We at Merit Medical are profoundly grateful for all that our healthcare partners are doing to support their patients and communities as we deal with the impact of COVID-19. Your efforts are truly heroic, delivering the highest quality, safe patient care during this challenging time.

We are taking every precaution possible to continue providing seamless and uninterrupted support. Our COVID-19 Operations Task Force is working around the clock to monitor developments and to respond appropriately to support our customers’ patient care and staff needs.

PHYSICIAN-TO-PHYSICIAN CONNECTIONS

Merit Café is an online, interactive forum connecting physicians across the county to share their experiences, challenges, best practices, and solutions with managing breast patients during COVID-19.

Vincent Reid, MD, Surgical Oncologist at Mercy’s Hall-Perrine Cancer Center in Cedar Rapids, Iowa was one of the first moderators of Merit Café and has joined us to discuss “The Impact of COVID-19 on Breast Cancer Management”. To read the full interview with Dr. Reid, click here.

CLINICAL CASE SUPPORT

Clinical case support is an integral part of our commitment to our SCOUT® and SAVI® customers. In this environment of restricted access, your Merit representatives are readily available to provide real-time case support via several easy-to-use platforms: Microsoft Teams, FaceTime or WhatsApp. We work closely with clinical teams to ensure a smooth and HIPAA compliant virtual support experience.

WEB-BASED LEARNING OPPORTUNITIES

Although in-person gatherings have been necessarily put on hold, we believe that learning opportunities for physicians should continue. As such, we will be hosting a series of webinars led by experienced physician faculty. These events will provide an opportunity to learn from and virtually connect with other physicians across the country around the latest in SCOUT Radar Localization and SAVI Brachytherapy.

CUSTOMER RESOURCES

We strive to ensure each customer is equipped with thorough and in-depth resources to support their use of SCOUT and SAVI technologies. Please contact your Account Executive for access to the SCOUT Customer Resource Portal, or any SAVI Brachy materials.

We at Merit are prepared to provide support and assistance through these trying times. If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to contact your local Account Executive or send an email.

Be assured that Merit is doing everything possible to ensure that healthcare providers and patients are supported as we navigate through this challenging time, together.
