The COVID-19 outbreak caused by the coronavirus has had a profound impact on our healthcare delivery and support systems, our economy, safety and overall way of life. The U.S. healthcare system is still in the throes of COVID-19 mitigation and treatment. As hospitals and health systems look to open their doors to non-COVID patients, what happens to our healthcare delivery system? Healthcare has had to pivot and did in many cases in ways never thought possible. The question remains - do we or can we go back to the way things were?
In this one and a half hour panel, we will discuss how healthcare providers, payers, pharmacies and life sciences businesses have shifted in how they provide care and services and what will be the long-term impact for our healthcare systems.
