November 9, 2022

consumer health survey reportConsumerism is a growing force in healthcare. The industry has been pushing consumers to take a more active role in their health and wellness for many years. With growing involvement comes a set of growing expectations that healthcare providers will operate on consumers’ terms and that they’ll meet health consumers where they are.

In a recent survey of 600 health consumers, Geonetric, a digital experience firm serving healthcare organizations, explored how consumers prefer to navigate their care journeys in a post-pandemic world.

In this article, you’ll discover highlights from the survey, which included a continued acceleration of consumerism, with consumers playing a more active role in choosing health systems and providers. Patient loyalty to providers also eroded during the pandemic, and their priorities have changed. The survey explores:

  • Consumer channel preferences at various points on the journey
  • Consumer priorities that outweigh having an existing provider relationship
  • Differences between age groups in considering care options
  • How local health systems stack up against new entrants when it comes to choosing a telehealth provider
  • The predominant channel for scheduling an appointment, and when mobile apps make sense.
