Adjusting to the New Realities of Elective Procedure Care

Monday, August 22nd, 2022 | 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM CT

Explore the effects of the pandemic on health systems nationwide.

Among its many impacts, the COVID-19 pandemic caused a once-in-a-generation disruption to elective surgeries. While the backlog of these surgeries have been widely noted, this proprietary research study from Mercury Healthcare, which is now a part of WebMD Provider Services, illustrates the impact the pandemic had on overall patient and visit volume. It also uncovers trends from the analysis of 340 million visits at 56 health systems and medical treatments of 53 million patients across diverse geographies.

Additionally, this webinar will also address the current challenges the industry is facing in light of the pandemic today, and how this data can help shape the new reality of elective procedure care for patients, providers and healthcare organizations.

This session will provide:

  • A data-driven look at the effects of the pandemic on health systems nationwide
  • Tools on how to use these findings as a framework for the future of elective procedure care
