Did you know that while women make 90% of household healthcare decisions, 66% of them feel misunderstood by the healthcare industry. Despite being such a large stakeholder group in healthcare, their unique needs tend to be misunderstood and overlooked. Healthcare organizations and life sciences leaders can impact change and improve women’s care experiences through thoughtful segmentation, digital innovation, and much more.

On May 15th at 11:00 AM CT, we will be having a LinkedIn live discussion with leaders from Perficient, GoHealth Urgent Care, American Cancer Society, and BD on inspiring and supporting proactive women’s health. Timed to coincide with National Women’s Health Week, our conversation will explore ways the health ecosystem seeks to better understand women’s needs and to better support a meaningful care journey.

I connected with each of our five incredible panelists to ask what they are excited to discuss on the panel. I loved getting to learn more about their backgrounds and focus areas through their responses, and I’m sure you will too!

Women have driven decision-making in healthcare for centuries, and it will be exciting to explore how the industry has not only served them but also let them down in some important ways.

“I’m thrilled to participate in Perficient’s May 15th panel discussion exploring ways to support women’s health through digital. It will be especially interesting to discuss the truths about health care consumers and women as caregivers for themselves and their families.

Our recent research has shown that in many instances caregiving is a family affair, including sons, husbands, and fathers along with daughters, sisters, and mothers. I am looking forward to sharing and learning about how we can use digital experiences to inspire and support all these consumers throughout their journey.”- Barbara Rhodes, Senior Manager, Digital Marketing, Home Care DTC, Urology & Critical Care at Becton Dickinson

I’m excited to be a part of Perficient’s panel discussion on May 15th and look forward to exploring the concepts of intersectionality, segmentation, and how it’s time for marketers to see women not as a monolith but an array of unique experiences.” – Chandra Craven, Senior Healthcare Strategist, DE&I Lead at Perficient
