To meet the challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic, healthcare leaders were required to adapt many aspects of healthcare delivery. These changes, accelerated by the pandemic and now driven by consumerism, offer a unique opportunity to increase the efficiency of healthcare by repurposing pandemic-era adaptions. In this session, attendees will discover a ground-up approach to creating flexible hospital spaces and more efficient health systems. Innovations including the expansion of telehealth, drive-through centers, and remote patient monitoring will be explored.
