Navigate the COVID-19 climate with financial, staffing, and reopening resources for your practice
In an effort to provide more tangible tools and resources for network practices as they reopen, the VSP Global® Premier Program released the Roadmap to Reopening resource today as a supplement to last week’s Premier Program Reopening Resource Guide. Created based on doctors’ concerns about reopening safety protocols and procedures, the Roadmap Resource provides tips, suggestions, and best practices to protect the health and safety of doctors, patients, and staff.
As practices transition to reopen, the VSP Global® Premier Program is focused on delivering tangible tools and resources to make a practical difference for network practices navigating COVID-related changes, supporting a safer environment for staff and patients, creating more opportunities for patient engagement, and driving patient access. Our newest offering, the Premier Program Reopening Resource Guide, is a robust, online reference your practice can use immediately.
