WHCMAA Mini-Summit Series
Care After COVID: What the Pandemic Revealed is Broken in Healthcare and How to Reinvent It
A Fireside Chat with Shantanu Nundy, MD, MBA, Chief Medical Officer of Accolate, Senior Advisor to the World Bank, and practicing safety net physician
The COVID-19 pandemic took a magnifying glass to myriad faults in America’s inadequate healthcare system— inaccessibility, unaffordability, inequity, fragility—but it also revealed just how flexible the system can be in a time of crisis. Perhaps most surprisingly, the pandemic has ushered in a new era of healthcare that will actually improve our experiences as patients.
If we want to take advantage of this once-in-a-century opportunity to reinvent healthcare, we need solutions from doctors on the frontlines, who are currently seeing patients and changing healthcare. We need doctors who know what works.
Engineer, global health leader, and Johns Hopkins-trained physician Shantanu Nundy, MD, MBA, argues that the future of healthcare requires a radically new approach—one informed by lessons learned in the last year. In his new book, he outlines a bold vision to transform care in the post-pandemic era and shows how we can build on the explosion of telemedicine and digital health to create a more affordable and equitable future.
