The Covid-19 pandemic has shown that telemedicine is a viable – and sometimes even a preferred – option for providing patient care. Its continued success, however, is going to require some work, says CIO Michael Saad.
For Jamie Nelson’s team at the Hospital for Special Surgery, the most important takeaway from the Covid-19 pandemic has been the need for a playbook documenting “what we did and how we did it,” she said in this podcast interview.
Tasks like getting patches deployed and securely onboarding new teams members have become even more challenging since Covid-19 hit. But with the right processes and the right culture, they can be accomplished, says CISO Dan Bowden.
When it comes to telehealth is that the industry has grown by “leaps and bounds” since early 2020. But if the momentum is to continue, there’s still a lot of “critical work” that needs to be done, according to Joseph Kvedar, MD.
With Covid-19 testing volumes and positivity rates going up and down (and back up again), leaders are trying to make sense of the data and find the right strategy to get them trending in the right direction, says CMIO CT Lin.
