Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The COVID-19 pandemic has profoundly stressed national healthcare systems, revealing how vulnerable they could be and negatively affecting health, economy, politics, and social trust. 

Parallel to control of infection spread with preventive social measurements and a massive vaccine administration, it is paramount that health systems preserve their resilience in terms of guaranteeing primary care. Despite the emergency situation that COVID-19 has created, we must remember that other diseases do not take a step back because of the pandemic, and patients affected by severe and urgent conditions such as malignancies and traumas are penalized the most by interruptions to treatment. 

This Special Issue aims to identify the procedures and regulations enhancing the provision of health services. This new simplified healthcare approach is characterized by bureaucracy and economy unburdening methods, such as new techniques and procedures for precision medicine allowing rapid hospital admittance and discharge, telemedicine, and ambulatory focused medicine. 

Papers addressing these topics are invited for this Special Issue, especially those providing clear guidelines regarding the efficacy of new precision procedures for oncologic and trauma patients reducing invasive surgery and related hospitalization, allowing home care by telemedicine after surgery and healthcare on ambulatory bases. Primary care could be provided to patients even in a stressed health system. 

I look forward to receiving your contributions.
