COVID-19 Latest Updates and Resources

Disaster Planning for the Medical Office

While you cannot prepare for every imaginable scenario, there are steps you can take when a disaster strikes to mitigate damage, keep employees safe, and ensure that your patients receive the care they need. In an effort to help all physicians and their practices prepare for the current and impending challenges with COVID-19, we have made our Disaster Planning Overview for the Medical Office resource publicly available.

In addition, click the following links to access Curi’s supporting pandemic checklists—including a Business Planning Checklist, a Checklist for Medical Offices & Clinics, and a Checklist for Individuals & Families—all modified from their original purpose as pandemic flu resources.

All Curi recommendations are based on current CDC criteria at the time of publication. CDC guidance for SARS-CoV-2 infection may, or may not, be adopted by state and local health departments to respond to rapidly changing local circumstances. Providers should always check with their local health department to see if the CDC’s guidance on any given topic has been modified (particularly if more restrictive) from the CDC’s recommended guidelines. Follow this link for contact information to your state/local health department. If local recommendations vary from those of the CDC, and you are unsure what recommendations to follow, then it is safer to follow the more restrictive guidelines/recommendations.
