Cambridge, MA (PRWEB) December 06, 2013

InCrowd, the only provider of real time market intelligence for the pharmaceutical industry, today announced the results of research with 330 Gen X and Millennial health consumers from across the United States. The findings suggest commonalities and differences between the two demographics. While the term patient engagement was not commonplace for both groups, the Millennials indicated greater comfort and familiarity with the term than the Gen X health consumers. Both groups placed high value on developing a health partnership with their physician.

“Our goal with the consumer health research was to understand how people under the age of 50 typically engage with their physicians and healthcare providers and what benefits they get from that engagement. We also wanted to understand what they need to be more involved in their care,” says Kathleen Poulos, Co-Founder and CMO at InCrowd.

InCrowd research also indicated that both Millennials and Gen X health consumers are interested in online tools and technology to enhance communication and engagement. Convenience and easy access to information were cited by both groups as important needs to be addressed when thinking about patient engagement solutions.

The health consumer research identified several opportunities for both the pharmaceutical and health insurance industries to amplify the voice of the patient as they develop programs and tools that will help drive patient engagement. Learnings from the InCrowd data helps companies empower patients under 50 to take charge of their health.
