Revera Launches Expert Advisory Panel Report
Over the summer and early fall, Revera engaged an external panel of professionals with national and international experience in areas of medicine, health policy, aging and geriatrics, and healthcare infrastructure, to examine the first wave of the pandemic and identify practical and actionable opportunities for improvement, both for Revera and for the entire sector. We would like to thank our Expert Advisory Panel for their hard work and insights and especially Dr. Bob Bell who volunteered his time as Chair of the Panel, and who retained editorial control of the report.
