The C19Checker severity stratification tool allows for the mass screening of individuals exhibiting COVID-19-like symptoms in a non-hospital setting. The screen builds on the previous SORT algorithm developed at Emory, which relies on the CDC-developed CRB-65 risk stratification tool, a well-validated technique that includes assessment of the severity and potential risk of death due to a community acquired illness as well as a brief review of factors related to co-morbidity. The risk assessment screening tool developed at Emory University can be administered online and allows for effective screening of large numbers of individuals, while alleviating the surge of visits to a hospital or doctors’ office and lessening interactions with infected individuals within these settings.
