WEBINAR: Forecasting the Industry Trajectory of Healthcare Systems During COVID-19
COVID 19 has emerged as a black swan event that continues to devastate, uproot, and reconstruct the healthcare industry as we collectively know it. With the onslaught of information, macro-based policy and process changes, and continued industry instability, each of us within the healthcare field are continuously asking, “What’s next”? However, in order to determine what comes next, it is pivotal that we collectively frame this experience within the context of the chapters and history that proceeded this international crisis. Prior to COVID 19, systems of care struggled to engage and accommodate vulnerable populations to include people living with HIV, people that use drugs, people affected by poverty, people with marginalized/ oppressed identities etc. Lack of historic expertise in these spaces and care modalities only stand to become magnified within the context of this health crisis. This webinar will frame out and forecast key challenges faced by healthcare organizations; institutional and policy-based dilemmas; the evolving roles played by technology and tele-health; and critical workforce dimensions. All of these elements will greatly factor into what’s next and what healthcare will look like now and in the future.
At the conclusion of this webinar, attendees will be able to:
Understand the baseline challenges inherent within the healthcare industry pre-COVID 19 and identify key areas of industry disruption resultant from the pandemic
Comprehend how technology and tele-health platforms are redefining systems of care and the provision of care
Recognize how patient vulnerability and challenges with access to care are magnified in the context of social distancing
Conceptualize the key industry, resource, and workforce challenges that will shape the healthcare industry moving forward
