Phreesia and Klick Health teamed up to find out about LGBTQ+ patients about healthcare gaps and perceptions.

‘Un­con­scious bi­as­es’ and lack of trust lead to gaps in rou­tine health­care for LGBTQ+ com­mu­ni­ty — study

A ma­jor­i­ty of peo­ple in the LGBTQ+ com­mu­ni­ty feel mis­un­der­stood by phar­ma com­pa­nies, ac­cord­ing to a new study. The joint re­search from Phree­sia Life Sci­ences and Klick Health found that on­ly 45% of LGBTQ+ pa­tients sur­veyed at in-of­fice vis­its think phar­ma un­der­stands their unique needs.

The con­fi­dence per­cent­ages were even low­er among spe­cif­ic groups — on­ly 39% of LGBTQ+ pa­tients who iden­ti­fy as fe­male, and 33% of trans men and 30% of trans women, be­lieve that phar­ma com­pa­nies know what they need.
