This Week Health

April 29, 2020: This episode is the recording of a live stream we hosted at the end of April, for which we welcomed Sue Schade, Drex DeFord and David Muntz for a roundtable discussion on what Health IT might look like after the COVID-19 pandemic. We start our chat sharing impressive action we have each witnessed during this crisis as well as the biggest challenges we see moving forward. The lasting financial implication of the crisis and the importance of data collection and systematic adjustment are underlined. From there, we consider what the often spoken about 'new normal' might look like and how organizations should approach prioritizing things after COVID. We cover privacy and staffing concerns before delving into the issue of interoperability and imagining a future with a better digital record system. Each of our discussants share some particular insight into areas of interest, showing just how complex this situation is and will be. We find ourselves at a daunting precipice, yet one that offers opportunities that might not have been imaginable without the difficulties we have faced as a health sector and society. We finish off this live chat fielding some questions on cybersecurity and leadership in a healthcare space, so join us for this incredibly insightful broadcast!
