We were curious – how are population health professionals changing their approaches in this changing landscape? What are the ways your programs have had to respond to COVID-19? What are you looking at for 2021 success?
So we asked you.
In the final months of 2020, the Wellsource team surveyed population health and wellness professionals to produce a report. Here’s what your peers in the industry are saying about upcoming initiatives, budgets, and goals for 2021 planning and beyond.
