Healthy Conversations: COVID-19 Reset

October 16, 2020

Welcome to Healthy Conversations, an open discussion among healthcare professionals about the latest innovations, what we've learned on the front lines of the pandemic, and how our industry is changing in real time. There might not be a specific moment when we can hit the reset button and start to tackle systemic healthcare challenges with a clean slate, but smaller resets are already underway. Join us as we examine what a COVID-19 Reset looks like for doctors, nurses, and other healthcare professionals.

We spoke with Dr. Rushika Fernandopulle, founder and CEO of Iora Health, about how physicians have addressed the pandemic in their own practices and the changing perceptions around value based care. You can find Dr. Fernandopulle’s full interview in the accompanying podcast (below) episode.

As discussed earlier in this series, COVID-19 is causing us to rethink and readjust how we deliver care. Broader systemic change starts within individual systems. For insight into how CVS is changing its own systems, we spoke to Dr. Dan Knecht and Angie Meoli.

One of the most eye-opening impacts of COVID-19 has been the dramatic disparities highlighted in our healthcare system. Dr. Dela Taghipour and Dr. Nadia Abuelezam will discuss how we can collectively reimagine community healthcare to address those disparities.
