About this Episode

The Covid-19 pandemic has had a significant impact on patient volumes as hospitals have had to delay elective surgeries and some have even had to furlough staff. In this episode, Radio Advisory host Rachel (Rae) Woods talks to Anna Yakovenko, who leads best practices research on hospital strategic and operational challenges for the Advisory Board, about what hospitals can expect patient volumes to look like for the rest of 2020. You’ll hear Yakovenko talk about how the Covid-19 pandemic has already impacted patient volumes, how patient behavior has affected volume levels, and how close patient volumes might come to pre-Covid-19 levels this year.
