From the rapid adoption of virtual care to the rollout of COVID-19 vaccines, digital patient access has undergone a major transformation during the pandemic. Consumer expectations have risen accordingly – and permanently. For example, 63% of people say virtual care access will be an important factor in deciding where to seek care in the future. With convenience increasingly superseding loyalty, what will successful patient access strategies look like post-pandemic?

Join this webinar to hear what 1,000 people said about their evolving access preferences in a recent survey and learn how leaders like Mona Baset, VP of Digital Services at SCL Health, William Gagnon, Sr. Director of Digital Engagement at Boston Children’s Hospital and Katie Scott, VP of Digital Strategy and Innovation at UPMC Enterprises, are adapting their access strategies as care demand returns.
