The Future of Post Pandemic Health Care: Preparing for the Roaring 2020s
Pandemics are known to accelerate societal changes that were already underway. This presentation will focus on how aging baby-boomers, the birth dearth, virtual health care, work-at-home, a work force on the move, big tech and retail providing direct health care and more will rapidly and dramatically change health care as the pandemic (hopefully) wanes.
