Concise has just shipped 50 iPads to Weill Cornell Medicine to help doctors and patients in NYC during the COVID-19 crisis.
We're encouraging others who have working smart devices to donate to local hospitals that may be in need.
Thanks to Dianne DiNardo owner at OneSource Worldwide Inc, a corporate meeting planning firm we partner with, for connecting us. Dianne posted on LinkedIn last week about Weill Cornell Hospital's need....
Dianne's post said: "They are now training all docs to be able to do ICU level care and vent management. Typically only ICU doctors (critical care docs and ER docs) do this but now b/c of maxed critical care docs, they are retraining other doctors. They are creating telemedicine where a doctor can use an ipad to consult a ICU doctor to help me manage the ventilation settings, etc. Also, we are having a lot of grieving patients who can not have visitors, providing iPads to them or their families to interact is immensely important. Any connections are welcomed as I have the contact at Weill Cornell Medicine ready to receive if you have the iPads!"
Arthur Evans, MD, MPH, Chief, Hospital Medicine at Weill Cornell Medicine wrote: "Thank you for all of your help! We also extend our greatest and highest gratitude for this amazing donation! Your iPads will not only help patients see their families, they will limit exposure, provide an opening for psychiatry services, preserve our PPEs, and allow additional services easy access to our patients."
Thanks also to our Concise team members – James Shepheard-Walwyn (Director), Jim Hughes (General Manager UK), Peter Engelbrecht (Head of Operations) and Fernando Dominguez (Operations Manager) – who organized, prepped and shipped the iPads.

With a crowded event space, sponsors are having to make tough decisions on where they spend their marketing dollars.
Meg Fasy, Principal, FazeFWD Sponsorship Marketing explains how if organizers don't have a strategy in place to help meet the marketing goals and objectives of their sponsors, they will soon see their revenue decrease.
