COVID-19 Impact: FOUR Clinical Challenges Addressed by the Rothman Index


These are some unprecedented times, requiring new skills, tools and ways of thinking. Some of the challenges we are all experiencing included: Untold loss of life and health, unimagined stress and sacrifice for health care providers (HCP), and economic uncertainty.

What does your current COVID environment look like in the clinical setting?
Are you dealing with challenges around:

  • Burnout

In today’s healthcare environment, clinicians are inevitably being asked to do more with less. How can you put patient data to work for your organization and prevent deteriorating patients from slipping through the cracks? During this webinar we will talk about the use of clinical decision support and how a platform like the Rothman Index can act as a safety net for your organization.


  • Discuss current clinical challenges presented by COVID-19
  • Explain how the Rothman Index, a universal score of patient acuity, can create a common clinical language around COVID patient risk
  • Highlight recent research and proposed clinical workflows to risk stratify COVID-19 patients
