Harris Interactive and ZocDoc released the findings of a poll which explained that many young Americans are disconnected from the healthcare world, even if they are the most electronically-educated generation.
More than half of the group polled noted that health-related issues are frustrating to deal with, while close to two-thirds noted feeling like getting a doctor's appointment was out of their hands, and completely up to their physician's office.
"This study highlights the need for the healthcare space to play technological catch up to other industries," said Dr. Roshini Rajapaksa, assistant professor of medicine at NYU Langone Medical Center. "If we are not technologically savvy enough to make healthcare user friendly for our young population, then this generation will be less likely to regularly seek out the preventive care they need and deserve."
If a person is confused about how to get a proper healthcare policy that is affordable and easy to understand, it may be a smart plan to look at several options. Comparing health insurance quotes doesn't have to be difficult, and it could help a person get the plan they desire.
