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.
