Following widespread adoption of digital health technologies during the COVID-19 pandemic, new research from HIMSS shows that while technology will continue to play a key role in post-COVID-19 healthcare, U.S. healthcare patients want a personalized experience powered by new technologies without sacrificing standard of care.
“As we near the end of COVID-19, we’re re-emerging with a new lens of what healthcare can – and should – look like,” said Lauren Goodman, Director, Market Intelligence, HIMSS. “We know technology will play a key role in this new era of healthcare, but our data reveals the prior one-size-fits-all approach to care won’t cut it. We must be focused on finding ways to offer patients a personalized technology experience that not only meets them where they are in their care journey, but also their technology journey.”
This research was driven by the HIMSS Trust, a consortium of leaders across the healthcare and technology spaces who are collecting, analyzing and reporting on in-depth, data-driven market intelligence. Findings included:
On June 15, 2021, from 2-3:30 p.m. EST, HIMSS will unveil these research findings, as well as insights from clinicians, providers and payers, at the inaugural State of Healthcare online event. Event panelists will explore how this data can be used to plan, prepare and predict for the healthcare industry over the next three to five years.
The HIMSS State of Healthcare data was collected from March to April 2021 with a representative sample of 2,743 respondents in the U.S. The report represents online survey responses from 2,062 patients, in addition to 309 clinicians, 225 providers and 147 payers.
Join this digital event, which will bring new data-driven market intelligence to the healthcare ecosystem. Fueled by survey insights gathered through the HIMSS Trust—a consortium of leaders across the healthcare and technology space—trends and challenges will be presented to provide a benchmark on our current state to inform how we move healthcare forward.
