Orthopaedics has been severely impacted with a moratorium on elective surgery and related issues, including but not limited to: cash flow, staff reductions, the management of non-acute pathology, the implementation of telemedicine and more. The clinical and economic ramifications present an existential threat to our orthopaedic practices and our ability to deliver medical services. AANA wants all practices to continue weathering this storm while preparing to resume patient care as the acute phase of this crisis passes.
We have assembled an amazing panel of AANA Leaders to discuss the transition back to office work, clinical activities and arthroscopic-related procedures. Regional differences and relative urgency for various clinical conditions will be discussed as well as new safety measures, changes in business models and more.
Please listen to learn how these leaders are preparing for the next phase in managing challenges due to this unprecedented outbreak.
