A Conversation with David Asch, MD, MBA, Krisda Chaiyachati, MD, MPH, MSHP, Raina Merchant, MD, MS, and Sindhu Srinivas, MD, MSCE

A program from the Leonard Davis Institute of Health Economics at Penn

The coronavirus has hastened the pace of technological changes in health care delivery and prompted creative new approaches to remote monitoring and treatment. Join panelists from the Penn Medicine Center for Health Care Innovation, the Center for Digital Health, and clinical partners as we delve into examples from Penn Medicine that have expanded health care delivery in innovative ways during the pandemic. From using telemedicine to deliver primary care, to treating cancer and monitoring pregnancies remotely, the changes have been dramatic and inspiring. We’ll also discuss how these innovations are likely to change health care as we know it going forward.

This event is free and open to the public. See how to join below.
