The coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) pandemic continues to spread, confronting healthcare professionals around the world with unprecedented clinical and operational challenges. As they struggle to deal with this extraordinary situation, at the same time they must also continue to care for other patients.

At Siemens Healthineers, we are aware of the urgency and complexity of the current situation, and we are working hard to provide the best possible support to healthcare providers at each stage of COVID-19 patient care: diagnosis, prognosis, therapy and follow-up.

We are stepping up as a partner to support healthcare systems helping them to deliver high-value care to patients and families.

We support you to provide the best possible care for patients
In the following overview we want to highlight parts of the portfolio from Siemens Healthineers that can support healthcare providers at each stage of COVID-19 patient care: diagnosis, prognosis, therapy and follow-up.

Clinical
Our medical imaging, laboratory diagnostics and point-of-care testing solutions can support physicians to make a prognosis about the severity of a COVID-19 case, help treat the patient, and assist in the follow-up to find out when the patient has recovered.

Operational
At the same time our digital health solutions, services and consulting can support healthcare providers in protecting healthcare workers and increasing healthcare delivery capacity. For example, our digital services enable medical personnel to operate systems regardless of their location and thus with a potentially lower risk of infection.
