New OpEd

An OpEd in October 29th Chicago Tribune.

Commentary: As new COVID-19 surge hits, Illinois hospitals must coordinate resources. https://www.chicagotribune.com/opinion/commentary/ct-opinion-coronavirus-pritzker-plan-illinois-hospitals-20201028-b4oodtzfajctdiwbgxqv5pkiby-story.html

“Illinois should develop an explicit plan to centrally organize patient admissions, including directing ambulances with critically ill patients to higher-level centers and transferring patients liberally when needed. Hospitals also should publicly share data on beds, equipment and staffing and share resources and personnel. These efforts will lead to a more efficient use of resources and alleviate existing COVID-19 disparities.”
