Innovation Digest – October 2020 Vol. 1

This edition’s articles survey the challenges that continue to plague our healthcare system and the wellness of our nation (even aside from COVID-19), including out-of-balance costs (and not just the drugs, folks), a predisposition to invest heavily in new, shiny technology without understanding its optimal use and lacking structures to guide its application, suboptimal use and sharing of vital data, and grossly under-funded public health and safety-net health systems. The next month will reveal whether we have even more to overcome, or the potential to build, strengthen and recommit to a healthy society.
