So where are Canadians turning to access mental and physical healthcare advice, care, and support? They are accessing Walk-in Clinics and the growing number of Virtual Health Care providers.
Advanis, in our latest self-sponsored study - Alternative Channels to Healthcare - talked to over 1000 adult Canadians aged 18+ (November 23 to December 3, 2022) to understand their overall satisfaction with Canada’s healthcare system, their willingness to pay for alternative health services, and their interest in a holistic practice focused on using technology for preventive healthcare.
Advanis Alternative Channels to Healthcare study highlights include:
- Satisfaction with access is significantly higher among those who have a family doctor (75%) than those who don’t (45%).
- Over 7 in 10 individuals rely on walk-in clinics to some extent to care for their health and many have used or plan to use virtual care services.
- Interest in holistic practices and preventive care is higher among those with benefits if it's offered through employer benefits (80%).
