Leveraging the Power of Peer Learning to Tackle COVID-19

Reality has shifted for the Leading Health Systems, suppliers, and service providers amid the outbreak of COVID-19. Despite the immense challenges, The Academy has been flooded by offers to share valuable resources, pertinent experiences, and creative solutions for the benefit of our broader community. It is in this spirit that we decided to launch our COVID-19 Resource Center.

On this site, you’ll find the best of information on COVID-19 preparation, response, and recovery from governments, suppliers, and providers. All resources are carefully vetted, organized by critical topical domain, and free for use and redistribution. Additionally, you’ll find information on our member Townhalls—Academy hosted virtual conversations designed to facilitate real time sharing and problem solving.

We sincerely hope this resource can play a role in helping you and your teams lead through this unprecedented crisis. We are here to help.
