COVID-19 shed light on the urgent need for higher-quality health care, health inequities that exist among our communities, and a growing mental health epidemic at both the state and national level. This event will take a state-focused look at those issues, the longstanding changes to health care that will remain as a result of the pandemic, and the ability of health IT to impact both the cost and quality of health care.

This is a must-attend event for members of the health care industry and those who want to learn what the future of health care will look like for the state of North Carolina as we edge out of the pandemic.

Learn how the NC Chamber is advocating for improved health care value here.
