Over the course of 2020, the world has radically changed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Healthcare providers and support staff have been faced with enormous challenges like quickly pivoting to telehealth platforms, providing ongoing patient outreach, and determining how to implement enhanced infection prevention and control strategies within healthcare settings.

During these months, MedPro has been dedicated to helping healthcare professionals navigate this unprecedented situation. Our Patient Safety & Risk Solutions Team has handled thousands of questions from MedPro policyholders regarding coverage, treatment, regulatory guidelines, testing, and standards of care.

Now, as states navigate various phases of reopening and daily life slowly resumes some of its typical patterns, we remain committed to guiding healthcare providers and staff through the process of restarting their practices and proceeding with patient care and services.

The strategy that each healthcare organization choses to implement will vary depending on the type of facility, its patient population, and the impact that the COVID-19 pandemic has had on its operations. Although no “one-size-fits-all” approach will cover every scenario, MedPro has created a checklist to help healthcare practices prepare for post-COVID-19 operations. We hope this tool offers you a valuable roadmap for re-establishing operations, reducing risk, and safeguarding your patients and staff.

For additional tools and resources, including patient advisory and acknowledgment forms, risk resources, and wellness resources, please visit our COVID-19 website.
