COVID-19 presents a revolutionary time in the post-acute landscape with both professional and personal interactions greatly impacted. Long-term care facility populations have been significantly affected leading to financial, clinical, and administrative burdens that influence both present and future care. New pressures are forcing long-term care organizations to reassess how they collaborate and share information between their staff, patients, families, and other providers. The challenge of delivering high-quality care amid social distancing and reduced staffing is compounded with the increased risk of penalties for readmissions. Embracing new technologies and best practices that facilitate care coordination and virtual care is a must.
