Health Systems’ Partnerships with Public Health for Disaster Response
Community collaboration offers unique opportunities

The COVID-19 pandemic has challenged health care delivery systems world-wide by straining scarce resources, such as critical care therapeutics, hospital beds and clinical staff, necessitating drastic public health measures. Cross-institutional collaborations within communities offer unique opportunities to prevent or mitigate health disparities in resource utilization and access to care. In this session, San Francisco Department of Public Health will present on their collaboration with health systems that allowed them to do just that.
