To those working on the front lines, we applaud you and we will match your efforts
As the COVID-19 situation continues to unfold, I want to take a moment to pledge my support to those of you working on the front lines. I’m immensely grateful for the sacrifice you are making by putting your safety at risk to protect us all.
My promise to you is this: Here at Syft, we will match your efforts with our own. While our call to duty is significantly different from yours, we are here to support you. We will do everything in our power to ensure that your hospital supply chain is healthy, and that the right products are moving efficiently through your healthcare system so that patients receive the best possible care.
Right now, our inventory services team is in the field at hospitals across the country, assisting with critical and time-sensitive tasks such as counting inventory and getting PPE and other supplies to clinicians. We will continue to monitor the crisis carefully to find more and different ways to help—and to critically assess what we can learn from it. In the event we are faced with a second surge of coronavirus or other disease outbreak in the coming months or years, we want to ensure that your hospital is ready.
Please be assured that we will work tirelessly until this crisis is behind us. We are your partner, so please reach out if you have questions or need assistance.
