We are certainly living in uncharted times. The impacts of COVID-19 are being felt around the world as individuals, families, and businesses are adjusting to their new normal. There is so much uncertainty in these challenging times: most notably when and if life can return close to the way we knew it. What we’re navigating today is really challenging our ability to be agile, creative, and resilient in our professional and personal lives.
I am so proud of how Microsoft has responded to help the global communities we are part of and serve: making a version of Teams and Office 365 widely available for free to educational institutions and leveraging our supply chains to provide supplies for medical staff and deliver meals to those in need.
Our partner community makes me equally proud, as so many quickly adjusted to address the new challenges placed upon us. We are seeing such incredible transformation from long-standing partners, while also witnessing the rapid creation of new organizations and innovation designed to help our global citizens. I am inspired by all the creativity, tenacity, and community service our partners are demonstrating to help businesses and individuals navigate today’s realities.

There is an urgent need to enhance capacity and protect front-line healthcare workers with a cost-effective and scalable remote patient monitoring system.
