Webinar on June 30: Berkshire HealthCare Systems’ COVID-19 Journey – Getting to the Gold

June 30, 2020 @ 11:00 AM to 12:00 PM EDT

The COVID-19 pandemic created enormous pressure on our health care system. Nursing Homes, where over 85% of the residents are among the most vulnerable, were immediately impacted with several thousand residents confirmed positive in only a few weeks.

As of June 18th, Massachusetts reported over 106,422 confirmed cases and 7,770 deaths, over half of those (4,899) were in Long Term Care.

Although the initial surge appears to be lessening, experts are concerned about the potential of a resurgence in the fall. Now is the time to connect, share promising practices and help each other prepare for tomorrow.


Learn how Berkshire HealthCare Systems connected with the Massachusetts Department of Public Health and local experts, implemented emergency infection control practices, and collaborated within their communities to mitigate the risk for residents, family and staff.

Upon completion of this session, you’ll be able to:

  • Review effective COVID-response strategies, including collaboration with key partners
  • Evaluate specific efforts to manage infection control, PPE, communication, staffing and clinical care
  • Apply best practices in preparation for phased reopening and/or a resurgence of cases

Following the presentation, representatives from Massachusetts Department of Public Health will join our speakers in a facilitated panel discussion.
