Hospitals and medical practices are looking for the path to sustainable healthcare. It is a difficult journey that, for many, does not have a clear direction. We want to shine a light on the industry and share knowledge that will help leaders increase access and provide better outcomes.
Our report “Innovation & Flexibility: The Journey to Sustainable Healthcare” dives into the key issues we are facing as an industry and shows how healthcare organizations are solving them.
Hospitals cite physician staffing as the biggest challenge they see in today’s healthcare environment, making finding new solutions and models critical to charting a sustainable future.
Expansion of telehealth
More hospitals are utilizing telehealth than ever before. COVID-19 expedited this adoption, but over the coming year, most hospitals expect to expand their use of telehealth even further.
