The virtual forum featured two sessions. The first session will involve national speakers who provided a broad perspective about the COVID-19 experience – the evolving impact on primary care and the changes necessitated by the pandemic. The second session included panel members who represent local payor organizations. They responded to the information presented by the national speakers and gave a local perspective on how payors view, and are planning to address, primary care as a vital component of our health care system in the wake of the COVID-19 crisis. How will they partner in the efforts to strengthen investments in primary care?
