Examining the future of health care

The coronavirus pandemic’s impact on our health care system may be seen in more ways than in how we manage people with COVID-19. Since March, routine care, scheduled surgeries and wellness exams have been put mostly on hold or done via teleconference. Primary care physicians are at the front lines of care and can help identify issues before they develop into something more serious. Hosts Maiken Scott of WHYY in Philadelphia and Brian Ellison of KCUR in Kansas City discuss what the future of health care may look like. Will physicians rely more on telemedicine? How will this affect the future of the medical profession? What should patients expect of their physicians? You'll hear from: Dr. Neda Frayha, internist and primary care physician in Baltimore; Shantell Williams, recent Truman Medical Center patient; Dr. Catricia Tilford, Pediatrician  at Samuel U. Rodgers Health Clinic; and Raina Merchant, Director of Penn Medicine Center for Digital Health.See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.
