It’s no surprise that many Americans aspire to live healthier lives. And while being healthy isn’t a new trend, the way consumers manage their health is distinctly different from times past. Going to regularly scheduled doctor’s visits, choosing careful diets and exercising throughout the week are still useful tactics in managing a healthy lifestyle, but many Americans today are much more mindful of other factors when it comes to managing their health, such as health care costs and alternative channels to seek care.
