Healthcare in the wake of COVID-19 requires new ways of thinking about virtually every aspect of the U.S. healthcare system. An aging population. Chronic disease patterns. Accessibility. Equity. And of course, cost. So what does transformation really require?

Christy O’Gaughan led a global digital transformation during COVID, embracing three core tenets of transformation — the importance of unlearning, the ability to think several steps ahead, and the power of using your network to achieve greater outcomes. Lean in with Christy for her detailed perspective on what it takes and how to make it happen.
