The Rise of Convenience in the HealthCare Sector
If you had to guess, what would be the most up-and-coming businesses right now? Dog dry cleaning? Vegan restaurants? Probably not. What’s really booming right now is convenience. Everyone values their time. We still value basic needs: we need to satisfy hunger, security, and whatever is most important to you. Convenience is highly valued because it frees up time we would rather be spending doing any or all of those things. We already know a lot about convenience because our culture is very different than it was 100 years ago. Cars were just invented, and the modern person couldn’t imagine taking a horse to work. It would be a very long trip. Imagine not having your cell phone to inform your boss you’d be late because your horse broke his leg tripping over an old timey fire-hydrant. Yeah doesn’t sound so great. This is why conveniences like fast food chains and self-check-out stations in stores are so popular and increasing in demand. More things are becoming convenient other than fast food and technology. Health care is taking huge leaps in convenience, as we have things like CentraCare and nursing assistants that arrive right at your door, and even Healthcare counseling online.
