The Flex Monitoring Team (FMT) has released a new data report, Critical Access Hospitals’ Initial Response to COVID-19 by System Affiliation. This report presents data on the initial response to COVID-19 in system-affiliated and independent Critical Access Hospitals (CAHs). The data come from a survey of CAH CEOs in eight states about their response to COVID-19 from February to August 2020, and findings include information on COVID-19 case volume, personal protective equipment (PPE) supply, and the perceived impact of being a system-affiliated or independent CAH on their overall response to COVID-19.
Additional information on previous FMT publications related to COVID-19, as well as a recorded webinar from this study, are available on the FMT website.
