Breaking down barriers to care
Millennials view healthcare from a different lens than prior generations. Health providers and caretakers need to be equipped to meet the concerns of a demanding generation who expect better preventive care than their predecessors. Research and increasing awareness are essential for taking care into their own hands.
Many of these concerns come from a lack of 21st century solutions to historical healthcare issues. Solutions like phone apps could alleviate stresses around appointment scheduling and reminders. In the information age, self-education is potentially boundless, but patients can’t get healthcare information from a centralized source.
