The Pivot to Virtual Care: Keeping the Momentum Post COVID-19

Over the past few months, the spread of COVID-19 has created a reality unlike anything we’ve ever experienced. While the pandemic has negatively influenced our lives in many aspects, the rising popularity of telemedicine has enabled faster diagnosis, increased efficiency, and reduced patient stress. Innovative communication technologies and the ubiquity of smart devices have made it possible for patients to more effectively connect with providers to receive care from the comfort of their own homes. In order to more fully examine the intersection of telemedicine and COVID-19, we’ve invited a panel of industry leaders to reflect on the transition to virtualized care, the staying power of telemedicine, and the “new normal” facing both patients and providers.

The webinar will be moderated by Mintu Turakhia, MD MAS, Executive Director of the Stanford Center for Digital Health. The speaker panel includes:

-Leslie Haas, MBA, Digital Health Strategy Manager at Stanford Health Care

-Gurmeet Sran, MD, Associate Enterprise CMIO at Dignity Health

-Nathan Favini, MD MS, Medical Lead at Forward

-Jeff Kosowsky, MD, SVP Corporate Development & Strategic Solutions and Interim CEO of Amwell/Cleveland Clinic Joint Venture
