Dr. Charles Alessi, Co-founder and Chief Clinical Officer éditohealth from Spain, England, France focused his lightning talk on COVID and how it has driven healthcare to change and has ‘forced’ us to reflect on our system.

KEY TAKEAWAY: We need to take a step back and have a ‘lifespan longer than a butterfly’ view to see how things are going to be in the future.
