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, which will continue as the curve flattens and we move toward recovery.

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 critical phases, the sessions will feature national and state experts to explore strategies and considerations for this new phase of the pandemic.

Additional sessions will be listed below -- access recordings of past sessions and register for upcoming sessions online.
