Hospitals and Health Systems Post-Pandemic, and How to Prepare for Future Outbreaks
To prepare effectively for future pandemics or emergencies, health systems need to be strong and responsive to the health needs of their local populations; they need to be resilient and nurture resilience in populations, as well.
Digital health solutions have been offering improvements in healthcare delivery in varying degrees and momentums worldwide – expanded access to care options reduced demands on facilities, reduction in healthcare costs, better quality of care through efficient allocation of resources, and improved patient experiences.
Digital technologies also have a key role to play across the continuum of care with blended applications and support across pre-acute, acute, and post-acute care. One example of this is telehealth. It is patient-centric technology that has served as a critical tool in COVID response and will continue to play a substantive role in healthcare transformation.
