My company, Fluidity Health, offers care coordination platform for people sheltering in place. We see this pandemic as devastating for healthcare.
43,000 Healthcare workers lost their Jobs
A lot of the hospitals we work with are in trouble because of their inability to perform elective surgery.
They have few COVID patients, fewer emergency patients, and no way to pay the bills. Its estimated 12% of hospitals will close by year-end.
In March of this year alone, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, 43,000 healthcare workers lost their jobs.
The American Academy of Family Physicians estimates that by this upcoming June.
60,000 family medical practices will close or scale back, affecting 800,000 additional workers.
Money promised by the government has not been fully forthcoming.
From the beginning of the pandemic, it was clear that our healthcare infrastructure was shaky.
This will only make it worse.
