How COVID-19 is Changing the Virtual Health care Culture: Access, Experience, and Financial Incentives

Monday, November 9, 2020
1-2:30 p.m. 

Decades prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, health care systems around the globe were actively engaged in thoughtful design, refinement, and implementation of smart solutions to address patient flow, access to quality care, and operational management. While many innovative solutions were in place or previously proposed at various levels in health care administration and delivery, the pandemic forced patients, providers, and payers to shift to virtual health applications seemly overnight. Our expert panelists working in the field will discuss the far-reaching effects that COVID-19 has had on virtual health care culture—including lessons learned—to provide a framework for solutions addressing access, experience, and financial sustainability.
