The coronavirus pandemic is already changing New Yorkers in ways that will far outlast the pandemic itself, for better and for worse. Eventually, this pandemic will end. But it will leave an indelible mark on the health care system both operationally and financially. We’ll be adapting to a new normal, not returning to the pre-coronavirus world we once knew.

Most organizations in New York have put in place a number of measures to fight the spread of the disease. Healthcare operations and revenue have been severely impacted during this crisis, leaving many healthcare leaders to play a role to protect workers, their families, and society at large while keeping their organizations financially sound. As we flatten the curve in New York, we are expected a gradual resumption of work activities. This is being done step-by-step. However, regardless of how and to what extent normal work activities resume, it is highly likely that some measures will remain in place for some time to avoid a steep increase in infection rates. Furthermore, it is also possible that an increase in infections at some point in the future will require the reintroduction of restrictive measures in certain settings. This Webinar will look to address:

  • What healthcare leaders are doing in unique positions to design preventive measures that ensure staff transition staff back to the workplace safely or work remotely to minimize exposure, as well as how they plan to cope with a high rate of absences.
  • Though insurers and the federal government have stepped in to cover coronavirus-related medical bills, what to expect from a slow economic recovery that will leave millions of people uninsured while their financial situation remains precarious. And what does that mean for Medicaid and institutional budgets absorbing the cost?
  • How do we start building up bigger, better stockpiles of the things we need in a pandemic, including masks and other protective gear for hospital workers?
