Abstract

FROM THE EDITOR Emerging from the Pandemic: Are You a Butterfly or a Grizzly Bear? Or a Bit of Both? We are waking up from what has felt like not always operate as a system. The US health suspended animation—“a state of temporary care system is a conglomerate of independent inactivity,” “inertia,” “a holding pattern.” As more entities often functioning in silos, resulting in people are vaccinated for COVID-19 and cases errors, gaps in care, duplication of services, and continue to drop, we are emerging as if butterflies often poor outcomes. And few standards exist for from a cocoon. the collecting and sharing of information across . . . Or do you feel more like a grizzly bear that’s entities. This can result in decisions that may lead been in hibernation for a year, now starving and to misdiagnosis, unsafe or less than adequate maybe a bit leery. treatment, and redundancies or gaps in care. And There are clearly some things I want to return all of this imploded during the pandemic as our TERESA PEARSON, MS, RN, to “normal.” I want the now 1-year-old triplets to leaders tried to figure out how to create a strategy CDCES, FADCES
