JAMA Network has published an article titled, "COVID-19 Crisis Advances Efforts to Reimagine Nursing Homes," and a related podcast featuring JAHF President Terry Fulmer on "A New Vision for Nursing Homes."

The JAMA Network article opens with a summary of the toll the pandemic has had on nursing homes and references a CMS-commissioned report that concluded, “The time has come for a turning point in nursing home care.” Author, Jennifer Abbasi, talks about the work The John A.
