Gen Z’s view of healthcare

Editor's Note

A recent report from management consulting firm Oliver Wyman finds that Generation Z’s view of healthcare differs from its predecessors, the January 24 Becker’s Hospital Review reports.

The report was written after 2 years of focus groups and surveys of 10,000 individuals in the US and UK who were between the ages of 18 and 25.

Among the findings—members of Gen Z are:

  • tracking their health with apps and wrist watches and are twice as likely to go to social media for medical information
  • prone to social media misinformation and have higher rates of mental illness
  • more willing to discuss addiction and mental health and share personal health information
  • more concerned with physical fitness than previous generations.
