HANYS Recovery and Preparedness Webinar Series: Leveraging the acute care health system to support long-term care during COVID-19

March 31, 2021

3 - 4 p.m.

Registration is open to HANYS Members and Non Members

This one-hour webinar will examine how Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine developed a model for supporting long-term care facilities during the COVID-19 pandemic.

This session will outline a multidisciplinary team approach to pairing hospitals with community long-term care facilities and discuss how this model was adopted and operationalized statewide.

Objectives: At the end of the presentation, participants will be able to:

  • understand key challenges facing long-term care facilities during the pandemic;
  • identify strategies for acute care facilities to address emergent needs of long-term care facilities; and
  • learn how to plan for long-term partnerships between acute care and long-term care to support patients.

HANYS Recovery and Preparedness Webinar Series
This webinar is part of the HANYS Recovery and Preparedness Webinar Series held on a 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. In both surge and recovery phases, 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” while battling the 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, the sessions will feature national and state experts to explore strategies and considerations for the critical phases of the pandemic.

Additional sessions are listed below— access recordings of past sessions and register for upcoming sessions online.
