Three Trends That Will Drive Healthcare Revenue in the Future
Most notably, provider organizations will notice a shift in revenue from the general hospital to more specialized care sites, experts wrote.
“Care is already shifting away from hospital-based settings to lower acuity, less expensive, more convenient settings,” the report stated. “Consumers will likely continue to drive providers to offer care in settings that are aligned with their preferences. Technological advances will likely redefine how care is delivered.”
For example, an acute myocardial infarction that requires hospitalization now could be prevented altogether in the “Future of Health” in which providers and patients leverage seniors and continuous in-home monitoring.
Health plans will also see a shift in revenue because of the emerging emphasis on preventive care supported by digital and patient engagement tools. This, in turn, will likely lead to less risky beneficiaries and, therefore, new ways to redistribute risk across covered individuals.
