Few people are better situated to help us understand the tangled web of issues facing providers today than Becker’s Hospital Review Editor-in-Chief Molly Gamble. Beyond the capacity and supply problems triggered by the pandemic, hospitals and health systems are peering over the edge at some very real existential threats.

  • Takeaways from conversations with providers in the 10 hardest-hit states

  • New ways in which health systems are communicating with patient populations
  • How payers can support providers during the pandemic
  • Managing solvency in the face of declining patient volumes
