KEYNOTE ON-DEMAND | Healthcare Without Walls: A Roadmap for Reinventing U.S. Healthcare

Imagine a healthcare system that better anticipates what individuals need to be as healthy as possible, that delivers care in the most appropriate location, from hospital to home, and does so with better quality at lower cost. COVID-19 has accelerated the move to more care being delivered beyond the hospital and in many cases virtually. From telehealth to hospital at home, patients and consumers want care that is not only high quality, but also convenient and affordable. Even before COVID-19, the evolution to a more “distributed” system was underway, although a variety of technological, human, financial and regulatory factors slowed progress. How will the response to COVID-19 change that trajectory and how will supply chain need to adapt? Susan Dentzer, senior policy fellow of the Duke-Margolis Center for Health Policy, shares research on what it will take to achieve a healthcare system without walls, followed by a discussion with GHX executive Karen Conway on how supply chains are already responding and what the future could hold in this dynamic environment.
