Key trends affecting the Healthcare sector

September 09, 2019
  1. Healthcare is a growing economic force. 
    Although future healthcare policy remains uncertain, healthcare has become not only the nation’s largest employer but also one of the fastest growing sectors of the economy. Driven by a growing and aging demographic, the industry’s growth will continue to fuel demand for healthcare real estate in the long term.
  2. Healthcare’s expansion to “convenient care.”
    Healthcare delivery continues to evolve toward a more decentralized model away from inpatient care at hospitals. Healthcare consumers increasingly expect greater availability and a better experience when seeking care. In response, healthcare organizations have developed locations that are easier for patients to access. Outpatient facilities with varied services, including physician services and ancillary services that are necessary to manage populations in one location, provide an advantage when you care for patients—patients want convenience and efficiency. The transition to value is a key driver, with healthcare organizations exploring ways to keep populations healthier and control costs by moving care off the traditional hospital campus.

  3. Technology is pushing more healthcare services outside hospital walls.
    Technology is also a key driver in the shift to outpatient care. While patient preferences and financial incentives sparked the shift in procedures from high-cost hospital settings to more cost-effective outpatient locations, new innovations are adding momentum to the trend. Many surgeries and medical and diagnostic procedures that once required an inpatient stay can now be performed safely in an outpatient setting, thanks to improvements including minimally invasive surgical procedures such as laparoscopy and robotic surgery and new anesthesia techniques that reduce complications and allow patients to return home sooner.
