Checklist: Postponed & Elective Case Recovery

Chris Cornue, Senior Advisor, AVIA

Health systems have experienced dramatic declines in revenue during the COVID-19 crisis as they have been forced to delay care, as they prepare for and respond to the COVID-19 pandemic. To sustainably carry out their missions, they must quickly and safely restart elective and postponed cases while addressing patient and clinician needs.

Operational, strategic, and clinical leaders can use this checklist to create an informed approach to restarting postponed and elective cases. It is organized into four phases, from the decision to proceed to post-case imperatives, with actionable steps to begin today.
