With the onset of COVID-19, healthcare workers, hospitals and industry across the world faced daunting challenges. Some required quick and innovative solutions, and others spurred groundbreaking ideas that have fueled the research and innovation pipeline for years to come. This panel features designers, researchers and innovators who have taken on the challenge of COVID-19 needs, and are working to make healthcare workers safer, hospitals more efficient, diagnosis more affordable, and treatment more effective. Speakers will discuss domestic and global needs, solutions and opportunities and put into context the events of the COVID-19 and the phrase “resource poor” as it relates to the U.S. healthcare system.
