Washington, DC, March 25, 2020 –
The public health emergency caused by COVID-19 is affecting all of us on personal and professional levels. As a company whose mission is: Applying innovation so organizations can better help all people enjoy the highest attainable quality of life and optimal health, we are concerned that this crisis is especially devastating to marginalized communities where residents live with health inequities, poverty and a lack of access to clinics, hospitals and information. As we move forward as a company to promote the ongoing coordination and continuation of healthcare services by leveraging technology, we are committed to a focus on those most at need. In addition, we are committed to support those still working on the front lines to provide health care and services despite the risk.
Our Offices and Work Environment
To participate in the efforts to minimize the risk of the virus’ transmission and practice social distancing, we have taken steps to protect our team members and clients. We have temporary closed our DC office headquarters on March 16 and asked our team members to work remotely if their job permits. Our team members can still be reached via our established emails and cellphone numbers.
Our Work Continues
We are aware that the work that we do is critical to healthcare providers and others who work with those who are seeking care for COVID-19 and other healthcare issues. We are bringing our knowledge of Health IT and our compassion and expertise to help others leverage tools such as Telehealth and related technology to provide care with minimal interaction and risks for transmission.
Looking to the Future
Although this is a challenging time that faces our community and the world at large, we are particularly grateful to our heroes on the front line of this pandemic, to those who are out in the community helping the poor and the sick – doctors, nurses, first responders, public health professionals, social workers and all those who support the public during this public health emergency. As Martin Luther King Jr. stated, “We must accept finite disappointment, but we must never lose infinite hope.” We as a company continue to hope that this crisis will end soon, but in the meantime, we will continue to work hard at what we do best and assist in the fight to help those most affected during these difficult times.
