Healthcare during COVID-19 pandemic
Corona virus is a fun sized virus that has wiped out fun from each faces globally. It has a capacity to assemble inside the thickness of a sheet of paper. We can say that it is an invisible threat and it’s making vivid the shortcomings of our health care systems. For the first time in the decades, a health emergency has clean up the complete global economy and clearly gives suggestion about how inseparable our healthcare system and also the economy have become.
The COVID-19 pandemic has massively disrupted entire world. Besides direct devastation of health, the epidemic and therefore the lockdown have had myriad indirect effects, be it on the environment, livelihoods, or supply chains. There has been a plenty of debate round the lack of capacity of our health-care system to fight this pandemic. But the impact of COVID-19 and therefore the lockdown on the ‘business’ of health care has not been examined. This has a vital concerning on the larger arena of health take care of our citizens within the near future.
When health systems are overwhelmed, both direct mortality from a pestilence and indirect mortality from vaccine-preventable and treatable conditions increase dramatically. Countries will have to make difficult decisions to balance the strain of responding directly to COVID-19, while simultaneously engaging in strategic planning and coordinated action to maintain essential health service delivery, mitigating the chance of system collapse.
The COVID-19 pandemic has put some health systems under immense pressure and stretched others beyond their capacity. As such, responding to the present public health emergency and successfully minimizing its impact requires every health resource to be leveraged. Failure to shield health care during this rapidly changing context exposes health systems to critical gaps in services after they are most needed, and can have a long-lasting impact on the health and wellbeing of populations. The COVID-19 pandemic has created many challenges for health and care services worldwide and has led to the largest significant societal crises in last century. It’s also been a test for the maturity of digital health technologies, be it for frontline care, surveillance or discovery of recent strategies.
COVID-19 has led to a dramatic reduction within the numbers of patients seeking care. This is often very true of planned, non-urgent problems including procedures and surgeries. Many patients are scared to go health facilities fearing COVID-19. While this has caused significant loss, with the condition of some patients worsening or taking an unfortunate turn, there may indeed be those that have avoided interventions with none deleterious impact. In other words, they have been reserved of procedures for debatable indications. For instance, the massive number of women who undergo an unnecessary hysterectomy has reduced. The incidence of Caesarean sections is reported to have gone down. Similarly, procedures like coronary stents, knee replacements, anaplasty, or cosmetic surgery which reflect supplier-induced demand have almost stopped. Routine admissions for observation or insurance claims have grown curtailed.
