Objective: To outline a consensus designed process for triaging and managing patients with Post COVID syndrome at the Mayo Clinic. Patients and Methods:
We convened a central multidisciplinary team including members from General Internal Medicine, Occupational Medicine, Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation, Psychology, Allergy and Immunology, Infectious Disease, Pulmonology, Neurology, Cardiology, Pediatrics and Otorhinolaryngology, with membership from all the Mayo Clinic sites in Arizona, Florida, Iowa, Minnesota, and Wisconsin. Results: Consensus recommendations were made for best practice guidelines on triaging and managing patients. Several innovations were agreed upon including a PASC specific appointment request form for data collection, a bio-registry, a bio-repository, and a PASC specific treatment program. Conclusions: Given that each clinical site had individual clinical practices, these recommendations were implemented using different models, which may provide broad applicability to other clinical settings.
