COVID-19 has had a massive impact on healthcare providers. Dire need has pushed many healthcare professionals to the limit to the point of affecting their own health.

Many have turned to intelligent automation technologies in an effort to do more with the limited resources that they have.

The pandemic highlighted and accelerated the already present need to optimize costs, decrease dependency on humans for routine and administrative tasks, and prepare for any similar future impacts.
