COVID-19 is changing consumer behaviour, touching on every aspect of their lives including how they access and receive healthcare.
Since the onset of the pandemic, there has been an acceleration in fitness on demand, E-pharmacy and e-doctor at scale. A recent report by Mckinsey reveals that, of consumers who had to cancel medical appointments during the lockdown, 44 per cent accessed telehealth options, and online searches for telemedicine increased more than ninefold.
eHealth startups in Africa are seeing increased uptake as a result of COVID-19. Is this the time Africa has been waiting for to reform healthcare systems across the continent using innovation and mobile technology as the driving force?
If eHealth becomes the next normal, how are health providers, medical practitioners and insurance companies redefining their business models, operations, touchpoints and the paradigm shift in consumer behaviour? How are they reconnecting with their patients and how they can use digital technology to offer an equivalent, if not enhanced experience?
