The Advisory Board Company in the News
Vik Srinivasan, a senior analyst at The Advisory Board Company, who advises hospitals on purchasing robotic systems, said many have been willing to absorb the extra cost in order to gain market share. But that’s become more difficult as more hospitals acquired robots.
“If there’s a Walmart clinic open 15 hours a day, that’s the standard you may have to meet,” said Lisa Bielamowicz, MD, the chief medical officer at The Advisory Board Company. Online and same day appointments and walk-in on-site lab tests “are eventually going to rise to be the standard,” she added.
Bielamowicz hypothesized: “What if Walmart expands enough in primary care that it disrupts local, established patient-physician relationships and referral chains, combines clinical, pharmacy and consumer data to create comprehensive patient profiles and then uses that to create a membership model that can drive patient decisions, and then on top of everything, they’re able to launch or partner with a nationwide affordable health plan and require aggressive price concessions to participate in their networks?”
