The education will take approximately 15-20 minutes and be provided by the Triple-I Nurse either in person at the participants home or over video/ telephone call.
Participants will be monitored for changes in temperature, heart rate, respiratory rate, oxygen levels and symptoms of COVID-19 for the length of their isolation period until clinical clearance is granted. Biometric readings and alerts will be monitored by the clinical staff from the Triple I (Hub) who will escalate to the relevant doctor for a consultation and a decision will be made on the participants clinical care as per SWSLHD Procedure for "Follow-up of Positive COVID-19 patients in home isolation".

Statistical methods / analysis
Patients recently diagnosed with COVID-19 who are currently under isolation protocol or about to undergo isolation will be considered as potential participants.

Fifty (50) consented participants will be provided with the Everion armband and educated in the utilisation and care of the technology. Participants will be monitored for the length of their isolation period until clinical clearance is granted. Biometric readings and alerts will be monitored by the clinical staff at the Triple I (Hub) who will escalate clinical management as per South Western Sydney Local Health District Procedure for “Follow-up of positive Covid-19 patients in home isolation”.

The data collected will be analysed by the clinical team to establish accuracy and efficacy; the clinical team will also complete a questionnaire comparing the experience against normal isolation follow-up protocol. Patients will fill out a questionnaire regarding their experience of using the Everion.
