Dr. Geoffrey Rubin: The profound impact COVID-19 has had on healthcare and the specific delivery of Imaging services
Dr. Rubin is the George Barth Geller Distinguished Professor of Cardiovascular Research and Professor of Radiology and Bio-engineering in Cardio Thoracic Imaging at Duke University. He served as Chairman of the Department of Radiology at Duke University from 2010-2013, and prior to that was a Professor of Radiology at Stanford University from 1993-2010. He is past president of multiple industry associations and has authored over 250 peer-reviewed manuscripts, articles and book chapters. In this episode, Dr. Rubin highlights the impact of the pandemic on healthcare delivery to-date, focusing on the uncertainties still on the horizon – from financial losses to the implications of under performed imaging to patient fear of coming to the ED in an actual emergency. And, in the midst of all this, where is innovation hiding? All the pieces matter and Dr. Rubin speaks about the puzzle that is now the new normal in healthcare.
