The COVID-19 pandemic has been a tragedy for millions of patients and had a disastrous impact on the economy, both generally and in healthcare. It has tested healthcare institutions and leaders like nothing in generations. Yet, like all shocks to the system, it has also created opportunities for transformation. In this talk, Dr. Bob Wachter – an international thought leader in quality, safety, health IT, and COVID-19 itself – will describe the impact of COVID-19 on healthcare, with a particular focus on the digital transformation of the healthcare system.

Dr. Robert M. Wachter, MD is Professor and Chair of the Department of Medicine at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF). In 2021-22, the Department was ranked the best internal medicine department in the nation by U.S. News & World Report.

He has written two books on safety and quality, including Understanding Patient Safety, the world’s top selling safety primer.
