How Mobile Apps Can Help Hospitals and ASCs Ramp Up Elective Procedures

When: Wednesday, September 23, 2020
Time: 2:00 pm ET


With elective surgeries comprising 60% of hospital revenues, hospitals and ASCs must proceed slowly with the resumption of elective procedures as several cities, regions and states see a rebound in COVID-19 cases. No hospital has been immune to the financial crunch of canceled surgeries and higher labor and equipment costs to treat infected patients, so getting the recovery right is critical.

In this Answers Media Network webinar event, MobileSmith Health’s (@TheMobileSmith) Bruce Kennedy and South Shore Health System’s (@southshorehosp) Luke Poppish will examine how mobile apps can be part of that recovery effort, to screen patients and employees for potential coronavirus risk while used as effective communication tools to encourage patients to return to hospitals for routine screening and to help patients adequately prepare for procedures to reduce cancellation rates.
