Hospitals are often caught in a tug-of-war choosing between time-tested methods and the razor’s edge of new research when it comes to adopting new treatments, processes, and technology.

For healthcare providers, the pandemic has been a major disruption that led to in-office safety protocols and created a chilling effect as patients refrained from scheduling the care they needed. Medical practices across the country resorted to reducing their hours or temporarily shuttering their offices. For many in the healthcare business, the reduction in appointments and closures precipitated revenue shortfalls of as much as 50 percent.
