COVID-19 and the Continuum of Care: Calls to Action for Health Leaders

June 29, 12:00pm, MDT - 1:00pm, MDT




What you'll learn

This roundtable discussion is the second in a four-part COVID-19 and the Acceleration of Digital Health webinar series featuring thought leadership from the HIMSS Digital Influencers.
The first discussion in this series, COVID-19 & The New Healthcare Journey: Meeting Patients, Consumers Where They Are takes a 360 degree look at the lasting impact the virus will have on how people experience and what society expects from the healthcare system moving forward.

Given the backdrop of COVID-19, health service providers face a triple threat in a myriad of financial challenges, workforce stressors and shifting demands on the system from patient and consumer populations. Health leader agility and creativity will be tested today, tomorrow and down the road.
As both our healthcare system and society triage, recover and look to the future, how will health leaders reestablish their value proposition in their care services across the continuum of care?
Geeta Nayyar, MD, MBA, Mike Rucker, PhD, Rasu Shrestha, MD, MBA and Sara Vaezy, MHA, MPH bring their perspectives from across the care continuum to share calls to action that will be critical for health leaders to consider when leading – with purpose and empathy – through these unprecedented times.
Learning objectives:

  • Redefine the role of patient, consumer considering the promise of digital tools to offer more integrated solutions that cater to a broader continuum of care
  • Discuss specific examples of innovative approaches and strategies that were put in place amidst the COVID-19 pandemic – and those that will be critical to system recovery
  • Explore key opportunities to address health inequalities by focusing on our most vulnerable populations
  • Highlight key elements of what it means to lead through and beyond crisis
