Here are some takeaways!

20:24 - Carbon Health has a new avenue of business, which is helping companies as they open up their businesses. 

21:38 - How perception/vision of virtual care has changed since March
- Bruce Harrison - importance of seamless integration; Wifi connections; behavior
- Eren Bali -- virtual care has two uses: 1) urgent care with 24/7 virtual component 2) Existing doctor having a complimentary virtual component
- Sunny Kumar -- the universe of what can be done under virtual care has expanded; "You went to a world in which physicians thought you could do 15% virtual and that’s flipped around, now 80% can be delivered virtually."

36:31 - How the real estate footprint will change
- Eren Bali - there will be a hybrid pop-up clinic between physical clinic and virtual care; he calls it the last-mile physical footprint
- Bruce Harrison - until there's better visibility around reimbursements, it's hard to reinvent a future where the provider can't get paid

43:05 - How to address immigrants and under-served communities
- Sunny Kumar - Need to enable phone usage since 30 million Americans don't have broadband access
- Eren Bali - Also have to deal with payment solutions since many Americans don't have credit cards

52:22 - Patient satisfaction
-- Bruce Harrison -- Patient satisfaction has gone way up

59:13 - Virtual care adoption outside the US
-- Sunny Kumar - Other countries are farther ahead either because as in the UK, the payer/provider are aligned under NHS and in Asia, it's a tech-first approach

1:02:55 - Why there isn't more interoperability with data

1:28:00 - Silver lining that virtual care has brought
- Bruce Harrison - COVID changed virtual care
- Sunny Kumar - We'll know more about social determinants of health and how to holistically care for patients
- Eren Bali - We'll have more devices to provide care at a lower cost
