With nearly 60% of consumers using the internet to find a new provider, it's critical for healthcare organizations to work with providers to ensure the profiles that appear on their websites and other digital properties are robust and accurate. While comprehensive provider information is important for everybody, the need is amplified for people of color, women, non-native English speakers, and those who identify as LGBTQ. In fact, research spearheaded by HealthSparq, Kyruus’ health plan division, reveals race, ethnicity, gender, and sexual orientation can impact people’s choices and preferences around providers as well as their experience with the healthcare system as a whole.

In a recent MedCity News article, I shared that growing consumer demands for convenience and digital self-service have created opportunities for health systems to accelerate innovation that closes the gap between expectation and reality for people searching for care. And consumer-centered solutions to meet these demands were abundantly displayed by health tech leaders—including Kyruus—earlier this month at the HIMSS Global Health Conference & Exhibition in Orlando, so it’s clear that healthcare consumerism is top-of-mind—and here to stay.

In many of our recent blogs, we have talked about the disruption the pandemic has caused in healthcare, how it has changed the healthcare landscape, and reshaped the patient journey. With many organizations having already pivoted (and some continuing to do so), the conversation has become “what’s next?” Though COVID-19 cases remain high in many areas, now is the time to start thinking about recovery and what it could look like.
