  • Is retail health COVID-19 proof?
    • Walmart Health is promising because it provides convenience and affordability while having a business that is minimally affected by the pandemic. 
    • There have been multiple stores that have been noted as COVID-19 hot spots, but surveys tell us this data has failed to dissuade consumers from going to the stores.
    • Retail healthcare is focused on community-based care, which has shined during this time. 
  • Is there a generational difference? 
    • Millennials don’t feel a need to have a relationship with their PCP. 
    • COVID-19 might be the time to build trust with consumers and educate them about the importance of having a PCP.
