COVID-19 Innovation Guide:

Returning to the Next Normal

Providence is uniquely positioned to share hard-wrought lessons learned from the COVID-19 frontlines. As the original ground zero in the U.S. outbreak, the health system was the first to be challenged by the pandemic — and innovated its way toward resuming care delivery in a manner trusted by both patients and employees. The key to their success? Unlocking the opportunities for digital across the business.

Based on this success, Providence and Health Evolution aligned to create this three-part series of Innovation Guides that CEOs can leverage to:

  1. Inform leading digital strategies for not simply surviving COVID-19 but emerging stronger post-pandemic
  2. Understand the digital innovation opportunities around safety and support contactless care
  3. Lay the foundation for establishing new care models that ensure a more sustainable future

“While some regions of the country may experience a backlog of care, early data indicates regions hit hardest by COVID-19 cases and economic fallout will be met with slow but consistent return. As health systems enter the recovery phase with depressed per capita utilization, they must take swift action in reducing capital expenditures, consolidating service lines and rationalizing physical assets where possible.” – Aaron Martin and Sara Vaezy of Providence 

Looking toward the future one thing is clear: Digital will be the backbone of health care.
