Adapting to COVID-19: One Story and A Few Lessons

Course description

Time:12 - 1 p.m.

Every practice, and certainly every clinician, has their own story and experiences managing life in the era of COVID-19. In this session you will hear the story of one academic health system’s journey from pre-pandemic planning, to a surge of patients, to a massive pivot, and finally to efforts around recovery. Throughout these transitions, they were able to leverage tools like telehealth, identify opportunities in the face of adversity, and develop predictions and preparations for the future. 

Join us as Michael Hanak, MD, discusses Rush University Medical Center’s story and shares strategies that helped them to provide optimal care in challenging circumstances, while remaining flexible during times of uncertainty and rapid change.
