Question: Share one change brought on by the coronavirus pandemic that you’d like to see stick, especially in healthcare?

Shelly Schorer: First the growth in digital and virtual visits. The expansion of digital has allowed patients to seek appropriate care for less acute outpatient cases and kept them out of the busy emergency rooms. This, however, still leaves a gap for the indigent and homeless population that may not have access to digital platforms so it still needs attention. We have seen this through the vaccine rollout process.

Q: What is one essential trait leaders need to lead effectively in healthcare today?

SS: Bias for action and fluidity to adapt to change.

Q: What would you like to see as the defining theme of 2021 for your industry?

SS: I am going to plagiarize our Division President Dr. Todd Strumwasser - we would like to see health equity as a defining theme in 2021.
