The COVID-19 pandemic is changing the economy, the way we work and the health system. A comparison by PwC’s Health Research Institute (HRI) of American consumer sentiment before and during the pandemic reveals that people are accessing health information in new ways. Their trust has shifted as well.
In this webcast a panel of health experts will examine insights from PwC’s recent consumer survey findings: The COVID-19 pandemic is influencing consumer health behavior. Are the changes here to stay? HRI, which surveyed 2,533 Americans between April 2 and 8, found that the delivery of care may look very different after the pandemic. HRI’s results signal that US businesses could play an even bigger role in protecting the health of their workers, that the health system likely will make more room for telehealth and other forms of virtual care, and that the American consumer may take a more active role in managing health and participating in a system that is being remade.
