Strain on health systems has been exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic, resulting in patient backlogs and driving the need for improved operational efficiency.
“It has been sobering to witness first-hand the immense pressures we are all feeling on our time and our resources, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic, but also inspiring to see so many innovative solutions, and to share those learnings in the hope of achieving better outcomes for patients and providers alike.”7
This can be achieved by avoiding repeat procedures, reducing the length of those that are carried out, and delivering cost savings while simultaneously maintaining – or improving – the standard of care.
