Our new infographic spotlights key findings from our fifth annual survey of 1,000 healthcare consumers to reveal how today’s digitally-empowered consumers discover, select, and schedule care. It’s top-line information at a glance – and is the perfect precursor to the 2021 Patient Access Journey Report, which explores five-year trends as well as brand-new insights on the access journey for healthcare services and care sites (in addition to provider appointments) and the role of price transparency in consumer decision-making.

With the continued growth of healthcare consumerism, it’s not surprising that nearly 60% of people say they use the internet to find a new healthcare provider, with many including health system and health plan websites in the search. While these sites are important avenues for patient access, inconsistent provider data between the channels can create a fragmented experience for those seeking care.
