The unique challenges of the COVID-19 outbreak wreaked havoc as hospitals tried to contain the spread of the virus while treating infected patients. Staffing shortages, patient and caregiver contact and proximity limitations, and the lack of IT infrastructure in inpatient rooms made care extremely challenging.
Modeled after the SARS outbreak, the SPHCC contains special wards designed to limit cross infection and to provide more efficient treatments. It is designated as the primary treatment center in Shanghai and confirmed patients from area hospitals are also sent to the SPHCC for quarantine and treatment.
Vivalink worked closely with SPHCC to leverage its technology to address the challenges brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic.
