Prioritizing Essential Care in the Wake of COVID-19: Best Practices & Strategies for Healthcare Systems – Webinar

May 21 @ 11:30 am - 12:00 pm

Event Navigation

As health systems emerge and recover from the COVID-19 surge, patients seeking non-emergent care and forms of elective procedures will begin to return to facilities, many in an acute state. Healthcare organizations need to assess how they will re-engage with their patients and reschedule appointments and procedures, in a timely way, while managing potential flare-ups of the coronavirus. Leveraging analytics, evaluating capacity management, and taking operational considerations into account will be imperative for healthcare organizations as they develop their strategy and approach to recovery and regaining lost revenues. Join expert faculty as they discuss these critical issues facing healthcare systems.
