Recovery or Disability? Trajectories After Pneumonia: Integrating 12 Months of Frequent Patient-Reported Measures with EMR Data

This is a pilot study to determine the feasibility of conducting a prospective study that aims to characterize longitudinal trajectories among patients with pneumonia. To achieve this goal, we will attempt to enroll 150 pneumonia patients at the time of hospital discharge, with a goal of retaining 100. Enrolled patients will be interviewed in the hospital, within 1 week of hospital discharge, and then again at 1.5, 3, and 4.5 months post-discharge. Our long-term objectives are to characterize post-discharge trajectories, with special emphasis on the impact of rehospitalization on a patient’s subsequent trajectory. The co-principal investigator will be Theodore Iwashyna, MD, PhD, of the University of Michigan.
