Reimagine, Reboot, Retool: Healthcare post-COVID
COVID-19 in many ways catapulted health care into the future as it propelled the rapid adoption of technologies such as telehealth, drones that deliver medical supplies, and germ-zapping robots.

- Highlighted technological, structural and social divides that slowed efforts to control the virus; and
- Made the case for reimagining, rebooting and retooling America’s health care infrastructure.
