Connecting people to the right care is a critical first step in the complex patient access journey. To better understand how healthcare organizations can evolve their patient access strategies to meet consumer needs, Kyruus has surveyed consumers for the last six years to understand their preferences when it comes to searching for, selecting, and accessing care.

Today's consumer is accustomed to doing everything online—and its no shock that this preference carries over into how they find and book care, turning to digital channels more and more. A recent Kyruus survey showed that over 40% of consumers say they’d prefer to book their medical appointments online, half of whom would even switch providers for the ability to do so.

Boston Children’s Hospital is dedicated to improving and advancing the health and well-being of children around the world through its life-changing work in clinical care, biomedical research, medical education, and community engagement. Ranked as the number one pediatric hospital in the nation by U.S. News and World Report, the organization treats more children with rare diseases and complex conditions than any other hospital. We recently had the privilege of sitting down with digital leader Haley Sterczala Palazini, Director, Web & Digital Strategy at Boston Children’s, to learn how the organization revamped their enterprise website with accessibility and digital self-service in mind.

As we discussed in the first two blogs of this series, before the onset of COVID-19, virtual care was used rather infrequently, in fact few health systems even provided the option for receiving care. However, when the pandemic struck, we saw many organizations pivot quickly and rapidly implement virtual care programs to expand access to safe and timely care. And for the most part, patients eagerly adopted it and have been overwhelmingly satisfied with their virtual care experiences. In fact, our recent report, Patient Perspectives on Virtual Care, found that almost three-quarters of respondents wanted the option of virtual visits as part of their standard care moving forward and half would switch providers for the offering. Even now, as some health systems have resumed in-person visits, the desire for virtual visits remains high–many of our customers are still seeing the same number of virtual visits as they did this summer.
