As with most organizations during COVID-19 surge planning, Providence St. Joseph Health realized they would have a shortage of ventilators and looked for an alternative. They began an initiative to convert anesthesia machines to ventilators and worked with their supplier partner to secure the necessary products for the conversion. The Providence St. Joseph team and Medline discuss how their collaboration began, solution sharing and outcomes. Session takeaways include leading practices, lessons learned and how your organization can create successful partnerships to combat the COVID-19 pandemic.
