COVID-19 UPDATE FROM MEDCHI
January 27, 2020
Dear MedChi Members and Maryland Physicians:

It's the last Wednesday of January, and we have a lot to share with you today:

UPCOMING VIRTUAL EVENTS





  • The American Medical Association is part of COVID Collaborative, a national assembly that has brought together leading organizations in health, education, and the economy to tackle the COVID-19 crisis. On February 9 from 12:00 - 1:00 pm EST, COVID Collaborative is hosting a Fireside Chat with Dr. Anthony Fauci, and you are invited and encouraged to attend. 



NEWS & INFORMATION

  • MedChi has recently joined a national group buying program founded by the South Carolina Medical Society that allows our members to purchase PPE at a discounted rate.  The list of supplies includes Honeywell H910 Plus N95 Respirators, gloves, gowns, face shields, and hand sanitizer.  Click here and use the discount code MEDCHI-SAVE5 to get the member discount.

  • The Maryland Department of Health is actively encouraging physicians and patients to consider monoclonal antibody treatment, which has been shown to reduce the severity of symptoms and prevent hospitalization in people with mild or moderate symptoms of COVID-19. A new online referral portal through CRISP, the state’s electronic health information exchange, will allow physicians to more efficiently refer COVID-19 patients for monoclonal antibody treatment at several locations throughout Maryland.




YOUR INPUT IS NEEDED

We are your advocate and your resource, and we're here for anything you need. Please don't hesitate to reach out.

Thank you for all that you do as physicians, healers, and heroes.
