We thought we'd put together advice for vendors on what hospitals are requiring - and for hospitals on what they ought to require from vendors - during the ongoing coronavirus crisis.
You can find some of that in our podcast episode this week, in which our VP of Operations - who's been coordinating with and within hospitals since the pandemic began - shares his observations about how hospital protocols have evolved and how hospitals' partners can come prepared for that first temperature check.
One thing vendors and providers alike will need to address are the mental health needs of basically everyone they encounter - especially in hospitals. The risk of emotional damage from this period of unrest is high.
We salute the clinicians who are relieving the physical and mental health burden placed on the Black Lives Matter movement -- through doctor and nurseshows of solidarity and the ongoing care they provide**.
