Safeguard and Support Your Community

Recover, Restore and Re-open


In just a few months, COVID-19 has reshaped our society. The pandemic has amplified health disparities and exposed significant challenges to accessing health care. COVID-19 has required health systems to prepare for unprecedented pandemic-related patient surges, and governments and employers have had to break down silos to establish new ways to achieve a common goal.

The R3 framework can help communities respond nimbly to these thorny challenges. At its heart lies the same thinking that drives Stanford Medicine’s commitment to Precision Health: Invest now in better ways to predict and prevent disease, lessening the need to cope later with complications. Similarly, communities need to act early and skillfully on a host of fronts to manage the repercussions of COVID-19.
