What are the highlights of the Becker's Podcast so far? Which US Presidents have the best grasp of healthcare issues? What are the most pressing issues facing health systems in 2021? Do new entrants like Amazon, CVS, Walmartetc pose a real threat? Who do you think is going to win the race to the hospital at home? And what do highly successful CIOs CEOs do that others don’t?
