Infection Control and Clinical Care Resources for COVID-19

Published: March 12, 2020; Last Updated: May 11, 2020

Evolent continues to closely monitor the outbreak and spread of Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19). COVID-19 has been declared a national public health emergency by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), a global pandemic by the World Health Organization, and a national emergency under the Stafford Act. The health of the public, patients, physicians and other clinical and administrative staff is of the utmost importance. This Resource Center provides links to several key resources from federal agencies to support your efforts. We encourage you to frequently check these resources to ensure you have the most up-to-date guidance. You should also be aware of announcements, legal requirements and guidance issued by your state and locality, as they may vary.

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)

The CDC has developed a virtual Situation Room for regular updates on this global situation. Specific resources for health care professionals include:

Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)

Non-Emergent, Elective Medical Services and Treatment Recommendations

On April 6, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) updated its recommendations to postpone non-essential surgeries and other procedures to conserve critical health care resources and limit exposure of patients and staff to COVID-19. The recommendations were developed in collaboration with medical societies and associations.

CMS Partner Toolkit

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has issued specific guidance on COVID-19 screening, treatment and transfer procedures; limits on nursing home visitation, delaying elective procedures and re-opening facilities. These and other CMS resources are located in this CMS Partner Toolkit.
