As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to cripple the economy and tax our healthcare system, the U.S. is on the brink of another health crisis. This time, it’s psychological trauma.
As part of HMC’s ongoing research effort to better understand the longterm effects of COVID-19 and develop solutions for our healthcare system, we are exploring the pandemic as an opportunity to learn, reinvent, and most importantly help our clients amid the crisis, and their financial hardship.
HMC is committed to sharing our findings with the industry in a series of white papers that focus on five main areas of Technology, Adaptability and Flexibility, Regulatory/Budgetary/Institutional Impacts, Space Needs Restructuring, and Impact to Wellness/Mental Health. In this paper, we focus on the impact to wellness and mental health as it relates to the healthcare sector.
