Survey results: May 30-June 10, 2020

The 10th edition of L.E.K. Consulting’s survey continues to track key areas of concern and actions U.S. hospitals are taking in response to the impact of COVID-19. This week’s survey includes questions surrounding elective/semi-elective procedures, the impact of COVID-19 on elective procedure treatment setting, hospitals’ currently planned strategic response post-COVID-19 and changes hospitals would like manufacturers to make post-COVID-19. We plan to administer the survey every week, with each edition of the survey offering a glimpse into hospital sentiment over time. 

Edition 10 reflects survey results for May 30-June 10, 2020. The sample size is approximately 100 hospital administrators and clinicians each week across a diverse set of U.S. hospitals. 

Stay tuned for future updates

We plan to poll hospital stakeholders again next week in order to provide an updated perspective on healthcare providers’ sentiment and 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 COVID-19 Insights Center. 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.
