Webinar and Blog Post Series:
Higher Health Care Value Post COVID-19

On Thursday, October 8, 2020, healthcare stakeholders joined the Research Consortium for Health Care Value Assessment for a webinar where leading health policy experts addressed how to enhance the efficiency of health care spending during and after the COVID-19 pandemic. Presenters included: David CutlerChristina Cutter & Nicholas Berlin, William Padula, Bruce Stuart, Kevin Griffith, Melinda Buntin, Jodi Segal, Allison Oakes, and Harold Pollack. The researchers will publish their findings in a Health Affairs blog series.

In the second of the 8-part series published the same day, “Establishing A Value-Based ‘New Normal’ For Telehealth” Christina Cutter, Nicholas Berlin, and Mark Fendrick of the University of Michigan assert that the post-pandemic role of telehealth will be complex and consequential. They recommend that the natural experiment afforded by the COVID-19 pandemic should drive a value-driven policy and research agenda. The presentation of their findings and key figure are available below.
