A return to stability: How to safeguard elective procedure volumes in 2021
Wednesday, February 17th, 2021 | 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm CT
The COVID-19 pandemic forced hospitals to make dramatic changes to who receives care and when. The crisis created a roller coaster of extreme capacity issues in both directions, with hospitals experiencing fluctuations between incredibly low patient volumes to overwhelming COVID-19 surges.
Amid all this, many patients canceled their nonurgent visits and elective procedures. These procedures represent a major source of funds for health systems. Join us for the first discussion in a series on the instability of elective procedures. We will discuss the volatility of 2020 and how we can use what we learned to be better prepared in 2021.
In this webinar, we will discuss:
- How nonurgent and elective procedures were affected in 2020
- Tactics to effectively manage the surgery backlog
- Successful strategies that hospitals implemented during the pandemic
