COVID-19 Healthcare Delivery Impacts   [open pdf - 150KB]

From the Document: "The COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] pandemic and the associated community mitigation efforts enacted have altered the delivery of and access to healthcare across the U.S. For example, emergency department (ED) visits are down by an estimated 40% in many communities across the country; many in-person office visits have been either postponed or changed to telehealth visits; elective procedures have been postponed indefinitely; and other forms of healthcare delivery have been changed to accommodate social distancing and community mitigation measures. Community mitigation actions, often driven by government orders and mandates, may lead to a change in demand for traditional healthcare services. This tip sheet can help healthcare system planners prepare to mitigate these potential healthcare delivery impacts."
