We are all feeling the impact of COVID-19 on our lives as well as on our professions. Medical imaging practices are similarly being impacted. Unfortunately, much of the affect of this disease will have long-standing implications that will linger far beyond the containment of COVID-19. In order to survive and perhaps even grow in the new reality, imaging practices will need to make drastic adjustments in how they operate.
More than two million COVID-19 cases have been recorded and more than 100,000 people have died in Latin America according to the European Centre for Disease Control and Prevention. When it comes to healthcare, workers continue to man the front lines and do their best to serve their patients.
When COVID-19 first struck, Purview sprang into action. We offered one of our products, software for remote diagnostic image viewing, free of charge for healthcare workers around the globe. But healthcare goes beyond traditional doctors and patients, and for Purview this also includes forensics and veterinarians.
In Latin America, two of the organizations that adopted Purview Image during the pandemic were Abanimal Imágenes Diagnósticas in Bogatá, Columbia and Instituto de Radiología in São Paulo, Brazil.

In the post-COVID-19 world, most hospitals will be scrambling to reclaim the revenue they missed during the pandemic. Certainly, a good portion of normal operational revenue will revive as patients become more comfortable returning to the hospital for non-emergency conditions and delayed procedures. But making up for the losses arising during the pandemic will be a daunting task.
