Federal and state public health officials continue to promote the availability of treatment options for mild to moderate COVID-19 illness for non-hospitalized individuals. These treatment options can lower the chance of disease progression to severe illness, hospitalization, and death. Arti Barnes, MD, chief medical officer of the Illinois Department of Public Health, and Dheeraj Mahajan, MD, a private practice internist and geriatrician, will discuss the fiscal considerations for providing outpatient COVID-19 treatments, and the cost effectiveness of the various treatments now available. Additionally, they will share ‘real world’ physician experiences regarding use of therapeutics in non-hospitalized COVID-19 patients.
At the conclusion of this activity, learners will be able to:
- Describe the fiscal considerations of providing outpatient COVID-19 treatments
- Recognize the cost impact/cost effectiveness of the various COVID-19 outpatient treatment options
- Understand the real-world provider experiences around the provision of care for COVID-19 patients in the outpatient setting
