Aspen Ideas Health: The Future of US Healthcare in a Post-Covid WorldIt’s been a year of mRNA vaccines and health misinformation, of telemedicine and tented hospital sites. As we emerge from the pandemic, most experts agree there will be long-lasting effects on our health care delivery system, and that in many respects that system will not — and should not — return to “normal.” Experts also agree — and the public is with them on this — that the pandemic has provided an unprecedented opportunity to truly build back better, and to address systemic problems that we can no longer ignore. Harvard’s Atul Gawande and Google Health’s Karen DeSalvo discuss all this in a conversation about the future of medicine and health care in a post-COVID world.
