Analysis identifies efficiency as important to post-acute care
A new report from Alvarez & Marsal Healthcare Industry Group stresses success strategies for post-acute care facilities over the next decade.
“With healthcare moving away from facility-centric reimbursement, the post-acute care sector is facing an inflection point that will produce clear ‘winners' and ‘losers,'” said David Gruber, M.D., MBA, Director of Research with Alvarez & Marsal Healthcare Industry Group. “Our analysis is intended to help operators take the steps they need to stay competitive and continue serving patients, a necessity as the U.S. population ages and requires healthcare institutions that can meet a complex array of medical, behavioral, functional and social needs.”
Success factors identified in the report include scale, efficiency, quality, data-driven analytics and risk management, business intelligence, integrated continuum of post-acute care offerings, patient and caregiver engagement (self-management), and management acumen.
