When COVID-19 infiltrates our facilities, a one shoe fits all approach is not an effective strategy; we need to hone in on the highest risk residents and ensure that we focus resources where it can have the best possible outcome for all our at-risk residents. Operationalizing COVID-19 Propensity Scores based on crowd-sourced national data enable facility leadership to approach these challenges in a way that enables infection control to be targeted and effective. This presentation will also touch on an issue endemic to our industry during the pandemic: managing resident care amidst staffing and supply shortages. Finally, attendees will benefit from a look towards the future, with comments on the state and progression of viable vaccine options.
