Innovation and Resilience: Defining the Future of Care Delivery

Perspectives from National Healthcare Leaders

The initial phases of the COVID-19 pandemic tested the U.S. healthcare system in unprecedented ways. Providers across the country raced to treat patients as coronavirus cases surged and key supplies, including personal protective equipment and ventilators, dwindled.
