The months ahead for health systems and medical practices are no longer about survival, but rather about optimizing for successful operations as pandemic recovery marches on.
Patients are returning for in-person visits and procedures after deferrals and delays; however, the other side of the care equation is not as certain as it was before COVID-19.
