How We're Addressing the Pandemic
First, our thoughts and well-wishes go out to all who are impacted by the pandemic- directly or otherwise. These are scary and challenging times; please know that we are with you and we will get through this moment together.
We are closely monitoring information from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO), and state health departments. Responding to that information, we have closed our offices in Washington, DC and Minneapolis, MN, and our team is working remotely for the foreseeable future.
Our work will continue.
USofCare’s mission to ensure that everyone has access to quality, affordable health care regardless of health status, social need, or income has never been more important. However, our business as usual will change.
We will shift our resources to provide immediate support for state and federal government and public response needs, leveraging our expertise, capacity, network, and resources to support effective responses to the pandemic.
We will structure this work around several core areas, with more to be determined as circumstances dictate:
- Creating and scaling smart solutions. Creating policy menus and ideas for consideration at state, federal, and institutional levels. Sharing best practices, policies, messaging, and innovative approaches to scale quickly to other areas.
- Connecter. Bring people and solutions together to tackle hard problems. “Matchmaking” between supply (of expertise, models, or literal operational supplies) and demand (requests/needs from states, feds, stakeholders.)
- Amplify. Amplify and communicate public health needs/ directives to political and business leaders, and the public at large.
We will continue to monitor the situation, adjust our operations as needed, and keep you informed of any developments.
And we will overcome this. Together.
