Patient Experience of Obstetric Care During the COVID-19 Pandemic: Preliminary Results From a Recurring National Survey

Author: Journal of patient experience

Throughout the pandemic, Ovia Health has been monitoring the patient experience so that we can adapt our services to best meet the needs of our members. More than 70,000 members have responded to a survey we’ve been running each week since the Spring of 2020. As a result, we’ve uncovered that 30% of all prenatal care across the country, has been altered over the course of the pandemic.

We published our preliminary findings in the Journal of Patient Experience and continue to adapt our services and products to meet the needs of our members, including offering remote patient monitoring devices, such as blood pressure cuffs to enhance the virtual care patients continue to receive.
