THE COVID-19 EFFECT: HOW THE CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC IS REFRAMING HEALTHCARE

March 27, 2020 | We are very excited to have a special guest host for the next HCLDR Tweetchat – Dr. Zeev Neuwirth! Dr. Neuwirth is an amazing speaker and podcast host. His book Reframing Healthcare – A Roadmap for Creating Disruptive Change is a phenomenal read – full of interesting ways to change your perspective on healthcare. Below is the blog he wrote especially for HCLDR to…ahem…frame the chat.

Blog post by Dr. Zeev Neuwirth

[From the blog post] Please join me for the next HCLDR tweetchat happening Tuesday March 31st at 8:30pm ET (for your local time click here). Together we will be discussing the following questions:

  • T1 How can we ensure that the patient/consumer voice isn’t lost during this #COVID19 crisis? How do we protect the gains made over the past decade?
  • T2 How is #COVID19 impacting the Social Determinants of Health – impacting issues such as food insecurity, income, education, safe housing, transportation, behavioral health, social isolation?
  • T3 #COVID19 is impacting healthcare staff – especially those on the frontline – what can be done to better support them as they care for patients?
  • T4 How will #COVID19 irreversibly reframe healthcare delivery over the next few years (i.e. home-based care, tele-health, policies & payment, etc…)?
