About This Webinar

Differences in access across member populations contribute to disparities in health care and overall health and well-being. The traditional health care model has resulted in up to 82% of adults not receiving important preventive care such as cancer screenings and vaccinations. There is an opportunity for at-home testing to reshape the health care experience and address barriers to health care access such as location, transportation, education, and income.

This webinar will explore the barriers impacting member access and how at-home testing programs can help close the gaps. A member of LetsGetChecked’s Partnership team will share how our at-home testing solutions enable more equitable healthcare access by meeting members where they are, and a LetsGetChecked client will share their experience leveraging an at-home screening program to help members overcome barriers to accessing important preventative care.

Attendees Will Learn About

  • The impact the pandemic has had on health equity across diverse member populations
  • The top challenges impacting equitable health care access
  • How at-home health testing programs improve access to care and health outcomes
