8 Hospital Preparedness Lessons from Past Pandemics
Just as We Can Learn From the Art of Pandemics Past, so too can hospitals and healthcare organizations. The consensus is that given world overcrowding, global climate change and the high level of world travel, global pandemics aren't going away. So, what lessons do recent outbreaks such as Ebola in 2014 and SARS in 2003 offer and how might healthcare technology come to the rescue? Here are eight hospital preparedness lessons that come to mind.
