A Healthy Dose of Humility is Key with COVID-19, with Robert Wachter, MD - America's Physician Groups

“Humility is the watchword when it comes to making assumptions about #COVID19 because every new piece of data often upends what we thought we knew about the virus,” says Robert Wachter, MD, chair of the UCSF Department of Medicine and one of the most respected medical voices in the nation today. On this episode of the APG on American Healthcare podcast, sponsored by MAA Platinum Sponsor TDC Group, Dr. Wachter discusses #COVID19 #vaccine boosters, what characteristics healthcare systems need to handle during the next pandemic, and why artificial intelligence is going to be the biggest disruptor to healthcare. https://www.apg.org/event/a-healthy-dose-of-humility-is-key-with-covid-19-with-robert-wachter-md/
