Capsule is working overtime with health systems and community agencies to deliver meds to the most vulnerable populations during COVID-19. They are also hiring furloughed NYC employees to help with this increased demand.

MDCalc has launched a free COVID-19 resource center and EHR-integrated COVID-19 Toolkit to help clinicians save time and make better decisions at the point of care.  Special thanks to their CEO Joseph Habboushe (who’s also an ER doc) for his tireless work on the frontlines. He was profiled this week in AP News.

LifeSci NYC Internship program is helping college and graduate students who want to pursue careers in healthcare. On behalf of NYCEDC, the program is continuing to place students into summer internships at dozens of NYC’s life sciences companies. Please consider hosting one, this is the future of our industry!

Twiage has developed a COVID-19 solution that sends custom alerts to hospitals, informing them of incoming ambulances carrying suspected COVID-19 patients. This gives hospitals time to prepare isolation in advance to protect staff. The solution has already helped 45 hospitals and 126 EMS agencies in 11 states.
