What We’ll Need for the 2nd Wave of the Pandemic – Healthcare IT Today Podcast Episode 35

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 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

Today’s episode is sponsored by HP, the leader in the world’s most secure and manageable PCs. Learn more about HP’s Healthcare Edition products at hp.com/go/healthcare/us, and be sure to follow the company on Twitter @HP.

Now, without further ado, we’re excited to share with you the next episode of the Healthcare IT Today podcast.
