Since Dr. Bottles’ first webinar in our COVID-19 series in April on Lessons Gleaned to Inspire Healthcare Transformations, we have learned so much about the pandemic, how to combat it, and its widespread impact on life as we know it. In this webinar, Dr. Bottles reviews the current status of COVID-19 including: The state of the US and global responses to the pandemic, vaccine development and distribution, testing and contact tracing, economic shutdown and other mitigation procedures, safety of children in public and private schools, progress in understanding the biology of the virus, and epidemiology.
Our healthcare system is in the midst of a crisis - struggling to ramp up quickly to respond to patient demand in response to COVID-19. Appropriately so, organizations are focusing on the immediate crisis. However, it would be wise to start thinking about how the healthcare system will function after the pandemic is over. Planning and preparation for healthcare post COVID-19 should be examined to explore the opportunities, challenges, and strategies that we will all face in the future. While no one knows all the answers, this webinar, originally presented April, 29th, 2020, with Dr. Kent Bottles, established health industry speaker, consultant, and thought leader, explores early lessons learned from this medical and economic crisis.
