Telemedicine & Innovation: Seizing the Moment to Transform Healthcare
Wednesday, December 9, 2020 | 8:30 - 11:30 a.m. | Virtual Conference

COVID-19 ushered in a virtual care revolution. Almost instantly, the landscape of healthcare as we knew it was fundamentally transformed. The question now is, what's next? How do we take lessons from the pandemic to improve the future of healthcare? How do we ensure gains in telemedicine are not only sustained but advanced to new frontiers in virtual care? And finally, how do other technologies and innovations help propel care? Telemedicine & Innovation will be a discussion of the most pressing issues facing our healthcare system today, and how we can advance technology to make the greatest impact for patients.
