Coronavirus and the U.S. Health System: The Impact of COVID-19 on Primary Care and Outpatient Services

Educational Briefing and Q&A

The coronavirus pandemic has been devastating for many primary care and outpatient clinics, as the number of patient visits has plummeted. Although telehealth visits have increased, they've only made up for a small portion of the decline.

The Commonwealth Fund and the Alliance for Health Policy will host an educational briefing and Q&A for journalists and policymakers on the impact of COVID-19 on primary care – what it means for the health of Americans, the financial stability of practices, and access to care as states begin to reopen.

Listen to a recording of the teleconference.
