As purchasing power shifts from the baby boomers to millennials, they will have a growing impact on healthcare technology trends, according to a recent consumer survey from PNC Healthcare.

"The rules of evolution dictate that those insurers and healthcare providers that survive or thrive will be those that adapt sooner than later to the preferences of this fast-paced, technology-driven generation," Jean Hippert, senior vice president of PNC Healthcare, said in a statement.

The survey asked more than 5,000 consumers between ages 21 and 72 years of age or older about patient centered care. The survey divided results among four generations: millennials (ages 21-32), Generation X (ages 33-49), baby boomers (50-71) and seniors (age 72 or more). It revealed the following key trends are being driven by millennials, indicating a growing purchasing power in society's youngest of-age generation.

Here are 5 key findings from the survey.
