Thomas Balcezak: Can Hospitals Recover from COVID-19? (Health & Veritas Ep. 36)

On the Health & Veritas podcast, Yale physician-professors Howard Forman and Harlan Krumholz talk about the latest news and ideas in healthcare and seek out the truth amid the noise. In the latest episode, Harlan explains what the research says about the immunity acquired from a COVID-19 infection, and suggests a framework for thinking about exposure risk. Then they’re joined by Thomas Balcezak, chief clinical officer at the Yale New Haven Health System. They discuss the financial and human capital challenges faced by hospitals in the wake of the pandemic.
