For the 35th episode of the Healthcare IT Podcast, we’re talking about What We’ll Need for the 2nd Wave of the Pandemic. The inspiration for this episode came from the following graphic that shared one perspective on the various “waves” healthcare will see during the coronavirus.
As our friends and colleagues brave the font lines, we must also get ready for a series of aftershocks. It’s very hard to plan this far ahead while we’re in survival mode. We must prepare early and strategize our response to the collateral damage of #COVID19 pic.twitter.com/YF7bif5PeK

As we think about the 2nd wave hitting healthcare, Colin and I make some predictions on what technology and solutions are going to be needed by healthcare organizations to deal with these changes.
Here’s a quick preview of the areas we discuss in this episode:
- Resource Optimization
- Workforce Management (Temporary + Permanent)
- Record Retrieval & Consolidation (One-Time Interop)
- Other Needs
