A research study is seeking people with Long COVID to join focus groups this week.

DDM Health, makers of the Gro Health app and Royal Holloway, University of London have partnered to improve Long COVID patient recovery through voice-based AI-symptom tracking and personalised rehabilitation.

The team is now conducting focus groups to better understand people with Long COVID experiences and their opinions on a range of topics including AI and chatbots.

Two focus groups are taking place virtually on Wednesday, May 3, 2023:

The Gro Health app provides a pathway for patients with Long COVID which comprises a multidisciplinary rehabilitation care plan based on a person’s current health status and addresses physical, mental and social needs, and outcomes tracking.

According to a review of Long COVID and diabetes mellitus, patients with type 1 or type 2 diabetes appeared more likely to develop long COVID-19 syndrome than those without diabetes. However, further research is needed to determine the relationship between diabetes and long COVID-19.

The study is funded by Innovate UK, the United Kingdom’s innovation agency.
