID-19 volume fluctuations, eligibility criteria are subject to change. At this time, due to telemedicine restrictions and high volumes, we are unable to accept out-of-state referrals.
