The COVID-19 pandemic has created challenges for everyone - especially healthcare providers.
We've adapted quickly to support you through these times, and we'll continue to do so as we discover the "next normal" together. While we know our support may need to continually evolve, we're here to meet your individual case needs now.
Patient Re-engagement Tools
To help you better understand the impact of COVID-19 on patient sentiment, we completed patient research, summarized findings in infographics, and developed messaging guides to help you re-engage with your patients.

For better or worse, COVID-19 has heightened awareness of health inequities that exist in the United States. Our health equity initiative, Close the Gap, has been working with providers for the past 15 years to address health disparities experienced by women and people of color. We can show you where the greatest disease prevalence exists for marginalized populations in your community and then help you connect with them by developing an outreach program your center / practice can implement.
Together, let's address health inequities.
We've deployed technology-enabled solutions to help you remotely with device setup, capital equipment maintenance, troubleshooting, and most importantly procedural support. We've also created tools to help you connect remotely with your patients. Examples include:
- A merged reality app that connect reps during procedures to deliver virtual case support
- A practice marketing and telehealth solution that helps connect doctors and patients
- A tool that enables healthcare providers to create videos of themselves and send them to patients - providing pre - and post-procedure information to reduce surgery cancellations and aid in better patient recovery.
Many of our comprehensive EDUCARE courses and recognized faculty are now accessible virtually. In addition, you can access webcasts and virtual roundtables on new topics including remote patient management, patient prioritization during COVID-19, and telehealth.
