How ID Care Supports Leads Local, State, and National Healthcare Organizations in the Fight Against Coronavirus

In the face of the COVID-19 pandemic, the infectious disease experts at ID Care have helped lead the defensive front in New Jersey and across the U.S. Although our country is treading through new territory, ID Care’s goals are still the same: to pioneer effective treatment and disease-prevention strategies and keep our population, including the most vulnerable, safe.

As the largest network of infectious disease specialists in NJ and the second largest in the U.S., many have looked to ID Care for leadership during this uncertain time. As always, we’ve provided that guidance, drawing on our experience as stewards for healthcare institutions across the nation to face the challenges posed by COVID-19 with confidence.

Our Pillars of Leadership

Now more than at any other time, the ID Care team is operating as a thought leader for local health organizations in the fight against COVID-19. We’re working hard to set a standard of care for our peers in healthcare during this trying time in many ways, including:

  • Infectious Disease Care

Our award-winning team is made up of experts who have pioneered several diagnostic, treatment, and preventative infectious disease efforts. When our patients have required treatment for conditions like Zika virus, MRSA, influenza, and more, we have kept up with and continue to stay on top of the latest medical advancements to provide them with the cutting-edge care that they deserve.

With the arrival of COVID-19, we have ramped up our efforts. Since patients and healthcare facilities alike have come to rely on our expertise, we are dedicating countless hours to researching the virus, developing treatment plans, and counseling patients and providers alike about what they can do to keep themselves and the general public safe.

  • Healthcare Facility Affiliations

When it comes to fighting infectious diseases, we are all in it together. That’s why our services extend beyond patients. To safeguard our community, we also offer hospital affiliations and practitioner appointments, where we teach healthcare providers how to achieve the highest level of treatment success while assuring employee/staff safety.

We are similarly working with each of our healthcare partners locally and across the country, including health systems, hospitals, acute care facilities, long-term care facilities, urgent care clinics, surgical centers, and physician practices amid the COVID-19 outbreak. These partners include:

Using Teamwork to Fight COVID-19

The fight against COVID-19 isn’t just for healthcare providers. We can all do our part to stop the spread of the coronavirus by staying at home whenever possible to minimize person-to-person contact. Yet to handle an ever-increasing caseload, healthcare providers must work together to deliver evidence-based, up-to-date care.
