Utilizing Downtimes

As outpatient facilities, emergency rooms, urgent care services and hospitals continue to operate on the front lines of the coronavirus pandemic, other specialty healthcare offices lay dormant due to stay-at-home orders. Elective surgeries and services have been placed on hold to minimize healthcare traffic and mitigate the spread of COVID-19.

During this unplanned downtime, you can improve your internal operations and patient care plans by streamlining organizational changes before you reopen.
