Episode #82: Introducing a limited podcast series on 'How COVID-19 is Reframing Healthcare in America' with Zeev Neuwirth MD

Zeev Neuwirth published on

Dear friends & colleagues,

In the three months since the Chinese government notified the WHO of the emergence of a new viral pneumonia, we appear to be on the rising ‘surge curve’ of a pandemic that threatens to overwhelm our healthcare system's capacity. Despite the stark realities of the present moment and the unknowns that lie ahead, there has been another surge - a surge of humanitarian mission and innovation, of empathy and hope, of teaming and transformation. I am awestruck by the creativity, ingenuity, dedication and collaboration I’ve been witnessing and am privileged to be a part of. It's difficult to express the gratitude that I and others have for the frontline providers and staff who are seeing patients in the clinics, emergency rooms and hospitals.

As I observe the herculean efforts around me, I feel compelled to contribute and use my podcast platform to shed light on how this pandemic is accelerating the reframing of American healthcare... in real time. To that end, I am launching a limited podcast series entitled,‘How COVID-19 is Reframing Healthcare in America’.  In this series, I reach out to interview future-facing healthcare leaders and entrepreneurs, and ask them two questions:

(1) How has the COVID-19 pandemic immediately changed the way you are delivering healthcare?  

(2) How will COVID-19 reframe healthcare in America for years to come?

I am awed and inspired by the responses I've gotten in the interviews I've already begun recording for this series. I can't wait to share them with you!

Friends - I hope you’ll join me in this historic window of opportunity that’s been thrust upon us. The first episode in this limited series is now available for download on the 'Creating a New Healthcare' podcast. I urge you to listen, share, and please reach out with your response.

Until next time, be safe and be well.
Zeev Neuwirth MD
