On April 7, 2021, the AMA held a webinar in the AMA STEPS Forward™ series: "Challenges to Team-based Care: COVID-19 and Beyond."
The webinar discusses the challenges to team-based care presented by the rapid pivot to telemedicine during the COVID-19 pandemic–and outline other, more common setbacks affecting team-based care, such as: staffing issues (open positions, turnover, recruitment, PTO coverage), workflow disruptions (technology issues, office emergencies, disagreeable patients), panel management during provider absence and regulatory roadblocks.
