About the book: In Care After Covid, practicing physician and business leader Dr. Shantanu Nundy—Chief Medical Officer of Accolade, which provides technology-enabled health services to Fortune 500 companies as well as small businesses—lays out a comprehensive plan to transform healthcare along three dimensions: distributed, digitally enabled, and decentralized. Distributed healthcare will happen where health happens. It will shift from where doctors are to where patients are. Digitally enabled healthcare and the relationships that are central to care will be strengthened by data and technology. Decentralized healthcare decisions and resources will be in the hands of those closest to care. The power to determine who gets care and how they get it will shift away from governments and insurance companies to communities, employers, doctors, and patients. Care After Covid shows all stakeholders in the healthcare ecosystem exactly what needs to change and, more importantly, how to do it. The time to act is now. We can’t afford not to.
