As hospital and health system leaders grapple with the immediate implications of COVID-19, they also need to determine how and when to bring back currently idled services and prepare for the “new normal” of the post-surge environment.
This concise e-book takes readers through a process of scenario modeling for how the pandemic’s impact might continue well after the surge. Four scenarios are used:
- Optimistic: A quick recovery
- Pessimistic: A long slog
- Second Wave: Secondary surges
- New Normal: Seasonal surges
Mapping these scenarios to hospital demand is a foundation for planning for financial recovery and future strategic options.
