The COVID-19 pandemic has tested the resources and facilities of health systems around the globe. With social distancing encouraged, providers and patients who were once reluctant to try telemedicine are discovering the convenience of the technology.
Infectious Disease Connect (ID Connect), an Enterprises spin-out company delivering infectious disease expertise via telemedicine, is aiding strained hospitals with stepped up consultation services.
The company, which was created in the spring of 2019 as a response to the national shortage of infectious disease specialists, is supporting its customers with full levels of service. ID Connect’s specialists also are meeting an emergent, immediate need by providing ID-specific and infection prevention and control telephonic consultations to as many additional hospitals as possible.
As COVID-19 continues to strain hospital resources and staff, ID Connect recently established a 24/7 call center to provide ID expertise whenever needed.
The national shortage of ID specialists has created difficulty for many community and rural hospitals and health care facilities in recruiting and retaining physicians with ID expertise. In addition, many hospitals don’t have the need for a full-time ID specialist. ID Connect fills this gap by providing these facilities with world-class, academic ID expertise through an end-to-end telemedicine solution.
“ID Connect team is steadfast in their commitment to providing the best telemedicine solution within the constraints of the current pandemic climate and is working diligently to do their part in combating COVID-19,” said David Zynn, CEO of ID Connect.

Building a great agile program is hard and an ever-evolving activity. It’s complex and requires system-level thinking with an intuitive understanding of engineering tradeoffs, bottlenecks, and flow dynamics. Much like a racecar driver, one cannot expect a driver to understand and be consciously aware of every detail happening in his car while he is racing down the track.
