Transformational change: 4 predictions on how COVID-19 will affect spine and healthcare

April 13, 2020 / Written by Laura Dyrda

Across the nation, non-essential businesses have closed or transitioned to remote work while hospitals and surgical centers have canceled elective procedures to avoid further spreading the coronavirus and devote resources to treating COVID-19 patients.

The federal government is delivering billions to healthcare organizations to support those efforts, and the $2 trillion stimulus package has special provisions for small businesses, including ASCs. Congress is considering a second stimulus package that would include a big focus on funding healthcare organizations. The pandemic is transforming healthcare on every level and the agile organizations that keep quality care and patient experience top of mind will thrive.
