St. Patrick's Day, 2020, is when COVID-19 dramatically changed healthcare in the US.  Hospital were overwhelmed with ICU patients needing ventilators, stressing a system already short on resources.  Non-essential services were stopped.  Hospitals suffered major financial losses, estimated at over $300B in 2020.

For telehealth innovators, this was a boon.  But for so many innovators, getting the attention of hospital executives was an impossible climb.  We'll look at winners and losers, and what it could mean for healthcare innovation over the next decade.
