Outpatient care that heals
Outpatient services have grown rapidly over the past 20 years as patients look for more convenient healthcare at lower costs. In fact, outpatient services now account for nearly 60% of hospital revenue.1
As the costs of inpatient care continue to rise at unsustainable rates, bringing outpatient services to patients is a long-term strategy that can attract more patients with commercial health coverage, while hedging against continued volume declines in inpatient admissions. Ambulatory care services also support the transition to value-based care.
Our strategic growth team consults with hospitals like yours to advise on outpatient service programs. We help evaluate investment opportunities and choose the best services to offer, geographical placement, size, and target demographic base. From market evaluation to predictive investment models, we guide clients from insights to implementation.
