The COVID-19 pandemic has upended virtually every facet of life. By necessity, healthcare organizations have limited or restricted in-person care to reduce the transmission of SARS-CoV-2. Unfortunately, this has kept many consumers from accessing timely healthcare. Hear how enrolled clients in two Philadelphia home visiting programs, Philadelphia Nurse-Family Partnership and the Mabel Morris Family Home Visit Program, have navigated challenges to access health care during the pandemic. During this panel discussion, clients and nurse home visitors shared their experiences of health care access and provision during the pandemic. They also offered a vision of how we can protect health care access during future pandemics and other systemic disruptions.
