How patients get medical care in the United States is changing rapidly--and much of this care occurs outside the confines of an in-person visit with a physician. Patients can now communicate with their physician via patient portals, have a “visit” with a physician on their smartphone, receive a diagnosis from a computer algorithm, or be diagnosed or treated by a nurse at a local pharmacy. In the talk, Dr. Mehrotra will describe the rapid growth of these innovations in the US and their impact on the quality and costs of care.
