The Great Delay: How Deferment Impacts the Entire Consumer Journey of Care
After decades of patient engagement strategies, COVID created a gap/dislocation between those who provide care and those who seek it when patients were regularly told to stay away from care settings. Today, record numbers of Americans are still putting off care—to the detriment of their health and continuity of care. Why?
Join Lirio Chief Evangelist Patrick Hunt and special guest Ryan Donohue, Strategic Advisor at NRC Health, as they explore the drivers of deferment and the surprising truths about traditional patient experience. How does access and engagement correlate with motivation, and what matters most to consumers as they make their way through healthcare? With a glaring spotlight on these changing dynamics amid worsening outcomes, the healthcare industry must identify what it will take get people to return and keep them engaged in a more equitable, consumer-oriented future.
Questions and comments from our audience are highly encouraged! See you soon.
