Medical Care: Are People Getting Non-Covid Health Care Needs Met During the Pandemic?

https://www.flickr.com/photos/enerva/

At the beginning of this program, we will talk briefly with Maine CDC director Nirav Shah about the surging caes of Covid-19 in Maine.

Since the start of the pandemic, non-Covid medical care has had to shift gears—not only in how care is delivered to patients, but in how providers and patients have prioritized their health care. We talk about the repercussions of putting off routine or preventive care, how telemedicine is working, and how the pandemic is affecting those with chronic diseases and other serious health concerns.

Dr. Rob Chamberlin, chief medical officer, Accountable Care Organization, MaineHealth

Dr. Christopher Pezzullo, clinical director, Maine Primary Care Association
