About the Session

From rapidly enhancing telehealth infrastructure to developing innovative approaches to keep families connected and safe while their children are in the hospital, children’s hospitals have had to change their approaches exponentially over the past year. Despite this significant amount of evolution, many children’s hospitals have been among some of the most successful in maintaining essential patient care throughout what has otherwise been a year of significant fluctuation in care utilization. Join leaders from some of the top children’s hospitals as they share lessons learned from employing creative solutions to maintain stability in an ever-changing healthcare environment.

Learning Objectives:

  • Explore innovative approaches children’s hospitals have taken to adjust to the pandemic.
  • Identify strategies for maintaining stability in a fluctuating care utilization environment.
