COVID-19 "Second Wave" Forecast
Wednesday, July 15 | 4:00 - 5:15 pm EDT | Register
Home Care 100 Intelligence Group, with a panel of leading epidemiologists and healthcare experts, will present a freshly updated forecast of the Coronavirus and its potential impact on the US healthcare system. Multiple sectors will be on this call – home care, health systems, skilled nursing, senior living.
- Will we see a pronounced second wave - or multiple waves?
- With several states seeing big increases in infections in early June, are we seeing the beginning of a serious national wave, or regional waves?
- Have we learned any effective public health tools other than lockdowns?
- What is more likely, alternating increasing and decreasing waves of COVID, or a “steady burn”?
- What is our current US daily death rate of about 1,000 per day likely to be on September 1? January 1?
- What is our best guess on widespread vaccine deployment date?
We will also “game out” the healthcare impacts of a serious return of COVID:
- Do we think consumers will again massively postpone hospital elective surgeries?
- Is it possible for healthcare providers to mitigate patient anxiety through proactive messaging and branding?
- Are healthcare providers still at big infection control risk if there is another serious wave? If so, what can they do now to better master infection control?
- How do you best “contingency plan” with a major COVID risk still present this fall/winter?
- How likely is the US to do versus other countries over the 12 months?
- Is testing and contact tracing still part of the US public health response?
- Will we see big variability in states’ ability to control COVID?
Panel of leading epidemiologists and other healthcare experts to be announced.
