To deal with the COVID-19 pandemic, the U.S. health care system acted urgently to change regulations, reimbursement models, member and beneficiary benefits, and the way care is delivered. These changes include: 

  • Reimbursing providers for telemedicine services
  • Allowing physicians to practice across state lines
  • Increasing capacity by expanding the role of caregivers
  • Relieving patients of the need to pay for copayments and deductibles while guaranteeing coverage for all COVID-19 costs

After this crisis subsides, which of these temporary changes will become permanent? What lessons will fundamentally alter the U.S. health care system? These are among the questions Robert Huckman will tackle on July 29, 2020 in a live, interactive, HBR webinar.

Huckman is faculty chair of the Harvard Business School Health Care Initiative and author of the HBR article, “What Will U.S. Health Care Look Like After the Pandemic?”

In this webinar Huckman will look at how the pandemic may impact: 

  • The use of telemedicine
  • Regulations and reimbursement
  • What it means to be a “health care provider”
  • The debate about the health insurance model

Huckman concludes his HBR article by stating, “For those of us who are not on the front lines, it is critical to start considering how the lessons of this crisis can be captured not only to make the crisis easier to manage but also to ensure that the ongoing operation of our health care system is improved in a fundamental manner.”

To start considering the most important lessons from the pandemic, the effect on the entire health care system, and the impact on your organization, join Robert Huckman and HBR on July 29.
