Plans for SaaMD registration for CovidCare app as long COVID looms

Twenty-four clinics around Australia are now taking part in a clinical trial of the University of Melbourne's CovidCare app, a self-monitoring app that is aimed at people in isolation who are waiting for test results or have mild symptoms of COVID-19.

Plans are also afoot to apply to the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) for registration of the app as software as a medical device (SaaMD). There are also plans to use the app to help patients deal with “long COVID” – patients who continue to suffer COVID-related symptoms for weeks and months after infection – and in future with common chronic diseases.
