In the early weeks and months of the pandemic, there was a dramatic decline in the utilization of health care for emergent needs, elective procedures, and preventive care such as well visits and vaccinations. Beyond the direct impact of COVID-19 on individuals affected with the virus, what is the broader population health and financial impact of this foregone care during a pandemic?
At this year's NCIOM Annual Meeting on Tuesday, December 8 from 2pm-4pm, we will explore current research on the long-term potential impacts of this foregone care on population health and the health system. Panelists and speakers will discuss the factors that drive these impacts, such as changes in insurance coverage, capacity of the health system, changes to models of care and payment models, and drivers of health.
