How to find your next outpatient service line opportunity

Hospitals are seeing an increasingly crowded outpatient market due to shifting procedure volume, changing payer dynamics, and competition from non-hospital providers.

To compete, many will need to expand services beyond the walls of the hospital rather than rely solely on existing infrastructure. First, you'll need to understand the forces that are driving demand in the new outpatient market.

Three forces demanding a new outpatient strategy

1. Activated patients

Patients seeking accessible, affordable sites of care.

2. Non-hospital competition

ASCs, physician offices, and 3rd-party providers challenging hospital “first mover” advantage.

3. Technological Innovation

Evolving clinical landscape forcing core business units out of acute care setting.
