In this bonus episode of "Problem Solved," we play interviews with healthcare engineers from May 2020 who have insight about how health systems are managing and operating through the COVID-19 crisis. We first chat with Amanda Mewborn, vice president of facility planning and development at Navicent Health in Macon, Georgia, about her experience on the frontlines of patient care during the pandemic. We also speak with Ali Hobbs, a healthcare consultant with Catalyst, a Haskell Company and Aaron Kanne, executive director of implementation services at Care Logistics in Atlanta, about the Think Tank sessions sponsored by the Society for Health Systems throughout the spring. Listeners, you can also share your own experiences from within your industry about the impact of the coronavirus pandemic on the Crisis Resource Community on IISE Connect at: https://link.iise.org/crisis-response-connect
