Healthcare leaders from across the state have relied on ICSI to prepare innovative responses to the pandemic’s many challenges.
COVID-19 Vaccine FAQ
Starting in the summer of 2020, the ICSI Immunizations Working Group shared and accelerated good practices for getting immunizations up to date, as well as planning how to mobilize and create community infrastructure for COVID-19 vaccine distribution. The group was comprised of healthcare leaders across Minnesota from healthcare delivery systems, health plans, county and state agencies, and others.
Supported by ICSI’s evidence review team, the Immunization Working Group curated an FAQ which many organizations used as their go-to source for the latest information on the COVID-19 vaccinations. Starting December 21, 2021, our Vaccine FAQ is no longer being updated. For current information on COVID-19 vaccines please visit CDC.gov here.
Mental Health Support for the Healthcare Workforce
Just after the full force of the pandemic hit in March of 2020, our mental health leaders came together to ramp up support for the mental health needs of the healthcare workforce. We quickly curated and shared valuable resources with the entire group and developed a Supporting the Mental Health of Healthcare Workers Playbook to help health systems determine how to focus their efforts. Since then we’ve produced a series of interactive webinars to spread innovation and best practices, providing examples from Minnesota, the upper Midwest, and from across the United States.
