Today, the team responsible for c19oregon.com">http://c19oregon.com">c19oregon.com (Multnomah, Washington, Clackamas and Columbia Counties) have some exciting announcements that will make the website useful for those who will be returning to work or traveling in public in the coming weeks or months. The website was officially launched on April 8th of this year in anticipation of a large volume of potential coronavirus patients flooding our area 911 system and emergency rooms.
Thanks to our current and successful stay at home effort lead by Governor Kate Brown, the surge of patients has not happened. With over 30,000 uses of c19oregon.com, there is potential for the website to help those who are returning to work over the next weeks and month. Dr. Jon Jui, medical director for Multnomah Counties Emergency Medical System and an emergency room physician, says “The website continues to provide important information to people concerned they may have symptoms of coronavirus. With the addition of the OHSU Nurse Triage program, if people are following the direction the site gives them, we have more people seeking help that need it and staying home if they don’t. This is a win for patients and our medical system.”
The website is a symptom checker. After entering your age and zip code (the only identifiable information required), the site asks a series of questions regarding your symptoms and medical history. Based on your answers, the site provides you an assessment of your risk to coronavirus and suggests you seek help by way of location-based emergency rooms and urgent care clinics. Additional resources such as 211.org and now OHSU Nurse Triage are provided to those with moderate and mild symptoms.
The website c19oregon.com is a variation of c19check.com which was created by Vital Software based out of Atlanta, Georgia as a collaborative project with the Emory School of Medicine. It has been approved by the CDC as a coronavirus symptom checker and has been used just under 1 million times in over 20 countries worldwide. The website c19oregon.com is separate project that involves Multnomah, Washington, Clackamas, and Columbia Counties. All other Oregon counties can use the site as a symptom checker but only the counties mentioned above provide specific direction including the location-based emergency rooms, urgent clinics, 211.org, and OHSU Nurse Triage.
