The Hidden Costs of Deferred Care

Presented by the Chicagoland Chamber Healthcare Council

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that approximately 41% of U.S. adults delayed or avoided medical care as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. From dramatic reductions in cancer detection to increases in diabetic foot amputations, the damaging and long-term impact of this crisis within a crisis have yet to be fully realized.

Join us as our panel of experts breaks down the major clinical, financial and operational implications of these deferrals for those who pay for, deliver and consume healthcare.
