Radiology in times of COVID-19

How COVID-19 accelerated the transformation of healthcare

Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, medical imaging played an essential role in the diagnosis, management and surveillance of patients. But measures had to be taken to protect staff and patients. For healthcare providers this meant great stress, high uncertainty and the need to rapidly adapt to the new situation.

The COVID-19 pandemic acts as a catalyst for the transformation of care delivery and will accelerate the implementation and adoption of preventative measures, remote work and care, as well as the digitalization of healthcare.

Case Studies

In our Insights Series we explore emerging issues and offer ideas, analysis, and practical advice on how to deliver high-value care.

Remote work concepts and digitalization have seen a rapid rise since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic and that can especially support radiology. But the way of working has also generally seen major changes with the start of the pandemic, with many hospitals and practices having to adapt rapidly. These are just a few of the topics explored.
