Health systems’ guide to preparing for the return of elective surgeries and devising a strategy to realize higher revenues, lower readmissions, and greater patient throughput in the post-COVID-19 era
COVID-19 has challenged traditional healthcare delivery systems and methods globally. With the array of regulations addressing the public health crisis, the postponement of elective surgeries and other non-essential medical care by federal organizations came across as a major headline for health systems and patients alike to preserve the PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) kits for providers and other critical healthcare resources.
In this whitepaper, we look at the overall impact of delayed elective surgeries on health systems and patients. We take a look at the new focus areas for providers in the post-COVID new normal of limited contact care and understand how patient engagement would change with the return of elective surgeries. As hospitals are preparing to increase the number of procedures, we conclude with an overarching strategy that would allow health systems to realize greater revenues, lower readmissions, increase patient throughput and enhance their surgical outcomes in the current healthcare environment.
