Returning to Health: How Clinical Navigation Can Bridge Gaps in Care in a Post-COVID World

In this session, learn how clinical navigation can help employers continue to drive positive health outcomes, reduce waste, and deliver a simple and accessible member experience during this unprecedented time in our health care system.
