"Healing American Healthcare – Lessons from the Pandemic
In "Lessons from the Pandemic," the authors trace the course of the worst global pandemic in more than a century from New Year's Eve 2019 to September 2021 – through the eyes of the journalists who reported on it. Working from articles they have summarized and published in the Healing American Healthcare Coalition's newsletter, the Three Minute ReadTM, the authors take readers on a journey through Covid-19's impact globally, in the U.S. and other countries, then probe its effects on issues facing healthcare providers, insurers and pharmaceutical companies. Drawing on more than 212 articles from over 70 different sources during this period, the co-authors apply their extensive healthcare experience to drawing lessons from the front-line reporting as the pandemic unfolded.
Covid-19 is the fifth major outbreak of the 21st century after SARS, MERS, Swine Flu and Ebola. It won't be the last. Dalton and Eichhorn discuss seven key lessons that will help the U.S. to avoid the devastating impact of SARS-CoV-2 when the next viral outbreak happens.
