Jake Lancaster is the Chief Medical Information Officer at Baptist Memorial Health Care. He is interested in how technology can be used to improve the quality of our health care system by improving the experience for both clinicians and patients.
We have ventilators, extra staff and extra capacity plans and processes in place. We have our PPE supply chain in place. We have our telemedicine solutions in place. We don't have to reinvent any of it. We just have to turn it back on.
We have surge capacity plans that are in place. We had planned for close to 9 or 10 times the COVID-19 numbers we're seeing now. We're going to keep watching the data daily and what is happening in our state and at local levels and then we can go back to contingency planning and extra staffing plans if we need to.
