AN INDUSTRY DISCUSSION
Friday, September 18 | 11 AM - 12 PM
Join us for a free, virtual panel discussion, featuring five local industry leaders.
Over the last several months, the healthcare industry has been at the frontlines of the pandemic, striving to provide the best care possible while making quick decisions, adapting to new roles and testing new treatments. It’s required them to creatively solve challenges and rethink how services can be delivered. To meet immediate surges, they have repurposed existing facilities, created alternate care sites and adopted tele-health. But how will healthcare environments look, feel and adapt going forward?
Recent events have shed light on the fact that spaces should be resilient all the time, not just when responding to a crisis.
How will the Healthcare Industry emerge smarter?
