The Impact of COVID-19 on US Hospitals — Edition 3
Brought to you by L.E.K. Consulting’s MedTech and Healthcare Services practices
L.E.K. Consulting’s survey “COVID-19 Impact on U.S. Hospitals” tracks COVID-19’s impact on U.S. hospital staff morale and inpatient capacities, key areas of concern and actions taken to handle the outbreak. This week’s survey also includes new questions surrounding strategic and operational changes that hospitals expect to make post-COVID-19 and identification of key factors that will help guide facilities to resume elective procedures. The survey is planned to be administered every one to two weeks, with each edition of the survey offering a glimpse into hospital sentiment over time.
We plan to poll hospital stakeholders next week to get their perspective on the impact of COVID-19 on hospital operations. We will share our next bulletin with you via email, but feel free to also check our website (www.lek.com). We welcome your feedback on this topic and other topics for further discussion and evaluation in the weeks ahead.
Thank you, and please stay safe.
