HANYS Recovery and Preparedness Webinar Series: COVID-19 Care Collaborative — Sharing Lessons Learned to Prepare for the Future - Recording

July 20, 2020

3 - 4 p.m.

Registration is open to HANYS Members and Non Members

The outbreak of COVID-19 posed unprecedented clinical and operational challenges for the hospitals on the front lines of the first wave. These include high patient census and acuity, the uncertain nature and prognosis of the disease, increased communication needs related to visitor restrictions, resource shortages, the need to train and support redeployed clinicians and the demand for expanded palliative care services. In the pandemic's epicenter of New York City, Weill Cornell Medical Center addressed these issues in innovative ways.

In this session, you will hear about lessons learned from the crisis response efforts at Weill Cornell and how this experience and knowledge can be harnessed, both to help those who are now facing their first surge of COVID-19 cases, and to better prepare for the next wave.


  • review the COVID-19 first wave and response at Weill Cornell;
  • identify core areas of COVID-19 crisis preparation; and
  • discuss the future direction of a collaborative consortium created to efficiently disseminate COVID-19 clinical and operational expertise.

Annie Kim, MD, Assistant Professor of Medicine, Weill Cornell Medicine

HANYS Recovery and Preparedness Webinar Series
This webinar is part of the HANYS Recovery and Preparedness Webinar Series held every Wednesday at 3 p.m. Additional sessions will take place as needed on Mondays at the same time.

The COVID-19 pandemic has forced healthcare organizations and providers to navigate unprecedented operational and clinical challenges, which will continue as the curve flattens and we move toward recovery.

In the recovery phase, healthcare organizations and providers need to re-evaluate their operations and plans for delivering care in a post-pandemic world. As they plan for the “new normal” and a potential second surge of COVID-19, healthcare leaders must consider their use of telemedicine, infection prevention and control practices, supply chain management and infrastructure changes. To assist with planning for the recovery phase, the sessions will feature national and state experts to explore strategies and considerations for this new phase of the pandemic. Additional sessions are listed below:

July 22: Improving Experience of Families who Lost Their Loved Ones in the ICU Before and During Covid-19 Pandemic

July 27: A Trauma-informed Behavioral Health Care Approach to Advance Health Equity

July 29: Coastal Storm Evacuation Planning

August 17: Moving Telehealth and Digital Care Beyond
