Sustainability Beyond Relief: Bolstering our First Line of Care

Alliance for Health Policy

Wednesday Jul 7, 2021 12:00 pm to 01:00 pm EDT
United States

The COVID-19 pandemic has shaken up all facets of the U.S. healthcare system and has forced us to rethink our approach to our first line of health care, including public health departments, community health workers, community health clinics, and primary care practices. During this final stretch of the pandemic, COVID-19 continues to blur the lines between traditional public health actions and those completed by the primary care system, such as contact tracing, vaccine deployment, and the need to build trust and develop messages specific to target populations.

During this briefing, you will learn about:

  • The opportunities and challenges that have arisen for first-line providers
  • The role of data sharing, payment systems, and workforce provisions
  • Long-term policy options to ensure COVID recovery resources are consistent with the broader aim of creating a more resilient public health and primary care infrastructure

Panelists include Ann Greiner, PCC’s president and CEO
