Snapshot of Recent HC Evolutions

Posted on December 19, 2011


Earlier this week I touched on some more creative approaches to the business of healthcare and cost control in a previous post. Although not centered on a study of market changes, it questioned out-of-the-box tactics already happening, and whether this was construed as desperate or innovative.

This recent Wall Street Journal article provides a good summary of some major trends in the healthcare market and how they affect the individual—which will provide some opportunity for inferring change in the caregiver and infrastructure (designer and builder) side as well.  It amplifies my position that companies will do whatever it takes to survive and thrive in the face of new regulations, even if it means massive restructuring or non-traditional business arrangements—and hospitals should be attacking their facilities and capital project decisions with the same rigor and open mind.
