BrandPost: How Cloud-Based Services are Helping Maintain Critical Care and Connectivity in the ‘New Normal’
France and Italy were two of the early coronavirus epicenters, but thanks to aggressive containment measures, both countries have flattened the curve. Technology providers stepped up in a variety of ways to support government and healthcare officials in their efforts to mitigate the spread of the virus, delivering cloud-based solutions to improve collaboration, maintain patient care, and relieve overworked staff.
For example, the rapid growth in cases in France created an urgent need for emergency management personnel to identify people who had potentially been infected with COVID-19 and match them with available resources. Equipment was in short supply and many healthcare professionals were isolated at home, so a cloud-based solution was needed to provide the fastest possible results.
