The global pandemic has changed the way we work, from the mental and physical health of employees to the available health care services and how we access them.

This forum will focus on the impacts of the global pandemic on health care and the opportunities afforded by the crisis to rethink current models of accessing care and supporting mental health and wellbeing in the workplace—whether that be an office, a manufacturer, or a tourist destination.

Join us to hear from leading industry experts as they discuss:

  • How the lessons learned from COVID-19 are impacting health care delivery and administration
  • How employers can reset the workplace from a physical as well as a mental health and safety perspective
  • How access to health care services and technologies are evolving to improve health outcomes

The forum will be held over two days:

Bundle pricing and single day tickets are available.

Session 2

The Future of Access and Navigation of Health Care

As we approach the post-COVID-19 period, how will people use and access health care in this “new normal” and what pandemic-related changes will remain in place? This panel will discuss how health care providers will meet the changing needs of patients and the technology and innovation that will be crucial in helping people navigate and support the health care system.
