HANYS Recovery and Preparedness Webinar Series: Configuring ICUs in the COVID-19 Era - Recording

August 19, 2020

3 - 4 p.m.

Registration is open to HANYS Members and Non Members

Description: Dr. Neil Halpern will review the recently released Society for Critical Care Medicines guidance on how to innovate your existing ICU or convert other spaces into an ICU to improve workflow, manage capacity and minimize staff exposure to COVID-19 based on the evolving experiences from more than a dozen hospitals and healthcare professionals on the front line.

Objectives: Participants will

  • understand new approaches for rapidly expanding ICU bed capacity;
  • appreciate the shift in ICU care models, both existing and novel, to protect bedside staff from an airborne contagion;
  • explore governing and managing techniques for novel ICUs to use while educating and integrating redeployed staff; and
  • determine if hospitals can rely on support from other providers during the next pandemic.


Neil Halpern, MD, director, Critical Care Center, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center

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:

August 17: Moving Telehealth and Digital Care Beyond

August 26: Patient Access to Health Information During COVID-19 — Emerging Innovations and Benefits
