Hacking Coronavirus Repository

Revised sources for the Clinical Engineering professionals that are fighting the COVID-19 pandemic.

HC Initiative

In March 2019, a group of CE and Marketing experts gathered to challenge two complimentary problems that the COVID-19 pandemic had brought to healthcare professionals; the excess overflow of information related to the pandemic and the credibility of these sources. Supported by the IFMBE Clinical Engineering Division, the Hacking Coronavirus initiative has been supporting over 10,000 Clinical Engineers and Healthcare professionals with a daily weekday email newsletter that contains valuable citations gathered and revised by a team of experts.

In this section of the website, we host all the materials that have been published in our newsletters; we hope you enjoy it and that its useful for both you and your team.

Stay safe!
