Millennials: Who Needs Primary Care Physicians? Give Us On-demand Healthcare

We'd like to extend a big thank you to our guest blog contributor - John Milne, Benefits Consultant, Corporate Synergies®

Millennials, and Generation Z behind them, are changing the way they access healthcare. In fact, 45% of 18- to 29-year-olds say they don’t have a primary care physician.1 Instead, they’re opting for on-demand healthcare.

Traditionally, individuals and families see primary care physicians several times a year and build relationships with their doctors over time. Visiting the same primary care physician when an illness strikes, or for an annual health & wellness checkup, can help the doctor notice changes in a patient’s health and catch issues before they become more serious (and costly).

But for Millennials, having a primary care physician isn’t necessarily a priority.

Ongoing Education on Alternate Sites of Care Can Reduce Inappropriate ER Utilization

With higher and higher ER bills coming in to the plan and members, employers are learning that it’s more important than ever for them to make sure that continual reminders are sent to their employees and members about which conditions can be handled by more convenient and lower cost sites of care such as a nurse advice line, telehealth (which often also covers behavioral health), on-site or retail clinic or urgent care. They’re also sharing details on how to reach these resources, and how much lower out-of-pocket costs will be to members who utilize them versus the ER. Keeping this information top of mind when it’s needed is the key to effective communications in this area.

Data: Your Secret Weapon

So, where are your hidden health-related cost centers? The same places they’ve always been: In plain sight. But for the lack of data transparency and integration of data tools and services, they remain elusive to spot. To uncover these cost centers, consider partnering with an analytics firm that not only can access data sets from everywhere patients access healthcare, but also combine them to create nuanced action lists.
