Conversation with Harvard Professor Michael Chernew and Star Tribune healthcare reporter Chris Snowbeck about the health care innovations that have come from the COVID-19 pandemic
As we emerge from COVID-19’s dark shadow, the pandemic is serving as a broad catalyst for change in consumer expectations and a reordering of work, business and the economy. The US health care system sits at the center of COVID’s reckoning and newly added urgency for lasting change. Inequities in access to care and the enormous challenges in caring for the persistently ill are top priorities as government and stakeholders explore the public health “lessons learned”.
Join a discussion with Professor Michael Chernew, Harvard Medical School and Star Tribune reporter Chris Snowbeck, to explore how COVID can catalyze innovation to pay for the expanded medical care with fresh thinking about restraining the cost of treatment that supplies little or no value.
