“Preparing for the Second Wave: Strategies to Provide Care to Vulnerable Populations During the Pandemic”
Healthcare is known for its ever-changing environment. COVID-19 has tested healthcare in unprecedented ways and has created significant changes in how healthcare organizations will provide care, especially to vulnerable populations. Now is a critical time for organizations to review what has occurred in the last several months and incorporate lessons learned to provide better care for vulnerable populations.

The Connecticut Association of Healthcare Executives started this conversation at its 2020 Virtual Annual Meeting. A panel of healthcare leaders experienced in serving vulnerable populations shared best practices, lessons learned, and considerations that healthcare leaders ought to consider. On October 8, the panel will meet again to explore how healthcare organizations can proactively prepare to care for vulnerable populations during challenging times. 

Learning Objectives:
1. What are barriers to care for at -risk populations and strategies that organizations have implemented to overcome them.
2. How to engage with executive leadership to fund or put resources towards program re-design efforts.
3. How an organization can support employees who are first contact with a vulnerable patient to help make their access to care less challenging.

This program is complimentary to attend and will be valued at 1.0 hour of ACHE Qualified Education.
