Minnesota Health Care Roundtable

The Minnesota Health Care Roundtable is a semi-annual conference that examines topics affecting the evolution of health care policy. Hosted by Minnesota Physician Publishing, we assemble a panel of between six and eight different stakeholder group perspectives and present a moderated discussion in front of a live audience. Through a three-phase curriculum development process, panelists are involved with co-creating the conference themes. The events generate an nine-page report, published in Minnesota Physician and posted online.

The COViD-19 Pandemic

Strategies moving forward

Monday, November 16, 2020 — 1:00 PM

Objectives:

Our remote panel of diverse stakeholder perspectives will address these issues. We will discuss the rapid ascension of telehealth, clinic closings, health care worker layoffs, elective surgery bans, fearful patients, and more. We will examine how these issues could reshape health care post-pandemic, both positively and with special consideration of how to avoid what may develop negatively. We will provide a concise road map through an uncertain future and address how, as health care leaders, physicians may best help create informed public policy. Whether through interaction with patients, health systems, or the Legislature, physicians have a voice that must be informed and heard.

Background and focus:

In short order the COVID-19 pandemic has reshaped health care. Just as scientific investigation brings new insight on a near-weekly basis, policies change and evolve almost as quickly. Absent effective national leadership, while Minnesota has done well, the virus rages unchecked in the sunbelt to the point further spread must be anticipated.

The issues and challenges have expanded so quickly, and are continuing to expand in so many directions, that some new calculus must be considered to both track and anticipate the best solutions moving forward.
