Designing the New Normal
This pandemic has undoubtedly reshaped health and healthcare. There will be no returning to the old normal, and what lies ahead may only ever be considered abnormal. How then should we orient ourselves, what should we focus on, and how do we go about it? This will be a discussion of the human truths that the pandemic has revealed, and what our health systems might need to consider as they chart a path forward.
