WASHINGTON, DC USA -- HEALTHCARE UPDATE NEWS SERVICE™ -- MARCH 9, 2021: An Urban Institute survey during the pandemic showed that more than one in three U.S. adults – most with chronic conditions – delayed getting treatment, either over fear of the virus or because of COVID-19-related limits on services. Even as the public health emergency continues, studies are raising alarm about missed care in primary care, behavioral health, and dental care and within specific minority communities. What are the implications for individual patients – adults and children – and populations from forgoing regular checkups, preventive screenings and routine vaccinations? How can primary care address this potential new crisis while also helping to bring the COVID-19 emergency to an end? In this webinar, a panel of experts from a range of areas will address these questions and more.
