Treating patients with COVID-19 is severely taxing the US health-care system and already there are few hospital beds available to patients.

A mobile app developed by an interdisciplinary team of faculty members at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, and the medical director of the Firefighters Burn Center in Memphis, Tennessee, will be used to meet recovery needs of newly discharged patients from the burn center and burn patients being treated as outpatients.

By using this mobile app, patients can receive the recovery guidance they require without the need of in-person consultation at overburdened medical facilities.
