Wellness Study
Assessing Care Innovation and Wellness, Measuring the Value of Peer Support Alongside Medical Care

The Wellness Study works to develop and test the effectiveness of individuals tracking their symptoms, recording personal experiences about health, and understanding their coping mechanisms in parallel with existing healthcare treatments. The study provides a complement of tools to support self-care for those suffering from Long COVID and other chronic illnesses. There are three cohorts of participants and two of the three will be directed to interact with peers who have similar health conditions.

Problem
Problem (i.e. barrier, issue, complication, etc.) being solved for the end user
The Wellness Study was developed with patient disenfranchisement from the health system and unreasonable provider demands in mind before COVID-19 struck. The pandemic has accentuated the value of peer support to combat health inequities and injustices, caregiver burdens, and deficiencies of healthcare-for-profit.
Idea/solution to the problem, if applicable
Potential benefits of peer support include increased connection with others, self-confidence, empathy, and personal agency. Additionally, engaging confidentially with others who have similar lived experiences encourages resilience through the emotional impacts of Long Covid and other chronic illnesses.
Impact (i.e. measurable outcomes), if applicable
Test the effectiveness of individuals tracking their symptoms, recording personal experiences about health, and understanding their coping mechanisms in parallel with existing healthcare treatments.
