Experts in the fields of allergy, cardiology, emergency and critical care, radiology and imaging, and rheumatology shared their experiences to address key questions including how continuum of care and throughput had been affected by the pandemic, what new guidelines and protocols had been adopted to protect patients and clinicians, and how new and existing technologies had been employed or adopted during this time.
