May 19, 2020
The COVID-19 pandemic has shaken up every healthcare professional’s practice. Sudden changes like this can introduce additional risk, but ISMIE is here to help. We offer several tools and resources to help you and your practice anticipate and prevent risk issues even in turbulent times:
- In the early days of the pandemic, ISMIE developed a resource that covers numerous risk management considerations specific to COVID-19, and has updated it as the situation developed. Addressing a wide range of issues from planning patient care and telemedicine to office logistics and business continuity planning, this resource has important information for every practice or facility.
- Responding to a pandemic takes a heavy toll on front-line healthcare professionals, in addition to the many challenges they already face on a daily basis. ISMIE offers several resources to get help, as well as resilience strategies and other tools to manage stress and maintain wellness.
- ISMIE’s primary telemedicine resource has been completely revamped in light of the seismic changes in telemedicine that have come as a result of COVID-19. From choosing a platform and getting started to key risk management considerations, this tool offers a wealth of information to help keep your new or expanded telemedicine activities on the right track.
- This new resource outlines how to limit your risk when conducting screening tests and labs, including helpful tips about patient education, documentation, tracking and communication of results. As screening tests for COVID-19 become available, this resource will be a helpful tool for your practice.
