The 2020 Q2 Advis Newsletter is now available. In this issue, readers will see that Advis remains at the forefront of all COVID-19 updates and regulatory changes. We surmise what is to come for American healthcare. Temporary flexibilities and regulatory changes abound, and we outline what is likely to persist into the new world of post-pandemic healthcare. The benefits of telemedicine have never been more apparent. We summarize how important this channel of medical care will continue to be. On a lighter note, we show off all of the Advis pets. They have kept our spirits high and in good company throughout the quarantine. And we discuss as well the Million Mask MOVEment initiative; it began with Advis in an effort to provide our clients and nationwide providers with personal protective equipment.
The past quarter has been a time for heart-felt gratitude and deep reflection. Let’s start with a simple thank you to all of our healthcare heroes. Our team at Advis cannot begin to express the gratitude we have for all of our clients and providers working on the frontlines against COVID-19. Throughout the country our clients and colleagues have reaffirmed their commitment to stand against systemic racism. Our healthcare institutions are evolving. It has been a distinct honor to assist your administrative teams during these challenging times.
Yet even as we celebrate healthcare workers everywhere, we must also mourn the victims. Scenes from the pandemic offer dramatic testimony to the importance of the social determinants of health. Well over 100,000 dead and counting- the elderly, the poor, people of color, people with co-morbidities, and our own frontline healthcare workers. Our healthcare system must address systemic racism, poverty, homelessness, unemployment and violence as well. Our country’s blatant disregard of the need for meaningful reforms that serve all people can no longer be tolerated. Our inadequate social organization costs too much money and way too many lives. Healthcare providers must be vigilant to ensure that social determinants of health are addressed in a substantive way.
As our country continues to endure the effects of the pandemic, racism, poverty, and gross inequality, the Advis team’s performance remains strong. The support we have given our clients navigating crisis response has been truly impressive. Despite the strain and the challenges, the experts at Advis have continually exemplified the values we stand for by putting clients first by providing cutting-edge solutions to every pressing business and regulatory need imaginable.
So, here’s to all the everyday heroes. People who work tirelessly to keep our country strong and safe and healthy. We’re about to enter a new world of healthcare. Hopefully it is a world where we are prepared and equipped for the medical, financial and social challenges ahead. We know we will be here to help. Enjoy our newsletter: 2020-Q2-Newsletter
