The COVID-19 virus has rocked the healthcare industry, shifting the way care is delivered for years to come. The impact on practices and hospitals was immediate and CV service lines have had to rapidly adapt to a new environment. MedAxiom recently surveyed its members to gain insight into the initial impact of COVID-19 on CV organizations across the country. While the situation continues to unfold and the impact on practices will evolve, a new MedAxiom report provides data and insight into how CV organizations have adjusted to a new normal in a matter of weeks and what actions programs need to take now to ensure viability in the coming months.
“COVID-19 is proving to have far bigger impact than any of us could have imagined at the beginning,” notes the report. “Major shifts in delivery models, patient volumes, staffing and revenue are being seen by every single program across the nation. The good news about this pandemic situation is that the CV community has come together like never before to learn from each other, support each other, and advocate for resources and support. This is truly an example of transforming cardiovascular care, together.”
