Italy has been one of the countries most affected by the SARS-CoV-2
pandemic, and the regional healthcare system has had to quickly adapt
its organization to meet the needs of infected patients. This has led
to a drastic change in the routine management of non-communicable
diseases with a potential long-term impact on patient health care.
Therefore, we investigated the management of non-COVID-19 patients
across all medical specialities in Italy.
