S6E04 – Returning to Work Responsibly: AAOS Guidelines
There is no doubt that COVID-19 is the ultimate disruptor and accelerator of 2020. It has disrupted almost all aspects of our lives, especially healthcare, and though we’ll find a cure, we will never be the same as before.
In this episode, we’ll learn the changes to individual orthopedics practices and the changes the academy is implementing to cope with the aftereffect of the pandemic.
We are honored to feature Dr. Joe Bosco, the president of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons. Joe discusses how we are going to survive in the post COVID-19 era, of the accelerated trends in healthcare consolidation, distance learning, shift to outpatient care, and more telemedicine.
